The moment I saw this tattoo it caught my heart in a way that made me gasp.
It belongs to Andy Whitfield the actor who originally starred in Spartacus. There is a documentary coming out about his life and his journey around cancer called Be Here Now.
“Be here now” has become my mantra in the past few weeks. I used it when my Dad was in the hospital recently. I used it just sitting on the couch with my husband. I used it when I have gotten so wrapped up in my thoughts I hardly know where I am. I use it when I am happy. I am use it when I am overwhelmed.
What a reminder – just show up in this present moment. Don’t get caught up in all of your thoughts, stories, future, past. Be here now.
Simply beautiful and probably the great lesson in life.
