Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Here’s the scoop, faith doesn’t have to be scary. It can be but it doesn’t have to be. As a kid, I’d go with the flow with everything. I’d let it all flow to me. I’d leave the worrying to my mother. That’s how it’s supposed to be. As an adult we are not only taught but expected to be worried about everything. I think a little worry is important. And I also think it’s important to be proactive. The difference is constant worry about everything literally destroys our health. High levels of anxiety can have a negative effect on basic decision making skills.

I think we should focus less on worry and more on faith. Faith in God the universe a higher power and faith in humanity. Faith is sharing your burdens.

Imagine being the person someone had faith in by showing up and doing your best. You lifted their burden by showing up.

So faith, what do you think about it?

When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
