Before and After

Today I got my first tattoo. I'm totally in love with it and can't wait to get the next one I have designed for the other wrist.

Of course, 'create', for me is about my loving of making things. This is a such a huge part of my life, making things with my hands and my heart, hell I even create for a living. But more then that, this is to remind me of an important lesson I've been learning...

I have to create the life I want to live.

It doesn't happen by magic, or by wishing. And being sorry for myself that things aren't how I want them to be won't help either. If I want something, I need to make it happen. I can be who I want to be, if I support, love and trust in myself. This is my reminder that everyday I am making my life the way I want it to be.
