Doubt stops us, Faith empowers us. Growing up in small town Texas, I learned a few things early on.
(1) Being different was a liability and boy was I different!
(2) I wasn’t drawn to the same things as the other kids, and
(3) I just “knew” things which caused me to avoid most drama thus most social interaction.
So, it was a pretty isolated way to grow up. Though I did have a few close friends and I was very involved in singing (I Love to sing!) and was on the track and cross country team. But I always felt very separate from others, even in my family, because of my different outlook and insights I had of the world through a combination of my intuition and a voracious appetite for reading any and all books I could get my hands on 😊
As I matured into adulthood, the cumulative interactions in my life added up to feeling very alone and isolated. I knew deep down that there must be answers to the questions that seemed to be calling out from the core of my being, “Who am I?” “What should I be doing with my life?” “Where do I belong in the world, what’s my part in all of this?” “Where is MY tribe?” After losing hope that I would find these answers I resigned myself to an office job staring at spreadsheets for 8-10 hours a day.
But then... something completely unexpected happened. I experienced a spontaneous spiritual awakening and gradually regained faith in life, but most importantly in myself!! Now, 10 years after that awakening experience I get up every day and give deep gratitude for having found my life purpose, and the opportunities to serve myself and others to create peaceful, beautiful lives grounded in positively impacting others and our planet. Faith in myself, faith in my intuition, faith in my unique life purpose and faith in the power of love tying all of this and us together has allowed me to go from living in 100% doubt and complete uncertainty, anxiety and deep depression to living an extraordinary life.
I encourage you to embrace your differences and have Faith that you will be shown the way. If you ever want to talk about it, I’m here and just reach out.
Love 💕 Beth
