I am grateful for the opportunity to collect my award few days shortly after my swift departure for the next performance in town.
Thank you for your support and recognition. It is important to protect your inner peace, as external influences can lead to turmoil. I choose not to succumb to such pressures.
Remember, the grass is not always greener on the other side. Embrace and nurture love where you currently stand.
