Faith or Fear?

Faith or fear? The choice is yours!

I’ve always been one to let things flow. Time is always been a good way to help deal with stress and sort complicated decisions. Allowing time to pass helps create a way for information to cool down. Being able to approach the situation more informed. In turn, let’s the contemplating and solution building to begin. The faith I’m talking about is an overall faith that good things will happen over time. If you put good work into help people, and have positive energy, overtime you’ll be rewarded for that. I have faith in that!

Here are a few of definitions…

  1. Confidence or trust in a person or thing and
  2. Belief in anything, as a code of ethics, standards of merit.
  3. Taking a step into the unknown with the level of risk and uncertainty

I think it’s important to separate faith from religion just for the pure fact that one does not need the other. Now, there are people out there that need to have something to believe in. And that is absolutely cool. That’s why the concept of religion is there. Some people need that structure.

Faith leads you towards hope. And hope is the belief that you will find the desired outcome in the future.

After Cancer…

you are now in a weird state of life. Possibly unsure of the direction you want to go or struggling to understand your purpose. When you are faced with your mortality, it makes you question just about every other aspect of your life up to that moment.

All I knew at the time right before my diagnosis was cancer was a death sentence. That was the end. Death was all that you could look forward to.The stigma of treatment sounded worse off than just dying from the disease. That day that I was officially diagnosed was the heaviest day of my life. I was looking out the window at the Saint Anthony’s Hospital overlooking Sloan lake. My family was around me when the news was delivered. And that’s when I knew had a choice, To live or Die! Faith or Fear!

I chose Faith in Life!
