Remember The Stars

I had a horrible night last night. Nothing happened to bring it on, I just felt terrible. I spent the evening cheering myself up with inspirational stories and decided I'd go and get the tattoo I've been wanting for years, today. So I did!


I got the heart nearly two years ago now, it's very personal and means a lot to me. I've mentioned To Write Love On Her Arms before, and that's basically what it means. They're an organisation offering hope to people suffering with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. You can read more about them here, and also read the story from which I got 'Remember the stars'. It's about how, no matter how crap things seem, we always have hope. Sometimes I need to be reminded of that.
It's hard for me to talk about this actually, I might be studying Psychology but it's very different when it's so personal. Anyway, I just wanted to share my new tattoo with you guys. I'm absolutely in love with it. I got it done by Ricky at Feline Tattooing in Sheffield and they were really good, the highest of recommendations from me!
Hope you guys are all well!
