"Hope rises like a Phoenix from the ashes of shattered dreams." The Phoenix's symbolic meaning has become something very personal to me over the last few years.
This tattoo was finished tonight and I don't yet have words to form yet for what it means to me. I cried a little on the way home because... I did it, I put my doubts aside and decided I was going to get this. (I mean yeah, I'm raw. Two 6 hour sessions, on your ribs, with color. Hard AF guys - but that's not why the tears welled up.) I have not "arrived" - I have so much more of myself to work on. I will never be perfect, I can always be more like Jesus's love.
But I thought about not posting this...ridiculous. Fear is a liar. If you don't think tattoos are godly, don't think showing this skin is appropriate, that I shouldn't spend my extra paycheck this month on a tattoo instead of putting it in savings, wonder what it will look like in 30 years or language offends you... just move along, no need to keep reading or comment. I will not explain myself on these topics. Trust me, I know some of you are cringing - I love you. But if I am going to get something this badass on my body, I will share it .
My journey is far from over and I cannot wait to see the adventures ahead as I continue everyday to make the choice to rise up from the ashes of my broken dreams.
Will you are amazing. Thank you so much for shaping my thoughts into something so beautiful. It's so much more than I had anticipated 💕
