Pretty flowers for a very pretty person!

[] This is a Hibiscus flower, one of my favorites! The grow in tropical areas and come in many pretty colours including: Pink, red, orange, purple, yellow, and even white!. Often the colours are mixed as you see with above.

They can look like wild, like fire.

Or pure, like snow.

When you braid the trunks of several hibiscus trees together, you get a rainbow!

I hope you enjoy these hibiscus as much as I do! <3

Thank you!  I love hibiscus flowers!  We have a tree at home, but it hasn’t bloomed yet this year.  Hope I get to see it’s beautiful red/pink flowers soon.  :3

My therapist suggested last night to think of the positives of my life, and not the negatives.  Meaning, I am not broken - everybody has their burdens to bear.
Most of what I do and who I&#8217;ve become is influenced by my mother.  I guess it could be a good thing that came out of her abandonment - I believe myself to be a caring person and a loyal friend.  Possibly because I did not receive those things as a child (from my mom anyway).  I know I&#8217;m not going to be the same mother to my future children that she was to me, but it also upsets me that her lack of parenting has influenced me so drastically.  I don&#8217;t really care to have her in my life, but she is with me always in how I behave.
As much as I want to close the door that leads to my mother and all the feelings that are associated, I recognize that doing that is not going to help me overall.  Pushing things away and closing doors only leads to more issues down the line.  
Funny - most of this post (with awesome Supernatural community giving me a gif for everything) was going to be about my IC and vulvodynia, not my mother.  But it always comes back around to her in the end I guess.
My body is not broken.  My mind is not broken.  I am in a constant state of growing and maturing.  I may never have a cure for the IC or vulvodynia.  I may always have suffering from my past.  My tattoo means so much more to me now, and I need to remind myself of its meaning from time to time.  It&#8217;s about more than just my struggles with my body, it&#8217;s also about my struggles with my emotions.

I hope this post helps someone else as much as my therapist has been helping me.

"Mr. Moony presents his compliments to Professor Snape and begs him to keep his abnormally large nose out of other people’s business…" can we please talk about the fact that Moony was literally around the corner while the map was insulting Snape. And he 99.99999% knew it was going to happen and he probably laughed himself to sleep that night and whispered a thank you to James, Sirius, and Peter for thinking to put that wonderful little defense mechanism in.
