“Come from a place of faith, not fear”. Until now I always I thought I KNEW what that meant. Tonight I did an exercise that evaluated my fiscal life. HOLY CRAP ( I am refraining from using stronger language)! THIS brings new meaning to having faith!
Having faith IS hard! Why haven’t I realized this before? Was it just “a saying with no meaning”, before? Had I not actually put it into action? I honestly can’t answer this question. What I CAN tell you is that this (“come from a place of faith”) is a message that I have received over and over (and over, and over and over – you get the picture) since I become temporarily income challenged. I can’t articulate it, but today is the first time I really, 100% truly feel what it means! And man it is HARD!
I pride myself on being a positive person; I always see the silver lining. I purposely block out negativity (some people even mistake this for being naïve <thanks to my good friend who pointed this out, I appreciate it and YOU!!! >), but when it comes down to it – having faith IS hard.
It is hard, NOT impossible. I think I may need to enlist additional resources for this endeavor! Looks like this former Catholic School Girl is going to re-engage her relationship with a higher power!
