My hands represent where I’ve been and what I’ve been through, who I’ve encountered and who I’ve touched; physically and figuratively. There are no better pictures, diagrams, or representation than the trace of my actual hands, to describe my reflection of life. My hands have flaws; they aren’t perfect but my hands do good everyday. Everyday I try to use my hands to pay it forward… And they’re flawed. Isn’t that somewhat poetic?

My hands have wiped away the tears that I’ve shed through hardships, heartbreak and much more. My hands have held others while they experienced the same things.

My hands are Pennino hands; part of my DNA – a representation of who created me – my mother and father.

My hands have made promises to my friends, held glasses of champagne while celebrating a new year, clapped while congratulating our friends and family who have embarked on new journeys, and so much more.

One of the most significant key words in my life as of now is, success. The amazing thing about this word – it has over seven billion different definitions. Much like the word life; everyone will describe it differently. It’s all about what you make of it – what it takes to get there, through the ups and downs, good and bad.

My hands are always working on my goals, dipping into each project with all things considered; my flaws, family, friendships, and all the lessons I’ve learned up until today.

My hands create the endless opportunities to succeed at my goals within everything I put my mind to. Whether it’s creating a business plan for my coffee shop, horseback riding, creating this blog, starting a movement, whatever it may be – my hands and yours too, do SO much.

Have you ever thought of that?

Take a second to look at your palms, reflect, realize just how much they do, and how often people take them for granted.

My hands are the best representation of my life, at this very moment and I couldn’t think of any better way to put it.


All that you must do, you’ve already done.

Let everything else be what you want to do.

Thats what I want,
