Ten’s True North 〰️✦❂✷✵✸↟✧〰️
I have been asked about the meaning behind @tens_truenorth by quite a number of people this past year or so. So I guess I better explain.
Ten is a nickname that was given to me 25 years ago by a dear friend. He had been hearing me spell my last name, “Patten”, over and over emphasizing that I had a “ten” at the end of it and NOT a “ton” like General Patton from WWII. One time in his presence I embarrassingly said, “I am a ten, not a ton” and he lost his sh*t laughing at me...and a nickname was born...Ten.
True North is the direction of my moral compass, my intuitive force, my integrity & character; of which are my prized possessions. My Integrity is everything to me and I will protect it in any way possible. The best way to do that is to stay on course towards my True North; and I do. I trust my intuition because I keep myself in check and I check others before I give them my trust. If I trust too easily and the person turns out to not be of good character, I may veer off course due to the Conflict of Integrity.
I did that once and when I found out the truth, it was as if I had flipped upside down. The inner turmoil I went through to get myself right sided to where I could completely trust my intuitive gut was the roughest ride, but so incredibly worth it. During that chapter in the novel of my journey, I recalibrated my compass and vowed to stay on course...towards my True North. 〰️✦❂✷✵✸↟✧〰️
So there it is, the story behind Ten’s True North.

Hungry Tarpon


Anything for the shot, right?! Blood was drawn and knuckles raw after letting my hand get “swallowed” at least eight times for that split second money shot 📷 by @slavetothewave ... Definitely worth it though! •••

• FOCUS
On The Outcome
Not The Obstacle •

Easier said than done at times, but it is crucial to success. As my best friend-my partner-my love says...Gotta have that PMA (Positive Mental Attutude). So true.

Night,
The Beloved.
Night,
When Words Fade
And Things Come Alive.
When The Destructive
Analysis Of
Day Is Done,
And All That Is Truly
Important
Becomes Whole And
Sound Again.
When Man Reassembles His
Fragmentary
Self
And Grows With The
CALM
Of A Tree. -Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
