“One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.” – Andre Gide


Pursing any goal is a process of discovery. At some point between when we set out and when we arrive we are certain to find our selves discouraged, distracted, or feeling we are way off course.

Here lies the importance of both commitment and community. Commitment is our personal drive to move ahead, to see it through without abandoning our selves or our course. Community is the networks we build to help us complete our task.

Just when you think you are lost revisit these two. In solitude find the voice inside you that drove you forward. In community seek the wisdom and strength of others to show you the way, to remind you what it is that you set out for.
