Latin. Where the English, infinity is derived from.
I took two years of Latin and although it is indeed a dead language, I love it. Latin words are the root of so many English ones, but this is by far my favorite.
I’m getting this tattooed as soon as I can; it’s all I can think about recently.
I’m getting it not because it is the cliche “infinity”, but because the literal translation from Latin to English is “unboundedness.”
Unboundedness. It means a lot to me and I think it will represent a lot for the next part of my life as well.
My parents are not the most open or encouraging people I know and are usually the first to tell me that I can’t do things. Either because they don’t agree with my choices, or because they think I’m not smart or strong or brave or mature enough. Just about everything I do, they have a problem with and are the first people to try and get in the way of my plans.
I love them but, I argue with them on a daily basis and I have to constantly remind myself that yes, I can achieve my goals regardless of what they may say.
I remind myself that I am in fact “unbounded” by their opinions and all other negative opinions about my life choices. I know having that tattooed will be a constant reminder of this to me and will constantly encourage me to achieve my goals because I am unbounded and I can do whatever it is I choose to put my mind to.
