I have a dear friend that I will call My Angel.
She taught me a concept that is brilliantly brilliant. It's all about Telling a New Story. Changing the old story, because the old story gets old.
After some raw emotions and potent posts recently about Mormonism, and a friend pointing out to me that I am still so defined by that, I've decided it's time to Tell a New Story.
So here it is:
I am defined by me. I am defined by who I am, and what I choose to surround myself with.
I am surrounded my loving family and friends who are accepting and nonjudgmental of me.
I am surrounded by opportunities for growth and success any which way I turn.
I am free of any obstacles that hold me back from Spiritual Growth.
I am on a clear Spiritual Path that leads me toward enlightenment and joy.
My experience with religion brought me what I needed for very crucial periods of my life, but now I have moved upward to more light and truth and beauty.
I am grateful for how Mormonism served me at times in my life when I needed guidance, when I needed a path, when I needed structure.
I am now secure in myself and my gifts and my own power.
I am light and knowledge.
I am joy and brilliance.
I am free.
I am limitless.
I am connected to the force that is Love, which created all things.
Through that connection, I create a life of fulfillment and grace and abundance.
