And here we have a, shall we say, rather unwilling resident of the Palmetto state. This young lady recently packed up and moved to South Carolina, and was not exactly thrilled about her new locale. One thing that’s helped her adjust? That little bluebird tattoo.
I moved to South Carolina from New Haven, Connecticut. I never liked living in S.C.—actually, quite frankly I hated it. One morning, though, I woke up and saw a different kind of bird in a tree in my back yard. It had a blue back and a bright reddish/orange breast; my dad told me that it was a bluebird. For some reason this one little bird was like a ray of positivity over my heart, and I eventually learned that bluebirds were a sign of good luck. I connected blue birds as my good luck charm and that I will survive living in the bible-belt. I’ll always carry that good luck with me wherever I go.
