TATTOO I ACTUALLY GOT IN MEMORY OF MY FRIEND

  1. This weekend, I finally did it.
  2. It says "braver."
    As in "braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."
  3. I love it.
  4. A few years ago, I got a tattoo in memory of another friend.
  5. It's a bird of paradise.
  6. It took me about two years post-death to get each of them.
  7. I found it very healing to get the bird of paradise, and hope that "braver" will be similar.
    I highly recommend it as part of the grieving process.
  8. But I hope it's a long long time before I feel like I need another.
