Are you drifting along or running in circles? Walking up a steep incline with slippery soles or on a well-lit path? Forget the New Year’s Resolutions. People make grand gestures of sweeping change that usually falls flat. It’s going to come down to taking baby steps, an almost imperceptible series of motions that must be wrapped in light and positivity. As a former half is glass full thinker (who still has to catch herself) thanks to the discouragement of others I can understand how outside forces really pull at your soul. I had to make a choice to think better so I could do better.
It’s a process that must be repeated and implemented but it works. I had to let go of what I knew to be “true” about certain things and put on a new coat. When I noticed a slight shift it was so encouraging that my heart literally soared. After a period of internment I decided it was time to make a move. I’m still transitioning as I work through all the necessary steps to complete this change. It’s not a process of having everything handed over on a silver platter but one of eyeing little steps as part of a larger goal. That way I’ll always have something to work towards but I’ll have a slew of achievements to look at as I continue on this journey called life.
This blog is titled Acts Of Faith for a reason. I was trying to sort through my own confusion, dissatisfaction and desire for advocacy by writing it down. It’s been amazing to find so many online resources of other intelligent and accomplished women. We have to take a leap of faith in order to have a great life. And we all need love.
