Thankful Thursday - Fear vs Faith

"Don't let fear stop you from trying new things. Believe in yourself. Do what you love. And most importantly, be kind to others." Stacy London

Rules I try to live by. Rules that empower me to live strong.

Someone once told me the opposite of fear is faith. They told me to picture a negative and positive magnet and then try to bring the two together. It's impossible, b/c they repel each other. They said no one can walk in fear and faith at the same time b/c they're like a negative and positive.You got to choose one. 

I choose faith. Faith moves me forward. Faith makes me brave and teaches me to be kind. Grateful for......

-faith that makes me stand tall and strong. I used to be a coward afraid to do anything, afraid to speak up for myself. Faith made the difference. Faith made me strong.
-faith that showed me how to love even people who hurt me. I used to want them to suffer and hurt the same way they hurt me. Faith changed that. It helped me forgive and let go.
-faith that helped me love me, and believe in myself. Sometimes I think this is too easy and too good. Now I think of it like turning on a light touch and light dispels darkness. 
-faith that's an incredible gift that really does keep on giving. 
Happy Thursday, Guys.

Another inspirational post, Nikki. Faith can move mountains and baby steps can become a marathon when faith is behind it. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day.
