I have loved this quote from Sylvia Plath since I first heard it almost ten years ago. It’s stuck with me this long, now it’ll stick with me forever.
Remember, remember, this is now, and now, and now. Live it, feel it, cling to it. I want to become acutely aware of all I’ve taken for granted.

"A lifetime is not long enough"- Sylvia Plath
This tattoo is just a reminder that self harm is not an option anymore- that my life is so valuable and precious, so I shouldn’t waste my time on hurting myself in any way.
