Virtue of the Week: Trust

Trust is having faith in someone or something. It is a positive attitude about life. You are confident that the right thing will happen without trying to control it or make it happen.

Even when difficult things happen, trust helps us to find the gift or lesson in it.

You are practicing trust when you:

• Believe there is some good in everything that happens,

• Look for the lessons in painful experiences,

• Let trust take away your worries,

• Know that your best is good enough,

• Trust others unless you have good reasons not to, and

• Don’t nag, worry, or try to take control.

Affirmation:

I am trusting. I have no need to control others. I release fear and worry. I feel at peace and know I am not alone.

The Family Connection was established in 2005 by the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands as an early-childhood initiative. The mission of TFC is to strengthen the community child care and early education infrastructure in the USVI by building awareness of the importance of early learning and development for success and working with community agencies to promote quality care and education.

One of its efforts is the Virtues Project, an international initiative focused on building peaceful and caring communities.

The Source supports the Virtues Project. We will publish one of the virtues developed by the project each week.
