I think this week's prompt from Sally was the most challenging yet. Sally asked us to find "faith," that thing that keeps us believing, and snap a photo.
Lately, though, my thoughts on faith have been leaning toward having faith in myself.
I keep thinking about a quote from Yoda in The Empire Strikes Back: "Do or do not. There is no try."
Sometimes it is not enough to "try." You must "do." I think, in order to "do," we need the faith that we can.
This week, the kiddo was trying to climb a tree in our yard. Until that moment, she had been scared of climbing ... and falling.
She slid down a few times and scratched her knee a bit. I was so proud when she turned back to the tree and tried again.
I heard her say, "I know I can do it." She had faith in herself.
After a few more tries, she made it into the tree all on her own and even jumped down without help. (Can you say, "proud mama"?)
Now, if I can take a lesson from the kiddo and break this brick that's been sitting around. Breaking a brick is part of my upcoming black belt test.
I've been trying for some time. Trying is not enough. I need to find the faith in myself.
Please visit Sally's blog to see where the other participants found faith.
