"Boredom is the feeling that everything is a waste of time; serenity, that nothing is."
-Thomas Szasz 

I've been trying to settle on some sort of symbol for "serenity" for a new tattoo.  A friend asked if I'm getting it for something to aspire to, and I suppose all of my tattoos are always reminders of things to aspire to or remember/keep close, but the most important reason for this one would be that I for the first time maybe ever, I feel this lovely sense of calm and serenity that I always want to remember.  It's incredibly freeing and euphoric.  I think it will also serve as a good reminder that I was once here and can get back to this when things inevitably get harder as life progresses.  It's all about feeling like you are where you belong.  This comfort and coziness in all that is around you.  

My mom always said when things were right, they aren't so hard...  I guess this is what she meant.  It feels so nice and I think it's deserving of a permanent reminder.

So...  any ideas?  So far I've looked into different flowers, possibly a swan...  Maybe a sloth with sunglasses on?  ;-)  Who knows...
