Resolve

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.
