Watching the cricket on the television last night got me thinking about my topic for today’s blog. As a mother we make decisions and react to situations and sometimes it may not be the way you would have reacted or decided in hindsight. I have made decisions and reacted to situations that with hindsight I wish I had done differently but you can’t change what has gone before.
Have you made decisions or reacted to a situation and wished later that you had done it differently?
In recent years tattoos seem to have become very popular. I’m not sure why but they are certainly far more visible than they used to be. At one time it was generally only sailors or manual labourers who were the exponents of tattoo art or those from a society where tattoo art was part of the culture. I’m thinking of Maoris for example.
I still can’t get used to the idea of seeing one of the Australian cricket team with a full arm tattoo. To me a small discreet tattoo is fine but to completely cover your arm seems to be taking it a bit far. I realise that it is personal preference and it is just a decision to adorn one’s body in another way. Some might question why I have my ears pierced. Again it is personal preference.
You can show the tattoo when you wear your hair up but it can be covered up when your hair is down. Suits all situations.
My daughter has a tattoo but it is in pink ink so you can hardly see it. I can cope with that but I wish I had reacted differently when I first saw it. I thought it still had to be coloured in. I’m really glad it is just pink. Love you Fi.
