From Brandi Carlile’s song, “I Will.” I had my mom write it out, so this is her handwriting.
“Coming clean means never closing curtains, I just change my scene. Oh, but you know what I mean and I will learn throughout my life to never lean on what will bend”
This tattoo is very, very important to me for a lot of reasons. I think that this is something that everyone needs to live by. I know that a lot of heartache, disappointment, and overall sadness in my life could have been prevented if I had followed these words, so I’m making it a point to start. This tattoo will always be a reminder of that. It also symbolizes my love for music and the relationships I’ve formed, the things I’ve done, and the ways my life has changed for the better because of it. As you can see, I have a scar from the back surgery I had last July. I’ve had pain in my back for years and years, last year being the worst year by far. I think it’s safe to say that without music, it would have been even worse. Plus, Brandi Carlile is, and will always be, my favorite singer/songwriter.
