Something to commemorate my journey
I wanted to do something that would, for me, mark the beginning of the new me.
A couple Sundays ago, I went to a tattoo parlor and go inked. I already had a tattoo from years ago (hidden), but this one is right there for me to see, to remind me.
I realize that even though I will have the band, I will still require making good choices and maybe even some willpower.
I found a tattoo that I liked that said, in Chinese: God give me strength. I wanted it on the inside of my right wrist (my eating hand, lol) to remind me. Sadly they couldn't do that in the small area I wanted (couldn't shrink it down enough), so I went with a simple Chinese symbol: BELIEVE.
I pray that it will help me remember what I am doing, where I am going, and where I came from. It will stare at me every time I pick up a fork or put my hand to my mouth.
I know it's a bit drastic for some, but for me, this commemorates the new me that will come out of this journey.
