Resolve - firm determination to do something

I’ve been feeling incredibly determined lately.  Determined to be the best coach, the best wife, the best step-mom, the best business owner I can possibly be.

All that determination creates a bit of self-imposed stress, but I think in the end it will all be worth it.  At the end of my life, I want to leave a legacy.

When my mom passed, I learned the importance of legacy.  As a professional dancer, she had the opportunity to touch lives all over the world.  At her funeral, I heard story after story of my mother’s impact:  how she brought _________ to Christ, how she taught __________ how to love herself, how she personified grace and perseverance, how intensely she loved her kids.  Impact.

My resolve is strong.  I will live a life of purpose.
