MAY YOU FIND YOUR OWN WAY TO RECOVERY…ITs Ok

By |December 12th, 2014|

I just read a blog on TWLOHA & it triggered some words that came flowing out of my fingers. Ok so i'm very passionate about tattoos. It's the type of subject you don't want to bring up if you only got a few minutes on your watch. Probably the main reason this blog spoke to me is because i realize that i'd probably wouldn't be here today if both of my tattoos never had seen the day. Many of you might already know the story behind the ITs Ok project. Here it is for those who are new here. The it's ok vibe started out by being words i'd scribble on my arm daily & repetitively to remind myself that it was ok. It's gonna be Ok. I was so lost in despair & heart broken i needed something to help me focus on the positive state of mind. At one point i got it tattooed so i would never forget that ITs Ok. It's when i got it permenantly inked that something amazing happened & i learnt one of my greatest lesson's. I was not just a harmful person. I was also able to do good & inspire others by simply being me. In fact, the AHAH moment was understanding that I was actually responsible of the energy i surround myself with & that i choose to spread around. And that's how ITs Ok project came to see the day. With a simple word graphically written on my arm & an intention to help others by spreading the ITs Ok vibe in their lives. But my full arm also has it's own story. It was one of the things that helped me get back on track & find [...]

SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE EVERYDAY…ITs Ok!

Someone wrote on facebook the other day '' I just recieved the most important paper of my life. I have suceeded!'' . This triggered some reflections: Yes papers & scholarships & diplomas are great! I invite everyone to feed their souls, to learn new skills everyday & to achieve their wildest dreams. But I find there's a fine line that can easly lead us to a dead end. The idea of striving for a paper can be a dangerous thing if we put all our happiness eggs in the same basket. Success is an abstract concept. Because society tends to want to define us, our accomplishments and our success with papers, boxes, & chekmarks. Or tell us that we got to go to university or college to have a successfull life. In fact, the greatest thing i learnd in university is that I didn't need that paper to succeed in my own life. All along the way the true meaning of life tends to be forgotten. I think in the end what's really important is to take the path that we choose to live. To put an approval stamp on ourselves as a reminder that we don't need other's approval to be in peace with who we are & to be fulfilled. All the other knowledge & stamps we get along this journey is just a cherry on top of our aliveness ice cream sunday! These words came to me as i was thinking to myself that the most important paper i have is probably my birth certificate…  THE MOST IMPORTANT PAPER I HAVE IS THE ONE THAT SAYS 'HI YOU ARE ALIVE!'. Then again we don't really need a paper to remind us that we [...]
