So I have a tattoo. I wish I could tell you that I spent hours contemplating this permanent print on my body but the truth is I googled some tattoo designs and just got it done. Why? Because I was unhappy and I desperately needed change in so many aspects of my life.
No one ever expected me to get a tattoo so that’s exactly what I did and it became a catalyst other significant transitions. In the following months I changed my career, home and a number of significant relationships perhaps most importantly the relationship I had with myself.
I put my own happiness and fulfilment first which I hadn’t done for a long time.
Looking after my health was a key part of the process as it gave me a consistent foundation to rely upon as I embarked upon a solo journey of uncertainty, risks and new experiences that at times scared the heck out of me.
If I’m honest I think my tattoo is a bit pants now but I’ve come to love it because it represents me TAKING ACTION.
Now obviously I’m not suggesting you do the same. There are much less painful ways to turn things around and start to lead a life that you truly love, one that challenges you and ultimately brings out the best in you.
