I've always been a huge lover of the poem Invictus by William Ernest Henley. There were moments where I felt the world was out to get me, (I still have those moments) but would always go back to this poem. It made me feel that I could control whatever was happening...that I was bigger than that. That I could conquer it all. I even get goosebumps and teary eyed whenever I read it. I've been toying with the idea of having the word Invictus tattooed in Script on my inner left wrist.
I had originally planned to get it done when something significant happened in my life. I'm about to self publish a book. The plan was, after selling 1,000 copies/downloads, I would get this done to celebrate what I would deem a success. Unfortunately, life doesn't always work out the way you want it to or dream it would and I may never sell a thousand books. I may not even sell ten books. But as a reminder to myself that I am the only obstacle standing in my way, when My Three Men is released, I will be getting my first tat.
What tattoo do you have that's most meaningful to you or is there something you'd like to have done?
