Resolve is a powerful antidote to despair. The meaning and direction that bring depth to life rest upon the values and aspirations you treasure. Resolve is what translates your aspirations into reality. ~ Christina Feldman
I’m grateful for this reminder.
There’s a real firmness to resolve. Consulting my dictionary I find several definitions for this word, but my favorite comes from the world of music: “to make progress from dissonance to consonance”. Yes. This feels true. This sense of forward movement from fractured disharmony to alignment. From scattered to focused and clear.
There’s a sense of conviction in resolve that feels like a great relief. I have my share of doubts, floundering, and second guessing. I know it’s a great blessing to be graced by some insight, example, word, or action that shifts me back into conviction. There’s power and energy in conviction that can propel us forward when we have lost our way.
And there’s a sense of renewal and inspiration. A return to the essence of what’s true, to the energy of what wants to happen.
I am grateful for this moment and the opportunity it provides to move back into my center, into my resolve, into my place in this shining world of leaf and stone.
