A Faithful Path

In my personal understanding of “faith”, I think of complete dependability in someone or something. I do not think faith is something that can simply be chosen during random happenstance. It emerges and comes forth in dire experiences or situations where hope’s source is external. During my own time of need, I was able to find faith in the nurses helping my mom through advice and personal bonding. At times, hardships in life can seem so negative. Yet, with faith, adversity allows for change and room for one to grow.
During my sophomore year in high school my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was hard to accept and the feeling was unsettling. Finding out that my mom was a victim of cancer shook the ground, and I had to find a stable spot to stand. In this time of need, I was able to turn to the nurses working in the oncology building. Spending several hours a day there with my mom, I interacted many times with the nurses. I found their passion for healing others intriguing. I was able to find faith in their ability to help others in a way that could not be achieved otherwise.
If I could teach everyone in the world one thing, it would be that keeping faith can lead to success. Because of this lesson, my mother is now a breast cancer survivor. Keeping a positive mindset on the dependability you have in others can spread to create a new, healthy environment embellished in faith.
