Recently I took a fun new year’s quiz from my girlfriend. One of the questions was – “What Do You Fear?” My response was nothing. I thought about my answer and yes, I have no fear because I have faith.
I believe having faith is not about walking around blind. I strive to live a conscious life with purpose. With my cancer journey, I researched to arm myself with knowledge and the ability to participate in my treatment and not just accept whatever the doctors said. When I went for a second opinion I asked questions and requested the numbers and facts. The doctors were surprised and responded that I was unusual because most patients don’t want to know. Not me, I am engaged and responsible for my life and health. I choose to participate with faith, not fear.
Having faith frees us to live our lives to the fullest. One of my favorite quotes and questions are, “What Would You Do if You Weren’t Afraid?”
Food for thought.
