Have a Little Faith

Some things don’t require an explanation.  We believe them just because they are and we trust in them just as we trust in our family and friends.  At times we even put our trust in inanimate objects.  But why?  What makes us so sure that things will work out?  What gives us the ability to stop worrying and doubting?  The answer is faith.

When we allow faith to enter our lives, we are able to surround ourselves with peace and harmony.  Having faith doesn’t translate to believing in a higher power.  It means giving power to yourself – and if your power tells you to believe in God, Buddah, Allah, or whatever name you give it, then that’s great.  If not, that’s great too!  What faith really is, is the ability to give yourself the confidence to go that next step-to leave the job you hate or to leave a relationship that’s no longer working.  We all have the ability to create our own reality and rule our lives instead of letting our lives rule us.  But most of us don’t, because we like the stasis.  We either like taking the easy way out, don’t want to focus on ourselves, or both.  The truth is that focusing on you and allowing yourself to be the person you want to be requires strength and at times, a leap of faith.  You’re giving up the known for the unknown and willing to make a sacrifice to better yourself and better your life.

If you are true to yourself,  you will be able to bring courage into your life, and in turn formulate your life’s purpose and direction.  When we believe in ourselves, our purpose in life and our career path will naturally fall into place.  It’s time to stop doubting yourself and start giving yourself a little credit!  When you allow faith to take over, your power will allow you to Live Free.

With Love,

  1. Love this article Rachel and the sentiment of what you write about on your blog. I totally agree that faith is confidence, but that sometimes it’s just a massive risk and leap of faith.

    Thanks for your comments on my blog on chapter 1 of The Fix-It Fairies, which is a current work in progress. I’ll let you know when I’ve finished.

    Seasons greetings, Jen
