A name. A never, ending cycle of a well spent Sunday at church. A lengthy prayer before every. single. meal. And faith, of course- is YOU.
Is it just me or is there such a lack of this ambiguous term “faith” floating all around us? Ah yes- 2017, we are all just little mice scurrying around at millions of meters per second gamboling about without set intentions. Or a defined purpose.
This running and scampering and fidgeting and zooming- why are we programmed to go. Go without hesitation. Certainly, we could blame all of this mumbo- jumbo on our preconceived genetics or biology, but that would be waaayy to simple.
Competition- it’s not just a means for sports anymore. This challenging lifestyle asks you to maintain those 960 followers on Instagram, just uping (is that a word??) your BFF followers. What about your fad 21 day diet? Are you partaking in this tolling, marathon race on your body or for the sole sheen of laughter on your face.
Questions man, hard questions.
My goal for this week is to define + rediscover the meaning of faith in my life. I know with myself I have been crazily wrecking my self by comparison, competing, and insert any other synonymous c word. But, what does faith say about this? Faith begged me to listen to my body. Faith is helping me understand my intuition. Faith is believing in MYSELF + Mr. Higher-Up. So that may mean to fight the insane urge to photoshop pictures of myself for an hour or any means of covering the prized gift which is YOU + I. That may mean rekindling your faith with God or Buddha or whomever that may be to you.
Faith tells us that we are more than a leg or thigh or shoulder or tummy. Faith tells us to banish that, all of that.
While this week I may discontinue hours upon hours of scrolling on the infamous “Gram”, I do this with intention. Because although social media and comparison from scrolling may have temporarily killed our happiness, it won’t forever.
Hey let’s just try to tune in with our body; with faith comes happiness. We all deserve a happiness greater than a few cliche Insta comments on our recent selfie. This happiness comes from within.
I know because-well, faith told me.
