DON'T FREAK OUT.
A, “Learn Love”, tattoo, but I can’t decide where to put it…
This phrase comes from lyrics by Shawn McDonald, “What are you man, if you do not learn love?”. And I though I’ve known it for years, lately it’s been stuck in my head.
Because the truth is, no matter how hard we work or how many jobs we create or how successful 2nd Story Goods becomes…it matters not, if we don’t learn love.
At the end of the day, Love is the matter that shifts things. Not jobs, not food, not successful projects. Love.
So I was thinking about a tattoo, (dont freak out).
If I could just write it on my body somewhere that I would see it constantly. So I don’t forget.
Like every minute of every day, that would help me keep the main thing, the main thing.
And I would remember… but I can’t decide where to put it…
Maybe my fingers? (I’ve heard tattoos on fingers really hurt) (I really don’t like pain)
So in the mean time, I wear this necklace, and in the heat of a discussion, or when I imagine doing something easier than this, I can reach up and grab hold of this reminder.
(dont freak out)
