For months, even years, I’ve been writing inspirational quotes in my journal. But then I realised, that to get them to stay in my head, they need to become mantras, and in order for that to happen, they need to be in front of me.
In the summer I embarked on a wristband project, where I collected, and kept on my arm, wristbands from events and good times. It worked as an incentive for me to keep having a good time and enjoy life, as well as a spur for further adventures.
I’ve missed that project since I stopped it at the end of September, and I needed something to help to keep pulling me forward. I’d been toying with the idea of having another tattoo on the inside of my wrist. But why put something permanent on there when I can change the message every day if I just write something on in pen instead? So, here we are, welcome to my new wrist motto project.
Today’s mantra was inspired by a conversation I had with my friend at the weekend, when I was catastrophising about the future, and he explained that he just lives day by day in the moment. I listened. I just need to learn.
