Frey Freyday-Faith

(Frey Freyday is simply a bunch of inspirational, motivational and other quotes meant to make you think, reflect, smile, even laugh a bit. Hopefully helpful, useful stuff….)

Sometimes on a day during which nothing seems to happen everything gets way better. You just need a little more time to see the manifestation. Have a little faith. I go to work, The Universe (www.tut.com)

Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.-Martin Luther King, Jr.

Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.-Helen Keller

To be a champ you have to have faith in yourself when no one else will.-Sugar Ray Robinson

Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe.-Voltaire

Faith is not something to grasp, it is a state to grow into.-Mahatma Gandhi

We are twice armed if we fight with faith.-Plato

You’ll see it when you believe it.-Wayne Dyer

You have to believe in yourself.-Sun Tzu

WORD TO LIVE BY:

Faith- \ˈfāths, sometimes ˈfāthz\ – firm belief in something for which there is no proof

If you recall when you were a baby, (if you don’t let me remind you) you had faith in yourself that you could walk. You probably fell a few times but that inner-self of yours (which may or may not be connected directly to something bigger) said that you already knew how to walk, even though you never, ever did walk.

You had lots of enthusiasm and you didn’t look back at your falls. You referenced all of your successes like crawling, grunting, yelling, dancing, climbing, chewing on your fingers – all these were successful references for you which gave you confidence and pride.

You had faith in yourself and the world around you and you just kept moving ahead, taking another step, sometimes falling, always getting up. Eventually, just like you thought you would, you walked, and you ran, and you skipped and you sashayed….it was almost magical right? Here you are, ambulatory.

So here we are many days later. Look at all of those successful references you have had from your past. Good stuff, huh?

So now that you’ve really conquered that walking thing, what are you going to do now?

……Make sure that you tap into that inner-self thing (which may or may not be connected directly to something bigger) and KNOW that you can do it. Like walking, even if you never, ever did it before, have faith that you can do it already, you already know how.

Also remember to have faith in others in this beautiful world of ours.

Sometimes we just have to let go and have faith. When we relax and be ourselves we can do great things.

I have faith that you can do amazing things.

Frey Freyday was actually born out of something I created called Words To Live By”(WTLB).

Going forward, I will now not only share the quotes, as you may be used to receiving, but also a related (WTLB). In 1999, when we had our first daughter, I was contemplating how I would raise my new beautiful child, and I was thinking about how I can best educate her and my other children about values, morals, and other key thoughts about life. School offers education. Religion offers some values and morals. Parents offer most of it, sometimes intentionally,sometimes accidentally.

……So I created a (WTLB) book, like a dictionary, which lists things like honesty, love, persistence, etc. with a definition that I created, with my wife’s input. I then turned it into a workbook with one word per page and space below for notes. For years we would discuss with my two daughters and they would draw pictures and make notes in the blank space. I may share some of those images with you. As they got older, they were less inclined to draw and more open to quotes and references from adults, hence where Frey Freyday came from…
