Faith is a knowing that “it”, whatever “it” is, will be. Sometimes faith can be shaky, but when you hit that beam of light in your heart and mind; it’s unshakeable.  For the past week, I have been on Facebook working to gain support for my self-publishing project. It is a big challenge to raise 10,000 dollars in forty days, but not impossible. I am grateful for friends and family who have already backed me because they love me and believe in my project. Yet, before my husband hit that launch button on the Kickstarter site, I believed it would happen, even though the thought that it might not, terrified me. In life, a little terror is unavoidable, and it has always been unavoidable for me. Terror has been a part of everything new I’ve ever attempted because I want to succeed. So this project is a little scary, but so is every leap of faith. You leap not knowing for sure where you will land, with your heart racing, and your soul  focused on that beam of light. If you can just stay in the light, it will happen. Yes, it’s cheesy, but I really believe it. I believe in the words of the old king in Paolo Coehl’s book, The Alchemist when he says to Santiago, “When you want something bad enough, the whole universe conspires to give it to you.”  For the next thirty-three days and beyond, I plan to keep stepping out on faith, and  I’m excited to see how far it takes me.
