My Imaginary Tattoo

If I ever got a tattoo, it would be the word "change" in a small, cool font on my wrist.  I know the capacity to change is within me but sometimes I think an external reminder would help too.  I think it'd be cool to have a permanent directive saying, "Hey you, go, change!"  I'm freaked out by the permanence of tattoos, but I love the irony that change is one of the few permanents in life.  It's one of the few things that applies to a person's whole life in all its stages.

Even though it's terrifying at times, the capacity to change is inspiring.  I can't change others and will only waste energy trying.  But I can change myself if I work at it.  What a liberating thought!
