my graduation present


I’ve been planning to get this since the beginning of the year. This is a much different year than I anticipated.

My graduation present to myself (funded in part by grad money, thank you Ralee, Erik, Barb, Andi, Jim, and Jesse) was a tattoo that acknowledged what my time at Adler meant to me. Grad school changed my life in many ways, and studying Alfred Adler was an extra blessing.

As a recovering perfectionist, this concept was especially meaningful to me.  I don’t have to be perfect, I just need to do my best. It relates to every part of my life.
