“Courage is not the absence of fear, but the presence of faith.”
There are times when you take a leap of faith. Whether it is life, love, they-made-me-do-it or change-you-can-believe-in, faith (and the lack thereof) is a strong emotional glue that holds you to your convictions.
In this changing world, you often find yourself eager to do the right thing for your family, your work, your community and your world. No longer able to stay quiet, you struggle to find a way to play a role equal to what you believe attainable. Belief directs your frame-of-reference as you navigate through life with some reliability and purpose. You become more confident as your faith builds during your ever-transforming life.
Today, you are constantly showered with subjective, unreliable and false information regarding how clean you live, the food you eat, clothes you wear and your environmental impact. Emotional marketing magnifies the false narratives and stirs you into a state of overwhelm over what is right, ethical, healthy and environmentally sound.
And, there’s the rub. . . Be cautious of where faith leads you. Belief is not always anchored in truth. You may find yourself fearfully clinging to a false belief (in something) as if it were a life preserver. Look before you leap!
