A Leap of Faith by: Dr. Jamil Sayegh, NMD
There are truly only two emotions: Love and Fear.
When two people love each other, fear ceases to be important. Why? Because love is about jumping. Taking a leap of faith. The very statement ‘falling in love‘ implies a surrendering to. Acknowledging that even though you might get hurt, the reward is infinitely better and absolutely worth the risk. Being scared to death and charging in anyway. In the presence of love the blazing fire of fear is put out. And if you give it your all, if you pour your heart and soul out and things don’t work out…what then? You find the courage to do it over and over again for as long as it takes. As the poet Rumi says, “You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens.” You learn from your mistakes and have gratitude for this opportunity to grow. Remember that who you are today is a result of everything you’ve been through; the good and the bad. In fact, the so called ‘bad’ experiences have allowed you to experience the ‘good’ ones. So, were they really that bad? Or, were they actually blessings in disguise? Every situation has molded you into the masterpiece that you are (and YOU are).
Live your life so that if you had the option to do it all over again nothing would change.
Don’t close yourself off in an attempt to protect your heart, because you are only protecting it from yourself. Staying in your self-created ‘cage’ prevents you from ever truly connecting with others.
Blocking pain from entering your life at the expense of losing the possibility of love is a trade you NEVER want to make.
You might have to be in a few relationships before you find the relationship that’s perfect for you; to grow and develop into the person you need to be before you meet your ‘one.’ But that will never happen if you’re too afraid to give life another try. Hesitation and fear lead to missed opportunities.
How many beautiful opportunities are you missing out on because you’ve failed to see what’s right in front of you?
If you have someone wonderful in your life do everything you can to make that relationship blossom. Don’t wait! People only tend to miss something once they’ve lost it. Then they see the value of what they had and regret sinks in. Today, tell that special someone how you really feel. Today, decide to banish fear from your life. Today, be open to the possibility of love all around you. Today, be open and vulnerable enough to be yourself no matter the cost, and understand that life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you. Everything happens for a reason, and each encounter you experience is a gift allowing you to become more of who you really are. You will grow through what you go through and come out stronger than ever. “Life is short. Break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile.”
