What or who do you trust, or depend upon?

What or who do you trust, or depend upon? In this photo, my wife Suze is trusting a thin strand of wire and its connection to a couple of tropical trees to keep her from crashing to the ground. Most of the time it is not as obvious where we are placing our trust. Every time you drive down the highway, you are trusting thousands of people to stay in their own lane, stop at red lights, keep to the right of oncoming traffic (in the United States), and follow a myriad of other conventions.

Perhaps you trust your doctor, your lawyer, your boss - perhaps not. Perhaps you trust in a "Higher Power" - perhaps you don't. Trust is something that we become aware of in unusual situations, such as a once-in-a-lifetime ride on a zip-line, but most of the time, we become oblivious to the trust we have, or don't have.

Take time today, and often, to consciously examine what and who you trust. Especially focus on WHY you do or do not trust something or someone. Blind trust is a bad habit - conscious trust is one of the underpinnings of a great life.
