Everything you need you already have. You are complete right now, you are a whole, total person, not an apprentice person on the way to someplace else. Your completeness must be understood by you and experienced in your thoughts as your own personal reality.  – Wayne Dyer

A strong sense of self.
Belonging to the present.
There’s beauty in truth.
Love of family.


Hello My Dears,

I finally got my fine line botanical tattoo on my left inner forearm. It was an early birthday present courtesy of my coolest husband. I have always loved the natural elegance of botanical flowers, but never knew exactly why.  Then recently, I stumbled across the definition of contemporary botanical art as “belonging to the present moment” and  just knew it was the right time.

Today in my forties, the reason for getting inked is so different. It comes from a place of strength, artistic expression, and a desire to spread love. A way to make my soul visible. The flowers represent my little family, the foundation of my happiness. As Mother Teresa said, if you want to bring happiness to the whole world, go home and love your family. I truly believe the love we have for ourselves and each other will continue to grow and become contagious to those around us. I also got my Ironman mdot touched up as a reminder that “anything is possible” and that I am stronger than I could ever imagine.

A huge shout out to tattoo artist, Will Hardcastle @allyoursoul at Red Shores Tattoo Co.  I had the best experience thanks to Will’s timely responses and patience each step of the way during the design and tattoo session. Thank you for sharing your creative talents and art with the world.

P.S. Stephanie W., I am so glad you texted me Red Shores instagram. You rock.

With gratitude,
Samantha
