As a child I was told I was not pretty enough not good enough by the man who raped me as a young girl . I couldn't tell the secrets of this rape I began to write to find my voice . Through this I found a musician and poet Tori Amos who teaches beauty comes from individuality , freedom of expression and love through art and history .
It's through this I was born through my writing and found beauty through pain .
As I grew up I had a ridged family , where something's were not acceptable , some music , tattoos , exc ....
I think the same is true in society today so many people grow up with out their voice , some where along the way some one took it away -
We go by what rules say or magazines say and it's wrong . The most beautiful things come from loving people for who they are . If someone is pointing the finger at you telling you , you are not ok that is not true at all - it's because they don't love who they are .
Let me share some lyrics from Tori Amos read them carefully ok -
Some people live in pain . But it's our job to have joy and to love . I'm tired of hearing , " Amy your 37 why did you get that tattoo " . Ummmm me and everyone else . And why does it matter if I fly to the moon ? Let's ask this question . Am I good parent ? A hard worker ? Yes . So why can't you just love me unconditionally ?
I'm writing this blog for everyone and I hope this post gets shared . It's not just about tattoos you see it's about dreams and being brave and being supportive .
Love each other . When you don't your teaching your children and grandchildren not to love . And your teaching them to not love unconditionally !!!!! Your teaching them to love with terms and conditions !!!!!
It makes my stomach hurt . It makes me sad . You have a dream follow it ! You want to pierce your nose at 80 do it !
This is the love project . I'm writing a book help spread the word and the love . Please share this blog .
