“Eat your crusts they’ll make your hair curly.” It was a useless piece of advice I heard so often as I grew up. My hair was naturally curly; why would I want more of it?
I think it was an example of my parent’s divertissement in life, seeking entertainment wherever they could. Weird as it seems their insistence on eating my crusts has stayed with me into older age.
We lived in the country, and it was a distance to travel to a large city. The clatter of the city has stayed with me. To be surrounded by constant noise always bothered me as at times I wished it would quit and give not just me a rest but the clatter itself.
But life has left me willing to take the upper hand whenever I can. It’s been about taking advantage of situations when I can like I believe when opportunity comes your way why not grab it and then later worry about how you might achieve.
I’ve learned that to reach any heights in life, it’s useless to cozen your way and to bedevil your way through life only results in a growing army of enemies and heartache for yourself.
So being yourself and accepting who you are is the height of self-discovery, never useless, but holding you in good stead.
