    i have an ankh, the symbol of the life cycle, tattooed over my heart to remind me that we always have to live with and for love. the thing i've always known i wanted beyond anything else, career, hobbies, things like that, was to love and be loved. not big into phrase tattoos but if i were to get one it'd be "Be happy, we're worth more broken" from Broken for You by Stephanie Kallos
