Living a Faith-Filled Life

”Come to the edge, He said. They said, We are afraid. Come to the edge, He said. They came. He pushed them… and they flew.” – Apollinaire, Guillaume

This is one of my all-time favorite quotes about fear from the brilliant French writer Guillaume Apollinaire.

We, as human beings, are like the birds: everyday, we have two choices. We can choose Faith or Fear. Both believe in something. One is Positive and Negative. Both believe beyond reason. What will you choose today?
We never know what our faith will lead us to. For me it led me into following my heart and taking big decisions that led me into healing, recovery, and for my career, traveling the world and making the greatest memories and connections I will never forget and always cherish. If I would have lived in fear I would have never experienced seeing the world.
Not being able to control the outcome of our expectations in life cannot hold us back from moving forward and trying new things; bold things. There have been so many times that I have went for something and did not get the result that I would have hoped for, however, the satisfaction came from trying, and not living my life and wondering in fifty years, “I wonder what would have happened if…”
Never be afraid to take leaps of faith and fly. Never be afraid to feel life; It will pass you by.
Today I choose faith. May I let my choices reflect my faith in all that I do.
God Loves you.
