The desires in my heart were given to me by God ✨ ⠀

I spend a lot of time dreaming up scenarios down to the detail, planning for the future, and I get stories in my head that feel so real I know they have to mean something. ⠀

Confession: I have built, decorated, and designed my dream house down to the candle scent, dining room table, and backsplash in the kitchen. I know where it’s going to be, I picture having my friends and family there, I know the exact feeling that I will have in this house. ⠀

I spend time visualizing how it will feel sitting in my chair by the big window, feeling the warmth of the coffee mug in my hands, and how the wood floors and furniture will smell. ⠀

I’m not lying when I say I have planned and visualized down to the minute detail. ⠀

My whole life I’ve thought that I wasn’t grounded enough and I’ve been waiting and waiting for life to plummet me back to earth. I often feel like I’m surrounded by people and things that are constantly trying to prove to me what the “real world” is actually like. Yet, the good things keep happening. ⠀

Yes I have bad days and hard times, but I am always safe, and I’m always moving up, because God and I are tight like that. I know deep in my heart that I am well and good, no matter what, because God has my back. ⠀

If anything, God has proven to me more about what the “real world” is like because these thoughts and stories I’m constantly surrounded by, are the truth. ⠀

I dreamt about Future Boss Lady for five years before I held it in my hands, but happened. ⠀

The thing is, you make yourself available to the “what” and you define your “why” and then you make yourself available for God to give you the “how”. ⠀

I have finally come to see that my “dreams” AKA my extremely vivid visualizations are me manifesting. They are me raising the bar on my life constantly, because I am making myself available for something better and better all the time. ⠀

In this season of learning I have come to find that when you get an idea, visualization, dream — whatever, locked into your heart, it is already done. It is done, it is meant for you, and it’s just a matter of time. ☀️
