Getting My Second Piercing Was The Mini Adventure I Didn’t Know I Needed

A few months ago, I decided to get a second ear piercing. I was debating getting one for a while, but it felt more official when my roommate also wanted to get another ear piercing so we could go together.

I only ever had the regular lobe ear piercings, done at a Claire's when I was around nine years old. I hadn't ever thought about getting another until I was watching one of my favorite YouTubers who posted a video about getting a few small, almost delicate looking piercings and I thought about how cute they were! Why hadn't I thought of getting another?

So, I ended up researching the second ear piercings for about a month, just looking up different photos of people with multiple piercings and also watching some more YouTube videos to get people's reactions if they liked it or not.

Then I finally booked the appointment and it was official! I was getting another piercing.

When I got to the tattoo parlor, I was so excited! It was all I could think about the day leading to the appointment. I picked out a pair of earrings, and then the piercer took us all back to the piercing room.

Then five minutes later, my ears had new piercings!

Once I walked out of that room, I felt almost woozy from the adrenaline rush high I felt all day before and during the ear piercing process fade. It was almost a sense of relief and excitement clashing that I did what I said I would and got a new piercing, but it was sad the built-up excitement was finally over. Because for me, it was a fun adventure researching and planning out the day.

This week, I finally got to take out the starter earrings and change up the pair I had in for a few months, and it reminded me of the fun day I had that let me bring excitement and a change into my life, no matter how small it was.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
