TRAIN your mind to see the good in every situation. It won't come naturally, you WILL have to work at it, but eventually it will become second nature and you will have joy in your life even when things aren't going your way.
I love the idea of having birds on me somewhere cos I feel like they represent freedom. Feather are beautiful and I love the use of colour. I have seen loads of similar feather to bird tattoos but always in black and white.
