Iris Nichole Patterson
Years living with Bipolar Disorder: 4
Brilliance: I always find a way to reinvent myself. When obstacles interfere with my plans, I find the strength to overcome, strategize and create a new road to success.
Beauty: My heart. I always check my intentions. If they aren't pure I do some soul searching because I live by the mantra, "what comes from the heart, reaches the heart".
Boldness: I'm fearless in life period. I want to see what I'm made of. I want to show the world that we all have wings and success is measured by how hard you're willing to try.
What brings me joy: Giving, watching my visions unfold, pouring into my daughter, loving on my husband, operating in my gifts, and allowing God to use me.
My Healing Power: When I started operating in my spiritual gifts is how I found true joy and total healing. I no longer experienced frequent episodes of bipolar depression.
