1800Optimism and Faith
- Nov 1, 2006Sharing this morning, something that I read on a friend's blog. It
expresses how I have felt since discovering my own higher self. And
now I believe Michael J. Fox is my new Guru! LOL He is such a
trooper, I admire him for his strength and honesty.
I don't need to understand God, or what ever.... Michael J. Fox
sums it up pretty clear and simple in this last paragraph! Words to
think about... :-)
Michael J. Fox speaks on optimism and faith!
When you lose things--for example with my acting--I counted so much
on being able to bounce around and do all that physical stuff, which
I can't do now. And so that's a loss. I mourn the lack of pure
spontaneity in my life, the ability to just say "I'm going to do
this--now." But what I found was that if you just kind of relax for
a second and see what comes into that space, something will come
into it. There are no vacuums. And when you see that happen, it's
amazing. So if you are in a place in your life, whether it's
Parkinson's or whatever it is, you can fret about it all you want
but at a certain point, you just have to relax. And that opens all
kinds of doors for you.
Actually, I'm writing a book about optimism. I do believe that there
is some kind of truth, some kind of ideal, and that people feel best
when operating under a set of ethics, as opposed to morals. People
just doing the right thing, treating people the way they'd want to
be treated, being honest, being fair, not being deceptive and not
taking what's not theirs. I know I feel best operating that way, and
so that's my faith.
