I LOVE my new ink! My artist did a huge touch up on the portrait of my horse that was already on my back. It was a cover up so it needed a "second coat." She added my double rainbow and cloud scene above my girl. (The night my horse died there was a double rainbow in the sky.)
I also had her put Let go. Be on my left wrist.
Some people don't like tattoos, my mom is one of them, but I love them. I now have an even dozen. I still need a little more done on my back, but that will come at a later date. I can completely cover them if I need to, so I can look as "conservative" as I need to.
It is interesting to see how we are judged. We are judged on how big we are, how fit we are, how old we are and also if we have any tattoos. I am treated much differently, at times, if my tattoos are showing than when they aren't. The best is when someone knows me and THEN sees all my ink. It's a surprise, but then they realize it's still me.
I think it's the same when we meet people that are on their "health journey." Some judge and then realize how great the person is...bigger or smaller, healthy or unhealthy. Some never bother to get to know the other person and then I say, "Oh well, their loss." We all need to realize that each of us are on our own journey, of some kind, and we need to accept others for who they are. They may not be the person that we think they should be, but that's not for us to judge.
It reminds me of a quote that I still have a hard time accepting, "What others think of me is none of my business." It's really true and I think many of us try too hard to make everyone like us. We need to be more concerned about loving ourselves and be our own person! I will live by my quote, "Let go. Be"
We are all
and we are ALL beautiful...in our own unique way! Take today and try to see only the positive about others!
