Don't let the gremlins win.

"If you hear a voice within you say "you cannot paint," then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced." ~Vincent Van Gogh

There are voices that try at times attempt to dissuade us from the hopes, dreams, and joyful things in our lives. Sometimes I call those voices "gremlins" to help remind me not to play into, feed or water them too much.

Don't let those voices (internal or otherwise) keep you from what you are called to do.

Stopping them is as simple as taking Van Gogh's advice.

Go out and do what the voices say you can't - and you win.
The world wins too.

And - as it should be - the gremlins loose.
(Or at least you get them out of the drivers seat.)
