The fourth and final thing that will help me you US make the rest the best is choosing to live by faith and NOT by fear.
Now, when I re-read this, I realized that I wrote " Not faith in so much "what" but rather in "who" and "why" and that sounds a little off. What I believe is that if you have faith in the "who" and the "why" than naturally, the "what" will happen.
Let me throw myself under the bus to give you an example that I have shared before.
I don't like leaving home.
I mean, I am good with going to work at the school, always up for a trip to Target, love getting to be at the Joy Factory once a week and feel really in the right place driving on to campus at Saddleback....
I think, or at least I am starting to realize that I don't like leaving home when I am going teach what my "gifts and talents"are. I don't like leaving what I "think" is my safe zone. I don't like being away from where I feel safe. I am a homebody, whatever that really is.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE to teach, love to get out and meet the amazing creative souls from all over and love to be connected to those who love to create, but getting up and out causes a whole lotta anxiety and fear for me, which spills out onto my family and messes up my purpose.
and yep, I know who causes all of that anxiety and fear...
and it ain't God.
so I CANT LET FEAR WIN. (either can you)
and I will continue to keep on working at this with my super shield of FAITH. (insert lightning bolt and thunder sounds) By choosing faith over fear, I will succeed in anything I do, regardless of the outcome.
By choosing faith over fear, I will keep growing & learning,
By choosing faith over fear, I will become stronger and more confident...
and who doesn't want that?
