I recently, well not that recently, got a new tattoo and my friend asked me what it meant. I remember telling her that I will write a post and I never did it.
Today is the day that I explain the meaning of my new tattoo, my friend-this one is for you.
The biggest element is The Arrow.
Now, an arrow can only move forward by being pulled backwards. This mean to say that when life is pulling you back with trials and tribulation, focus on what is in front of you and aim for that. You are being launched and prepared for something so much greater.
I had a few tribulations in the last two years, but how my life have changed for the better is amazing. The arrow is there to remind me that I am on my way to cooler places.
I had to go look up the definition of this symbol. I had no idea what it stand for or what it mean. In my tattoo it is just the body of the arrow. No meaning at all. I liked the pattern.
As for interest sake, this is what I found.

“The symbol is a representation of reaching enlightenment. The path starts in the centre and as you continue down this path you are wandering , becoming more conscious of your surroundings. When you reach the top of the symbol (the straight line), you have reached enlightenment.”
Well, I guess we can wing it. I am on my way to enlightenment.
The semicolon is used when an author could have ended the sentence but decided to keep going. In this case you are the author and the sentence is your life.
This plays a huge role in my life. I am surrounded by family and friends (me included) who suffers from Depression. I was diagnosed in January 2016 after almost ending my life. You can not explain this to anyone. This is part of my tattoo to remind me that I went on. I made the decision to get help. This is also to create awareness and people around the world are getting the tattoo for that purpose. I am strong and my story is far from over.
The Feather Tassel
I don’t have to elaborate a lot on this, cause there is one verse in the Bible that will explain it beautifully. I put my trust in the Lord.
