Believe when it is beyond reason to believe

Today I wanted to take the opportunity to scatter a bit of faith amongst the doubt.  Traditionally the phrase above can be contributed to faith, faith is believing when it is beyond reason to believe.

Faith does not equal religion per se, though it can.  I stand by the idea that faith has to start with believing in one's self.  

Recognising that regardless whether or not destiny and fate are prescribed or already written, nothing is in stone and we cannot know what the end of our life story is.  

We stand side by side with all the other women in the world and we are equal, we are all women.

We still control the choices that we make, what happens as a result of the choices is somewhat more of a fuzzy area, but right now, right here Carpe Diem - we should seize the moment with both hands and make that conscious decision to do, whatever it is we need to do.  

How we find the strength to do that has to start inside, then we can slowly reinforce and fortify that with religion, friends and other influences around us.

I wrote this some time ago from T.S. Eliot and I shall post it here again today: "I said to my soul, be still and wait without hope, for hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love, for love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith, but the faith and the love are all in the waiting"
