A police officer’s job revolves around taking leaps of faith every time he/she is in the line of duty. It takes a multitude of qualities to be a police officer in this technologically advanced, unpredictable, brave new world we live in today.
“I want to be bold, and wild and take leaps of faith because that’s the foundation of all we could be.”
The meaning of the word “faith.” as I understand it is a noble and virtuous act characterized by strength of soul and spirit.
For me, “faith” means the same as inner trust and confidence. In other words taking a leap of faith means a personal willingness to take a chance. The most difficult component? Trusting in one’s own strength and ability to handle whatever that leap might bring because, let’s acknowledge it: change can be overwhelming .
On a personal level, I believe in taking chances. I dream of making big changes. while its frightening to leave what’s safe, it’s even more scary to imagine a life unfulfilled.
“Why do you stay in prison when the door is so wide open?” – Rumi
I know my leap of faith might land me in an uncharterd territory but Still I would like to try and take the chance that might land me into my land of dreams. I feel that’s really how I can find the fulfillment of my desires and dreams by taking chances and being bold and not scared to leap ahead.
We can all use a little inspiration as we contemplate acting on our dreams.
