Our virtue of the week is 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.
*   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.
