~I never thought in a million years I'd ever get a tattoo. It was frowned upon in my religious upbringing, and then I just couldn't think of what I'd ever want enough to put on my body, but a couple of days ago, I got 2 of them. (Both obviously very small so let me expound) -
On my left wrist is "11:11", and on my right wrist is: "Prevail". Both of these have deep meaning to me and meant enough (they came to me in a very "un-forced" way and I just knew) to put on me permanently.
11:11 is known as an "angel number", and often a sign of synchronicity to people when they see this number. Many people make a wish when they see 11:11. For me, it's been a very powerful reminder in the last 8 months or so to choose love, and it's been a little sign from the Universe that I'm on the right path and to keep going. I often feel something warm in my heart when I see it.
It also happens to be the number sequence that I associate with the person that I love more than anything in this world. So, it felt right and I'm happy that it will continue to serve as a gentle reminder to choose the divine guidance that the Universe has for me and to always choose LOVE, no matter how hard it may seem.
Prevail is not just the name of my CBD company, but a word that holds great power to me. Recently on my podcast, I asked Kevin Day what it meant to him to "prevail." I loved his answer and I'll just paraphrase. He said that to "prevail" to him meant winning long term. Not just a short term win, but to CONTINUE to show up and to choose excellence and resilience day after day after day.
I love that.
Prevail means to never quit, to get up when you fall, to crawl when that's the only speed you can hold, and to do what it takes no matter what.
Whether my company is around forever or not, "Prevail" will always be a word that I will look at and be inspired by.
