I've got a simple message for you today. Go love on someone. For me, I've never in my life felt more whole than when I've given the entirety of myself to someone or some thing. In a slump? Feeling drained? Give. Feel as if you've always given and never received? We are still called to love... to give then, be it even a smile to a stranger. We are called to live on the tipping point of insanity and peace and somewhere along that highline will we discover that what we are searching for all along never came from what we thought. Somewhere along that ridge are we granted perspective when we can see it all... Just love. #notestoself #nyc #inkedfingers
