While I often forget I even have tattoos (honestly, people will ask me what my tattoos mean and it will literally take me a few seconds to realize what they are even talking about), all three of mine have a lot of important meaning behind them.
After being diagnosed with fibromyalgia and finding out I needed to have surgery to put a stent in my brain, I decided I wanted to get a tattoo as a reminder that as hard as this time was in my life, I would get through it. One of my all time favourite quotes is ‘This Too Shall Pass’. It has so much meaning when it comes to my life. I often find myself completely overwhelmed by uncontrollable circumstances, and this quote (which I chose to have written in Hebrew on my right wrist) is an important reminder that I will get through the hard times no matter what.
Anyone who has a tattoo will most likely tell you, they are addicting! After getting my first one, I almost immediately wanted more and started thinking about other meaningful quotes or messages I could have tattooed on my wrists. The first one I chose was ‘Just Breathe’ a reminder that when anxiety hits (as it so often does for me), I need to take some time to regulate and work on my breathing.
My third tattoo was actually inspired by @taylorswift lyrics. ‘Don’t you worry your pretty little mind, people throw rocks at things that shine’ is for me, an incredibly important reminder not to worry what other people think or have to say about you. When you are happy or doing well in life, there will always be people who want to try and bring you down, but it is important to keep your head up and remember who you are.
Do you have any tattoos? If so, what is the meaning behind them? If not, would you consider getting any? What would you want to get? Be sure to let me know in the comments. .
