I love my tattoos.... it caused a little stir when I got my first but, hey, I thought long and hard about them and they mean a lot to me. One of the things certain people say is what about when you get older??? What will they be like??? How will you like them then??? Well have I found the quote for you!!!
..."WELL, I'M GOING TO LOOK AT THEM WELL WORN AND REMEMBER THAT I NEVER CARED ABOUT OTHERS OPINIONS AND DID WHAT I WANTED.
THE BAD THING ABOUT LIFE IS NOT AGING, ITS THAT YOU LIVED AS A SLAVE TRAPPED IN WHAT OTHERS WOULD THINK ABOUT YOU".
This is such a fabulous quote! For me, who has lived a good part of my life worried and concerned about the opinion of others, there came a day when I no longer cared. Life is to be lived honestly and bravely. In lots of ways, I do still care about what others think, and on some level, maybe we should have some type of filter. But, my friends, I no longer live under the stress of whether I make some imaginary grade. I am ME. For the first time in a very long time, I am ME. I feel freedom and a lightness in my heart. Although I have mountains yet to climb, I am doing it as myself, my true self. For the lovely, beautiful people who have stood by me and made this possible (you know who you are), I am forever grateful. Sometimes we need a push to realise we are actually OK the way we are; the way we were always meant to be. Happy days my friends.
