At the end of October, I was feeling pretty negative about a lot of things. Myself, some of the people around me, where my life was heading.. I wasn't really looking after myself very well, and I was letting things get the better of me. I felt like I needed to shock myself into changing my attitude.
I went to the Old Bookshop (a really cute café/bar near my house) to drink tea, read and doodle. While I was scribbling, I decided that what I needed was to get a tattoo. Probably a little bit silly, and I would always advise thinking these things through before getting something permanently inked into your skin, but in that moment, that's what I felt like I needed.
I booked myself an appointment that afternoon, killed some time with another tea and a delicious sandwich at The Birdcage (which just so happens to be where we're holding our Bloggers' Christmas Tea Party! Are you coming?) and then got me a little tattoo. Now every time I feel those negative feelings creeping back, I look down at my wrist, take a deep breath, and just let it all go.
Do you have any tattoos that help you feel better?
