This post has some "religious" tones - just explaining where I am - I hope it's ok.

I am getting my first not easily hid tattoo today!! I have two now but both are hidden by clothes. This on is going on my left inner forearm. Super excited!!

All my life I have struggled with the word surrender. I have kept my heart hidden. That changed when I met WH and changed even deeper when I got saved. I learned to surrender and learned to love it. During his affair - I stopped surrendering - to him and to God. My inner tiger became the dominant force - protecting my wounded heart.

Over the last year I have struggled so hard to surrender to anything. That changed recently. I finally realized surrender is good but only to those that can actually handle it when a tiger surrenders. That's a huge responsibility and a huge gift - to have a tiger surrender. As of right now, in my life, God is the only one that can handle that.

Long story sorry. My tat is of a tiger with the word surrender as it's shadow. It's like turning a corner for me. I finally realize just how valuable I am and NOBODY gets that inner me unless they can handle it. The tiger WILL protect my surrender. One day - I will surrender to love again but not to anyone who can't handle it - not even WH as he is right now. Maybe it will be WH again, maybe someone new or maybe it will stay just me. Whatever that outcome - no more giving the tamed tiger to assholes who can't handle it.

It's a good day to really begin to move foreward

Sounds awesome!

Here's how to post a picture:

PICTURES: In order to display an image within your post, the image must be hosted on a web server. There are several free hosting services for your images. Here are acouple that you can use:

Once you have your image uploaded or you have found a picture on the internet you want to embed in your post, you can then post your image by right-clicking on your image and selecting "Properties", copying that Address (URL) and then pasting it with the [ img ] at the beginning and [ /img ] at the end of the URL tags.


ETA - I added spaces around the "img" and "/img" in the brackets because it was trying to use the html to post a picture! Take the spaces out to post.
