New Tattoo

So i've been wanting to get another tattoo basically since I got my first one. I've been thinking about it extensively over the last couple days and I have decided exactly what I want. Originally, I wanted to get this Chuck Palahniuk quote: "The only way to find true happiness is to risk being completely cut open". After thinking more about it though, I realized that there was another quote (also CP) that I find to be more meaningful and appropriate for me. Additionally, the quote and the meaning itself made it easy to determine the placement of the tattoo.

This will be the quote that I am getting:

“You have a choice.

Live or die.

Every breath is a choice.

Every minute is a choice.

To be or not to be.”



    I am not sure about the exact font that I want it in yet, but I will have it done on the inside of my upper left arm. It will be below scars that remain from a particularly difficult period of my life. While most of them have faded, there are a couple that will likely remain for a very long time. I feel like i've come a long way from that period of my life, and more importantly, the negative, self-hating mindset that I once had. I think this will be important for me as a reminder of how far i've come, and a positive message if I ever fall that low again.

That's so interesting! You are the second person today who's told me she's getting a new tattoo. Did I know you already had one??
