By the time I was 12 years old, I was in a psychiatric chair.  I found myself an over-achiever in psychosis.  I disappeared into an imaginary world, hiding from the real world.  See, I grew up having all these voices telling me who I was not.  All these voices telling me what I could not become.  All these voices telling me that I didn’t have value or worth.

You’re an engineer and you’re not successful. Everyone thinks you should be fulfilled.  But in your soul, you want to be a painter.

You’re a doctor and you’re making great wealth and you’ve actually helped people. But inside your soul, you long to be a humanitarian.

You’re a teacher and you decide that you want to be an actor.

You’re a tech entrepreneur and you decide you want to be a movie producer.

It’s amazing how we humans can imagine a life we’ve never lived.

Then, one day, I became cognizant of the beautiful truth, that we can either hide inside our imaginations, or take our imagination and create a better world.  The question is not whether you will create, the question is what kind of world you will create. (Erwin McManus)

Wishing you peace and wellbeing as you create YOUR world.

PS: Remember to hold the ones you love just a little closer and tighter this week (without expectations).
