I was listening to music this week and heard the lyric, "I have decided, I have resolved." It's not a new song, but the line stirred my thoughts.

What is the difference between the two? A decision doesn't necessarily carry conviction & can be easily changed. I decide to do a lot of things during the day that don't necessarily have a huge impact on my life.

When I resolve to do something however, it is usually the result of being fed up with a current circumstance or being so desirous of a positive outcome that I am willing to change. It involves hard work (even when I don't feel like it) and keeping my eyes focused on the prize ahead instead of temporary pleasures & relief along the way.
