It’s hard to have courage if we have no faith. They go hand in hand. For those of us who don’t fit into the box and we know there’s more to life than material gain or goals and accomplishments, there’s a strong pull in our hearts that we can’t deny. But we don’t always know how to get from where we are to where we’re meant to be. Over the last year I started realizing how everything meant to be always finds a way, my faith developed and this is the place from which I began taking courageous action. Up until that point what I called courage (closing my business, leaving an abusive friendship) took courage yes, but were desperate times calling for desperate measures because I let myself stay stuck for too long. They were choices that I felt I had no choice but to make. It was do or die. My soul was calling me forward in a massive way even though I wasn’t aware of it at the time. But when I found my faith, my courage deepened and I could start making empowered decisions quickly and slowly make adjustments later as needed. I began trusting in life, trusting in myself, realizing that only I could block the flow and the only way I could do that was by letting my fear be bigger than my faith. Yes I still have fear. Yes I still hear my fear but I do my best to make my faith bigger. This week I show up in my life still saying playing small is no longer an option. I have my faith to lead me.
