These beautiful words on my left shoulder are from one of my favorite Blue October songs, “Graceful Dancing.” To me, it signifies overcoming every obstacle, rising above when depression tries to drag me down and living each day as if it might be my last. I got this tattoo (my first) in 2014, one year after I lost my mother. It reminds me a lot of something she used to tell me all the time: “Keep on keeping on.”
I will keep graceful dancing and I will go on until the end. Thank you, Justin Furstenfeld and Blue October, for getting me through the hardest time in my life. Favorite band forever!
