“I do not pray for success, I ask for faithfulness.”
– Mother Teresa

I have begun taking morning walks. It is a simple thing, but this time alone is a way of centering myself before the business of my day. It is a time to breathe, to think my own thoughts, to simply listen to the birds singing or watch the sun rise over the lake. Sometimes I sit by the lake for a few minutes and breathe it all in.

I feel a deep sense of peace in these moments. I think to myself, I do not know what this new adventure of ours is supposed to look like. I do not know what I need to do to make it work. Yet, somehow I feel we are moving towards the answers. Knowing what the end result will be or how to “make” it work isn’t what we need right now.

As the beautiful quote above points out what we need is faithfulness. Faith in our dreams. Faith in following what feels right in our hearts. It is what we all truly need.

I invite you to take a walk with me…

Dream big dreams, follow your heart & have a beautiful day!
