I firmly believe God doesn’t make junk and he doesn’t make mistakes.
Having faith in YOURSELF as well as in a higher power is the goal when you’re going through a hard time.
I didn’t ever ask: “Why me?” I thought: “OK so this happened. What am I supposed to do now?”
Find your purpose and go do that. Seek to be your own version of well. Embrace the struggle and remember that today is what it is and tomorrow can be different.
The most beautiful thing is for all of us to be alive in the world. To live in synch with our personalities and as Oprah Winfrey wrote in her magazine: “to use your personality to do your soul’s work.”
Life can get better. It can truly get better as you get older.
You don’t have to go to church by the way if that doesn’t suit you. You can go out and be in nature. You can volunteer at a soup kitchen.
Having faith can be as original as you are.
I turned away from organized religion after the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11. I chose to have a Christian life in word and deed. Not by warming a chair in a pew and pretending I agreed with the Catholic church’s views on women and LGBT members.
If going to church is your thing, more power to you.
Having faith can make the difference between achieving goals and remaining on the sidelines in your own life.
The Zen quote tells us:
Leap, and the net will appear.
