Welcome to Write Your Vision!

Deep down, most people have dreams - they may be forgotten, unspoken, or unrealized - but they are there. I want to help you remember and believe in them again...

Recognizing Your Power

For many of us, life is simple.  You get up, go to work, come home, have dinner, hang out with your spouse or kids, and live for the weekend.

If you're happy, celebrate that!  enjoy that!  live for that!  It's what we all want.

If there are things in your life you wish were different, then it's time to recognize your power.  You and only you have the power to change YOU and to change your circumstances.  If you have made poor decisions in the past, forgive yourself and change them / rectify them.

The fabulous thing about being alive is that you have the power to change every single minute of every day.  The goal here is to improve and to learn every day!  To get better... to become who and what you are meant to be.  To live your dream.

No one else can save you.  No one else can change you.  This is a lesson I had to learn the hard way.  When things weren't going my way, I let myself get caught up in the circumstances.  I could only see what I didn't have.  I felt bad, like a failure, inadequate and lost.  I let the circumstances tell me who I was...

Finally, I woke up.  I realized all the negative thoughts I had running through my mind weren't coming from me.  They were coming from Fear, Doubt, Insecurity.  In my heart, this wasn't me.  Those thoughts weren't who I knew myself to be.

I had to change.
I had to change myself.  I had to change my own mind.  I had to stop entertaining those negative thoughts and speak what I knew to be true. 

So I started writing down that Truth.  Then I started speaking it.  It takes courage to change.  It takes conviction and humility to pick yourself up and to start again.  It defines your character and demands integrity and honesty with the people you love.

Don't be afraid of where you've been or what you've done.  Embrace your mistakes as strongly as your successes because you learn from both.

By getting REAL with yourself, you will FIND your power.

Recognize it!  Embrace it!  Once you do, you'll never go back again because you'll see each day truly is what you make it... so make it your best day.  When you do, God and the universe recognize this positive and will empower your dreams to come to you.

Have a Little Faith in Me
