My Daruma Doll Tattoo

My sister asked me what the tattoo meant. If you don’t know, a Daruma doll is something that people use in conjunction with goal setting. You set a goal and when you reach said goal you fill in the other eye (and usually burn the doll). She then asked me about the goal and I wanted to share my answer-

-It’s a less tangible goal than most people set, and more about reaching a better place with my writing and me as a person in general. Not really a “sell x books” but I’ll know when I get there. When I feel I am doing better and creating more and doing so more consistently. When I do fill it I will hopefully keep the motivation and momentum that got me to the point that I felt I reached that goal. I guess it’s a tangible reminder of an intangible idea.
