So I got another tattoo. I got a Native American Medicine Wheel on my right wrist.
It couldn't have been a better time for me to get it. I don't think I can forget that day....
The morning was going well. I woke up, got ready, and left to pick up my friend for class. I was so happy because I was going to get my tattoo done. I don't know why, but I woke up thinking that I shouldn't have gone to class. I had a feeling inside of me that said "Something will happen that involves your car." I thought I was going to get in a car accident so I drove very cautiously. Luckily, I didn't. After my class, my day would go downhill....
I had to jump into the right lane because I feared I was going to hit the car in front because I was tailgating him/her. That was the safe thing to do. As I jump lanes, sure enough I see flashing lights and sirens. So I had to pull my car over and talk to Mr.Sheriff because I was "speeding." Can't argue with cops, right?
My friend had to drive for me because my nerves were shot. After so much going on in my life, that was surely the cherry to my day.
I was hesitant about getting my tattoo after that scene. But I ended up getting it. I knew that I wouldn't do it if I waited. It honestly made me feel a lot better when my session was done.
Knowing that I have this constant reminder to never give up will make me stronger day by day.
If you're wondering what a Native American Medicine Wheel is, let me explain briefly....
A Native American Medicine Wheel is a circle that represents the four directions. Each direction has a powerful representation. North represents our Elders and the color is white; East represents the future and the color is yellow; South represents the present and the color is black; West represents the past and the color is red.
Right now I am in a new chapter of my life and finding out new lessons each day. I am constantly receiving teachings and am blessed with them. This Medicine Wheel is going to symbolize my past teachings, my present teachings, and my future teachings. These teachings will be passed on to future generations to keep our culture stronger.
