It's time to change my life, the first step is changing the story I tell myself and the world about it. My therapist gave me a NO button because she see's that I've been a people pleaser for far too long.
What would happen if I said no to the lie, and started saying yes to the imagination instead? What would that look like? At what point can I let go of what it was and make it what I "see"? How about now?
When we ask ourselves these kinds of questions, things will change. I am here to learn to love myself then others as myself.

Life as I see it would be full of light, laughter, music and dance. It IS and more. If I am to realize what God made me to be, I have to agree with Him. I AM what God says I am, I can do what He says I can do which is all things through Christ, my Lord.
Today my story is changing, becoming what I desire and letting go of what WAS. Just because certain things happened to me, does not mean I have to hang onto them and keep re-hashing them over and over in my mind. I think God gave me a vision of what I was created to be, it is up to me to live it out.
A good test to see if you are taking the journey you were given is: Are you happy and content, or uncomfortable and irritable? That irritability is the spirit in you screaming to be let out and express itself. Let go of the fear, the "what ifs" and open the door to your dreams. For: "My God is able to do abundantly above and beyond what I can ask or think or dream, AW)' data-cr="#cen-ESV-29255AW">according to the power at work within us...Ephesians 3:20" He implanted our dreams in our hearts, let go of the fear and ride the dream!
