When your expectations aren’t what you expected…

Show of hands, who has ever been disappointed by an expectation you had, that totally did not go the way you envisioned?  If your hand isn’t raised right now, then you are either in a public place, or thought that was a rhetorical request (same girl, same).  At one point or another, I’m sure everyone has had a moment in their life where they’ve thought to themself, “I didn’t see my life going this way.”  Or maybe something a long the lines of, “I thought I would’ve completed this by now, I thought I would’ve been farther along than that by now”.  Have you ever thought that maybe that expectation you had was actually a fantasy or a completely unrealistic thought you set yourself up for?

When you get a tattoo, but don’t handle it like a boss…

Fun Fact about me:  I can be a little dramatic/extra sometimes.  Okay, maybe a lot of the time.  But one thing is sure, I always make myself laugh.  A lot of those times I’m laughing at myself.

A year ago, I got a tattoo and recorded my reaction. And I’m so glad I did because it was too funny with how ridiculous I was acting.

Back Story behind the tattoo:

  • I know, I know. All that commotion for a little tattoo the size of a peanut M&M.  Hey, in my defense it had been a while since my last tattoo and I don’t deal with pain well.
  • This was actually my second tattoo I got (surprise Dad!).  It’s a lot smaller than my first and in a better location (less painful). However, you probably couldn’t tell that from my reaction.
  • I love crosses, love Jesus, and had been wanting to get a small cross on my foot for a while. Shoutout to Pinterest, where I got the inspiration.
  • I went with my best friend Ashley to get this tattoo, and she is the one who I told to “hold my hand”.  
  • I went to the same place where I got my first tattoo, but once again didn’t plan or schedule an appointment. I just showed up after dinner one Saturday evening and was like ‘hey can I get tatted up?’
  • I’m a believer in, “If you can’t laugh at yourself, what can you laugh at?”
