Dream Big

Dream Big

I really like to imagine what my life will be like in the future and I like to dream big. Then I move away from the past events that have bothered me so much and I focus on what my next move will be because I now realize that I have the power to choose my next move. Remembering that I have the power to choose makes me feel empowered and makes me love myself so much. I used to hate myself so much but now I don't. I also make the absolute best I can of my present situation. Whatever it is, I make the best of it. Life goes on and I am living it and I don't have to wait for anyone to enjoy it.
