There have been many times, long periods of time, when I've felt powerless. Over the past five years, I have realized, I not powerless, I AM powerful. More and more powerful as I believe more and more.
My husband, Ed and went to the movies last night. We saw "Switch". While this was a fictional account of a man with 23 personalities, one thing he said is absolutely true. I am whatever I think I am. I don't say this as a lofty hope. I know it because I've experienced it in my life.
In the beginning, it was little more than wishful thinking. Today it's clear to me, it's true. I have become, am becoming, all that I set out and thought about, dreamed about, being. There are still many things I desire to become. Today I believe God will make a way where I can see no earthly way. Today I can take one step in the right direction and trust Him to lead me where I need to be.
Some of the things I have believed for and seen come to pass: Became a physical therapist assistant, fit, youthful, energetic, wise and loving. Some of the things I am believing for: To become a sought after motivational speaker, author, travel and get paid for it, to be a big part of my children and grandchildren's lives in a good way.
Today, I am excited for each new day. My intention is to look for the miracle in everyday. It's interesting, the first time I wrote this as a goal for my day, the day appeared to be a disaster. Looking back on it the next day, I realized, even in the chaos and discomfort, there was a miracle. A realization about myself that has changed me in a powerful way.
Fantasizing the freedom to believe and dream big. To see the miracle, even in a "bad" day.
