I'm trying something new with my One Little Word this year. I want to keep it in the forefront and so I'm going to share a quote or some thing related to my word each Monday. My word for 2014 is faith. If you're worried I'm going to start preaching to you, fear not. I'm referring to faith in myself and my abilities, in the goodness and possibility of the universe and as the antidote to doubt, anxiety and fear.
I know that my natural state is to worry, to second-guess, to compare and find lack instead of value. I think all these stem from doubt and I want to fight back this year, with faith. I tend to think "why bother" a lot, as it seems sometimes like everyone is already doing all the things I want to be but bigger, better and faster than I possibly could. I think developing some faith in my creativity and focusing on the process rather than the products will hopefully help me outgrow this bad mental habit. I feel like I am at the start of a long journey but I have no idea where I'm going. Faith that something good is ahead through the fog is what I'm choosing to focus on and believe this year.
I know I'm going to need to constantly remind myself and I'm planning on sharing that journey here. If you'd like to share a link to your own OLW post, or share a good faith quote in the comments I'd love to read it.
Thanks for stopping by!
