Today I am comforted... to starkly know the essence of the word, commitment I have profoundly learned in the process of healing.
I was in a lose-lose situation many years ago. Due to my stubborn nature, I acceded to what was wrong and compromised in the process. Looking back, I am grateful that I allowed myself to be in that moment and witnessed the unfolding of many beautiful memories and realizations that will forever be part of my past.

What have you committed to lately?
