Spirit can be many things and mean different things to different people. Sometimes it’s religious, sometimes the expression comes from a more alternative faith and sometimes it’s that part of you that is truly you.
This past year i feel like I’ve lost some of my spirit, drowning in regular work and letting myself shrink and instead me (since it’s always you and your choices, even if it might not feel that way) giving space to worries, back issues and stress.
So I decided to let these two (too short) weeks of vacation be a breathing moment to re-connect with me, with who i am and with what spirit is to me.
Part of that was getting two tattoos. Yes that’s right tattoos!
Had thought about it for a long time, having grown up in an era where tattoos meant a very different thing that they do now, when it’s all acceptable and even the latest fashion.
I choose to have Curiosity and Courage being permanently written on the back of my forearms, on word on each arm.
These two words are two of my core values and leading words in my life and I wanted both to remind myself and also to show the world, inspiring me to keep living who i am.
