Monday's Mantra
I’ve been thinking about this week’s mantra for a few weeks now. I guess it needs some explanation, since it might be misleading to some people.When I say to have faith, I don’t necessarily mean faith in God. 

I guess I just find that having faith in something is better than having no faith at all. For me, at least.This can mean having faith in yourself, in your family or friends, in your dreams and passions, or in a higher being. 

Having faith in something, knowing that there is someone or something out there who believes in you too, can be the difference between finding peace in what you do and constantly worrying about…everything. 

There are times when I am so overwhelmed and stressed that I wonder if I can do it, or if it’s actually worth the time and effort. But then I slap myself back to reality and remind myself that I can do it. I can do anything, as long as I do it with passion and integrity. I have faith in myself.


P.S. Did you see my mini blog makeover? Let me know what you think!

P.P.S. Have you heard this yet? Love. So much.

I might have just gone back and saved a bunch of your mantras to my laptop. Obsessed?! Possibly, yes.

"Peace" has been my mantra this year. And faith certainly goes hand in hand with that!

Could not agree more!!
Personally, I am religious, but that's just me! I've always thought 'faith' in any form is important :)
