My Newest Tattoo Addition

I am big on my tattoos with meanings and added some more to my leg that all has meaning. I went to Infinity as I normally do but tried a different artist who has been there a long time and is one of the new co-owners. Love the work she did and the beautiful Lotus she tattooed.

I wanted a Lotus with 3 parts, one bloomed, one not and one opening to signify 3 years on this TBI Journey and my new path in life.

One of the many meanings of a Lotus flower and why I chose it is it grows in muddy waters and comes to bloom into such a beautiful flower. There are so many meanings. Here is one I can identify with.

Rising out of the pain – Just like Lotus flowers rise out of the water, they symbolize fighting against difficulties and persevering through everything difficult in life. You need to try your best to make things happen for you, because nobody else is going to do that for you.

Showered and bandage off. Not healed but shows some of the details.

I am a TBI Survivor and woman who has been through a lot of good and bad. My goal by this blog is to share what I have learned and how life has happened for me and not to me. I have found purpose in it all and am here to share it. I am also sober and quitting drinking was the best choice for me. I will post about TBI, Brain Injury, life, travel, lessons learned and more. I am not a doctor or a nurse, I am a traumatic brain injury survivor who has lived 40 years of life and have an amazing mindset from it all. None of this is medical advice, that is what your doctor is for or 911 if you are having an true emergency and need help right away. I am here for community and to share all I have learned, you never know who it will help. Click on the white title of the blog post to read, just saying in case you might be confused like I am with all this 🤣
