I never thought I would get a tattoo in my life. That changed two years ago when I got the quote “I give because I can, not because I wish to receive” in my own handwriting along the inside of my right forearm. It’s a mantra I live my life by, and something I wanted to remind myself of daily.
All too often we can get caught up in the in the expectation of what our actions bring us, instead of allowing ourselves to live fearlessly in the present. It is my belief that giving our best to everything we do without expecting something in return, is the true path to receiving everything it is you desire. Let go of expectations of yourself and others, but strive to achieve standards of excellence because you know you are worth it.
By truly honoring your self-worth and working hard to maintain excellence in all you do, that is when you finally become a Role Model.
