“Busy, busy, busy” is a quote from Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle. It’s “what Bokononists whisper whenever we think of how complicated and unpredictable the machinery of life really is.” I’m 23 and have fibromyalgia for 3 years. I’ve felt sorry for myself…I’ve been angry and sad and defeated. Life is unpredictable, but it’s the only one we have. So even if we’re not where we think we should be or in pain or things don’t go according to plan, accept the things you can’t control and be strong enough to keep trying for the things you desire. Also, the significance of the placement is it is down my “pain line” (the area that causes me the most pain is a “line” starting at my lower back through my hips down my thighs).

Might have blogged this a long time ago, but I love it because it’s not a typical Vonnegut tattoo. And it’s beautiful.
