Wide


"There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the one that you are

capable of living." -Nelson Mandela

I have contemplated my 4th tattoo for a while now. It only took the "I'm an adult and I will prove it" heart with a flower through it permanently on my ankle when I was eighteen to teach me the lesson of patience :)

I am a visual learner. I am the sticky note on the laptop and writing on my hand person. I need to look in your eyes to fully understand and hear you. I felt like I needed the constant reminder of the opportunity that I have been given always in front of me and with me.

What is "one" to me?

-It only takes one breath to change my mood or my view of a situation. Inhale, exhale.

-This one moment, right in front of me, is all that truly matters. Be there.

-I have been given this one life to live to my own personal fullest. Live it.

-I am one with everyone around me. You are not alone.

For me, living a meaningful, passionate life has nothing to do with its length and everything to do with its width. My width involves my beautiful family, close/deep friends & living my life daily around love and fullness instead of fear and lack.

I practice my yoga every day so that the tattoo is more than a surface level stamp. It is integrated into everything that I do: thought, word and action.
