“I got a tattoo and I am getting a divorce.”
As I started to embrace my “next,” I made some choices to embrace my new independent self including getting a tattoo that served as a daily reminder that I was on the right path.
I got the tattoo when I knew divorce would be my path yet I had not told my ex yet. He never wanted me to get a tattoo; quite honestly, I didn’t think I would ever get one. The day after I decided that I would pursue the divorce without hesitation, I had an aha moment and knew exactly what felt right.
