With (the American) Thanksgiving just a few short weeks away, I thought I would do something about being thankful.
Yes, I am very thankful. Thankful for my family, my friends, for who I am now (stress the now), hell, thankful for just being alive! Thankful from where I came and where I am going.
For those wondering, the tattoo is a variation of the Sign of Chaos, something I got when I was in a rather dark period of my life. Instead of the original intention of chaotic thoughts/feelings in all the cardinal directions, it now serves as a daily reminder that I made it out and continue to be the best David I can be! 😀 Yes, those are a few scars, I am also a “cutter”. Now that’s a devil which I have to deal with daily. Do I hide them? Hell no, I am proud of who I am and more importantly, the hell that I climbed out of! I never hide any of them and will always talk to anyone about them if I am ever asked (surprisingly, not asked very often)!
Be thankful for what you have, for what you had and, of course, have fun and….enjoy!
