Heather Mills says she is "at peace" following her bitter divorce battle from Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney
Heather Mills is "at peace" following her bitter divorce battle from Sir Paul McCartney.
The 40-year-old charity campaigner - who received a £24.3 million settlement from the Beatles legend - is attempting to put her troubled year behind her and is concentrating on her charity work.
She said: "I'm in a really good place at the moment. I'm really at peace. I've spent a lot of time healing. It's been a very, very difficult time, the hardest ever, but I now want the chance to focus on charity and continue my work with the causes I really care about.
"It's a new start for me. Everyone has chapters - and some people are lucky enough to have chapters that last for many, many years. You have to appreciate what you have had, learn from it and move on. We've all got our own books, we've all got our own stories."
Heather also revealed her and Paul's four-year-old daughter Beatrice has helped her get through the difficult period.
She added to Britain's Hello magazine: "Beatrice is the light of my life, an absolute joy. I think when you have a child later in life, you appreciate it even more. I think on top of having lost so many - I had six miscarriages and two ectopic pregnancies - you really, really appreciate it.
"I was considering adoption, all sorts of things, nine years ago before I met her father."
