“A semi colon is used when a writer could have chosen to end their sentence but chose not to. The writer is you and the sentence is your life.” #projectsemicolon
Today I finally got around to getting a tattoo on my body that I’ve wanted for quite some time now – but like everything, I’ve been putting it off.
You may or may not have heard of ‘Project Semicolon. ‘It is an American mental health non profit organisation that primarly functions as an anti-suicide initiative. It was founded in 2013 and aims to present hope and love to those who are struggling with depression, suicide, addiction, self-harm or any kind of mental illness that they are going through. They have been known for encouraging people to tattoo the punctuation mark semicolon (;) onto their bodies as a form of solidarity between people dealing with mental illness…’
Thus, the explanation for my new addition on my body. Not only did I get the semi colon tattooed on my skin but I also got the quote ‘My story isn’t over yet’ and I’m genuinely over the moon with how it looks. It couldn’t be any more perfect (thank you so much, Shaun, at Fleur De Lis). Everything that it represents, everything that I’ve been through, everything that goes through my head on a daily basis… this brings me a great source of comfort and I’m honoured to have such a meaningful tattoo on my body!
I find it admirable that so many people are being immensely courageous and getting the semi colon tattoo on their skin! It’s raising awareness for mental illness and providing a huge source of comfort to others at the same time! It’s just marvellous!
There are not enough words to express how much this tattoo, these words and how much this symbol all me to me.
My story isn’t over yet.
And neither is yours.
All my love.
