This is the tattoo that I want. It seems sort of chliché now, considering how many people have been getting the semicolon tattoo lately, but it truly has so much meaning to me. The Semicolon Project has helped me overcome many things.
Because I made the choice to continue my story 13 years ago. I'm glad I did. Because that day I made the choice to finally listen to me. If I would have listened to everyone else I'm sure I wouldn't be here today. But my story continues... ;
“How does one become a butterfly?” ~ Pooh asked pensively. / “You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar,” ~ Piglet replied. / “You mean to die?” asked Pooh. / “Yes and no” he answered. “What looks like you will die, but what’s REALLY you will live on.” ~~~ A.A. Milne
