Choosing To Trust, Even If I Am Afraid

"This moment is all that is guaranteed - use it to express the depth of your love and to wipe your slate clean of any resentment you are holding on to. Life is too precious to carry the weight of the past with you! Let it go and start to grow!" -  Jackson Kiddard

This is going to be a quick post, I read this quote by Jackson Kiddard, he always inspires me with his words... I love quotes, especially those quotes that make me ponder and really think...

This very moment in time, is all that we have guaranteed... we cannot go back in the past, no matter how much we wish or dream that we could and the future isn't written. Life is way to short to hold on to any resentments ... forgiveness is the only key that can unlock us and help us to move on. 

So, I have been in a funky and down mood for the last couple of days... I read this quote and made a decision, one that I stopped being afraid for a moment so that I could open my mouth and speak the truth I had inside, even though it could have changed everything and not the way I wanted it to change....

The fear was just that... the fear.  I forgot that fear can be powerful but that trust is even more powerful, we just have to use the trust.  My fear held me back, my trust moved me forward... I am choosing to trust today... even though I am afraid...

I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future


  1. Thank you Inge... I am starting to feel better... I let my fear get the better of me... :)

  2. A wise choice Launna :). And you have so many reasons to trust and be hopeful....The main one being lovely Valentina :), I adore her cute sweet face.

  3. It is very hard sometimes to just let go and trust that things will work out. I am a worrier, so sometimes this is hard for me to do. Sometimes it is the only way to get through a difficult time, though.

  4. Hang in there.
    I wish and pray that it is easier for you to trust others as well.

    Trusting your instinct is good but there are good people out in the world.

    You are a terrific Mom and
    and a terrific friend and a great human being and I am sure people realize that. If they don't they are failing your standards.

  5. Trust is a scary thing, I know all about that. I'm afraid of a lot of things.

  6. Thank you Petronela... I adore my Valentina too...

    I am starting to see in myself what other people are seeing... ;)

  7. Thank you Daisy... it really isn't easy at all but sometimes I just have to let it go, or I will cry all the time... at least I am hopeful :)

  8. Thank you Munir, I am holding on a bit tighter... it was nip and tuck there for a bit... fear is a big bad meanie... I do not want it having any control over me. :)

  9. Thank you Avy... I know it is difficult not to fear change... it is scary... Trust is a hard one but sometimes we have to give it a chance...

    I have seen things change quickly by just trusting a little :)
