Don’t forget, we decide which rules we follow.” Seriously. I could have hugged her, or cried, or screamed out, “of course!”, but instead I scribbled down as much as I could on the back on a receipt and thought how amazing it is that the simplest, most basic truths often have to come to us by way of seemingly common conversation for us to really hear them.
You'll receive a high quality printable PDF which includes a 5x7 and 4x4 version of the print, along with the original backstory that inspired the illustration.
