~For Chris and David

I lost my fiance’, Chris Raynor, in a car accident on our wedding day on September 12, 2009.
I lost my brother, David Taylor, to suicide on December 28, 2016.

I chose the lotus flower and semicolon because I’m trying to live and grow in the muddy water. Some days are better than others, and just as the lotus flower closes at night…it opens the next day with a fresh start. I chose to get the semicolon because I respect, empathize, and honor those who suffer from mental illness…including myself…and each day I will try to continue my sentence. I chose to put my tattoo on my left wrist to be visible for others who are struggling and because the left is closest to my heart.
