  • Several years ago, I went through an extremely difficult year in which everything went wrong. My bank account got hacked into and emptied. I was taking intense college classes and doing terribly. I had no friends or social life. I went through many different challenges, and it was terrible. I felt lonely, insecure and discouraged.

  • That year I also had to make some big decisions that would influence the direction of my life, and I was terrified. I felt so many mixed emotions and continually doubted my ability to succeed and accomplish my goals. I was afraid, and I let fear control my life.

  • Then one day I was reading a spiritual message and a line stood out to me that said, "Fear and faith cannot coexist in our hearts at the same time." Immediately in my mind I responded, "I choose faith." I wrote this down in my journal and it soon became my motto for that year. I repeated it to myself over and over. I made some big decisions and encouraged myself by declaring, "I choose faith."

  • Years have passed since that difficult time in my life, and life keeps getting harder and harder, but "I choose faith" is still my personal motto. I say it to myself ALL the time. When fears creep into my mind I reply back, "I choose faith." When I don't understand why certain things happen I respond, "I choose faith."

  • It works wonders.

  • I hope everyone finds a family or personal motto to guide and encourage through life's ups and downs.
