A momento – A keep sake – a gift. What is the point?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Anchoring memories and feelings and a reminder of what was and what can be.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m not one to wear jewelry, don’t have any tattoo’s (yet) but a simple piece of copper wire that got folded into a ring
has quickly become my largest reminder of who I showed up to be in this world.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Love, thoughtfulness, connection without the pretentiousness or expectations.
True contribution for the sake of making someone happy.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Over the last few 6 years i’ve battled with the difference between success and fulfillment.
It has cost me loved ones, often left me feeling alone, tired and unworthy.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Chasing success ultimately means putting your happiness in the hands of others – always measuring and stressing about “achieving”
Fulfillment comes from the inside out – and through that, you can inspire others to live their truth.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Waking up truly happy with the effort you are putting in daily far exceeds trying to externally feel validated through some version of success.
“When I reach XYZ i’ll finally be worth something”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The pressure of trying to be perfect while we are just on a ride of trying to improve ourselves.
Especially with social media and all of us now forced to be influencers, leaders, mothers, fathers, inspirations to the world
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Over the last 2 months i’ve made some radical changes to my life to better myself and get a clean start.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Along the way I cut some of the closest people around me so deeply out of my own stress and insecurity and emotional up and downs.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For that I ask forgiveness – I love you guys and I was just doing my best.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’re not all perfect – but we do need reminders of how we acted / who we were and who we strive to be.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This ring is one of those anchors for me.
Im grateful for the lessons and hold this ring as a reminder of second chances and the ability to change.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Later today i’ll be uploading a video on my take on fulfillment vs success.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Use it as fuel ❤️
