I’ve spent the last few days deliberating on my word for 2016.
I initially had ‘faith’ and ‘trust’ attach themselves to my mind, but I felt I required a word with more depth. After several days, I had a list of 16 words and then chose 5 from the page that called to me. Still I felt that of them all, ‘faith’ and ‘trust’ were the consistent words tugging at my sleeve.
Then, an epiphany….
My word is anything I want it to be. That is why it’s mine.
The dictionary states that faith is ‘complete trust or confidence in someone or something’, or ‘a strong belief in the doctrines of a religion based on a spiritual conviction rather than truth’. Elements only, of this are my belief.
So, here is what ‘faith’ means for me.
Faith that the challenges I have met have allowed me to develop and recognise a strength and resilience I never realised existed within.
Faith that my experiences have produced an affinity with others that will support their growth and mine.
Faith that the decisions I make for me are for my highest good, whether or not that appears to be the case in the eyes of others.
Faith that what is not meant to be will slip away with grace.
Faith that what is in my best interests will come to me regardless of my possible inability to see it as so.
Faith that when the time is right, it will occur. (Whatever that may be).
Faith that my dreams, goals, ideas and ideals will birth and mature when they are meant to.
Your definition of faith may be quite different from mine, and that is okay. That is the wonder of being an individual.
Blessings to you for your year of 2016.
I have every faith in you 🙏🏻💗
