When You Believe…

sem·i·co·lon

ˈsemēˌkōlən,ˈsemīˌkōlən/

noun

a punctuation mark (;) indicating a pause, typically between two main clauses, that is more pronounced than that indicated by a comma.

Every tattoo on my body has some personal meaning to it. This is a marking that, unless I have it covered, I will bear for the rest of my life as a message to the world as to what I am about or was going through at the time. This is my newest addition.

As an mental health advocate and survivor of suicidal thoughts and depression I chose the word believe with a semicolon replacing the letter ‘i’.

This tattoo encourages me to bel;eve that things will be better and that this is not the end of my journey.

It’s one thing to just say aloud or to myself that even though times are hard that they will be better and things will be okay. It’s a total difference when you actually bel;eve that things will be better or different.

The bel;ef in a better way is what makes it happen. When you truly bel;eve that you will be okay, you will be. You have to bel;eve.

Entanglement – Review

I found this movie while searching for something to entertain me during one of my insomnia sessions. Thomas Middleditch (HBO’s Silicon Valley) plays his typical awkward, quirky character that he seems to to be typecast as for his entire acting career. The movie is paced rather slowly which, combined with his weird nervousness, makes it hard to find and stay interested. Pass.

Synopsis: While searching for the meaning of his existence, Ben Layten uncovers a family secret that leads him to a woman named Hanna. When Ben and Hanna fall in love, Ben’s life becomes increasingly and strangely complicated. He soon starts to realize that everything is amazingly and incredibly connected — and that the world might just be more inexplicable than he ever imagined.
