OAP Moet Abebe has shared the story behind an eleventh tattoo she recently got on her arm. The tattoo which says “yesterday will not define me” also has a lotus flower which she says inspires her spiritually.

”Well for quite some time I have been obsessed with all the spiritual symbolisms of “The Lotus Flower”… It is a flower that experiences immaculate conception every day.. Now I have often viewed myself as being similar to a lotus flower as it has a life cycle unlike any other. With its roots based in mud, it submerges every night into murky river water, and undeterred by its dirty environment, it miraculously re-blooms the next morning without residue on its petals.
I know it’s easier said than done; but I have refused to be limited by my “yesterday” … I’m resilient and like the lotus flower I will not be defined by my past or my current situation.. Thank you @boomta2 for this gorge piece of Art ??? and you know I shall be back lol.”
