Thank you so so much! I woke up this morning to find I now have 32 followers so hello, welcome and thank you! I know it isn’t much when it’s compared to the big blogs of the World Wide Web but it’s 32 more than I ever expected to have.
The turtle tattoo – all my life I’ve loved turtles and when I was thinking about my tattoo it kept cropping up but I always pushed it to one side. They’re slow and intelligent and occasionally live in water. I don’t know why but I’ve always felt if I had to pick a an animal to aspire to be it would definitely be a turtle. Because of its seemingly wide-eyed, long-lived, carefree attitude the turtle is often thought to be the wisest of souls among the animal kingdom. We would all do well to take this as a lesson and move at our own pace as the turtle does.
Furthermore, the turtle takes its wisdom one day at a time – not reacting, simply accepting and moving on in its natural methods. Again, this is a powerful analogy for humankind, and we would benefit from adopting the same behavior pattern.
So yeah that’s why a turtle.
This morning I’m working on the basis if I don’t get out of bed I can’t eat or exercise so maybe I’ll just lie here all day…
