What’s That?

This week, my granddaughter (19) showed us her most recent independent purchase – a tattoo.  Admittedly, I am not a fan of tattoos, but I do understand the significance and meaning often attached to them.  Hers was no exception.

The inscription forever emblazoned on her forearm is simply: I > ⬆⬇ :

She explained that this represents “I am greater than the highs and lows (ups and downs) as my life moves forward.”  I was relieved that it wasn’t something that she would be looking to remove in a few years but would be meaningful to her along whatever path life leads her.

The more I thought about this, the more it resonated with me.  We may not be the cause of or have control over terrorist attacks, rioting, Covid-19, political unrest, and everyday life challenges, but how we react to them can make a difference.  Inner strength, unswerving faith, and a smile on your face will go a long way toward being better able to live life to its fullest.
