Unfaltering Faith and Other Things…

I’ve probably put this quote in previous posts, but doing some morning reflection on my drive to work made me think of it some more. One of my favorite quotes is by George Seaton, “Faith is believing in things when common sense tells you not to.” When most people look, read, or hear that quote they don’t know how to interpret it. Myself included. It seems pretty simple to understand, but actually applying it in your life is a whole other story.
My interpretation of the quote is that regardless of whether or not every nerve in your body is telling you not to do something, you do it. You follow your heart. Why? Because you believe in yourself, your decisions, and your capabilities to accomplish whatever it is you may be trying to accomplish or to succeed in whatever it is you may be trying to excel in.
“If people saw the world for what it truly is. Saw their lives for what they truly are. Without dreams or illusions. I don’t believe they could offer the first reason why they should not elect to die as soon as possible.”
-Tommy Lee Jones
This quote was taken from the movie The Sunset Limited. If you haven’t seen it, see it. No action and takes place in one room, but amazing dialog. This quote got me thinking as well… It’s the perception of reality that we have in our minds that which gives us hope. It’s all about having a purpose and what keeps me waking up in the mornings are my dreams. My dreams and hopes to get where I want to be in life.
I wish I could write some more and put to words the thoughts running through my head, but I’m having a difficult time expressing myself. Just a few things I wanted to share, though.
