I’m so insanely happy in this moment and time, it’s astounding.
Everything seemed to fall into place today.
At home, with the tattoo, and everything else.
To explain the tattoo. It’s a Fluer Di Lis.
It’s a symbol of one of the strongest women in the world, Saint Joan of Arc. She was a martyr. She was killed at 19 years young, after a trial where she was deemed guilty and later found innocent. Before her trial, however. She led the French to some astounding victories in battle. She was strong, powerful, and a beautiful individual. She was a living symbol of Freedom, and how any battle can be won, at any age, with a strong amount of determination. It took her years to gain the faith of the French, and in doing so she was later deemed a Saint. The Fleur Di Lis was the symbol on her flag she carried into battle. It’s actually a type of flower, The Iris.
4 years ago today I got this & 3 years ago I never saw you again, you left me homeless, you left me for dead. I am so proud of what I overcome and I don’t regret what it stands for. I also thank the cosmic universe for how shitty yours came out and that I’m told you look at it with constant remorse. I said I would feel the same about it with or without you. I’m sorry you couldn’t do the same.
She’s so perfect.
