There is something to be said for making promises. Especially to oneself. You have to know there is a balance between telling the world for accountability’s sake and just telling the world to say something.

Always anxious for ours to be gardens of love, productivity, passion, compassion and growth, we move toward bigger, better, badass knowing that this life is many things; but, it is not easy.
