When did the diamonds leave your bones?

I needed a pick me up again, and I got it.

I went to Six Feet Under tattoo parlor to see when I can schedule a touch up for my tattoos. During the process, I got talked into contemplating getting a tattoo before I leave to Japan (that will be another post.) I know, it's crazy but money wise it makes sense.

He remembered me from when I came in to get my first tattoo. We talked about several things besides tattoos but what I remembered what he told me was:
"don't let anyone hold you back. you have the world at your fingertips. you're a beautiful and intelligent young lady, you can do whatever you want. it's other people that tell you otherwise"
I'll admit, that really got to me. I probably would have started to tear up but I kept my composure, didn't want him to realize how fucked up I really was lol.

Tattoos always make me feel better. I literally got out of work feeling like shit randomly and remembered I wanted to go to the parlor to get information. Little did I know, that I would have a great conversation that would leave me feeling inspired and confident.

You need pick me ups every now and then. You need to meet new people who've been places and think differently. Being stuck in the same place with the same kind of people really takes a tole on your mindset.

I know I said it before but it's true. It's all about mindset, I need to keep my head up. Remind myself that this is temporary and that I have big things coming ahead.
