I’ve learned a life lesson courtesy of having interacted with the jewelry vendor.
It’s a lesson I’m reminded of because on my job I deal with books and people every day.
The life lesson comes after years spent trying to conform by working in cubicles in corporate office jobs.
Mid-life is the time to get this schooling right once and for all. You won’t ever be happy trying to be someone you’re not.
This is a FACT in my book of life:
Taking joy in being who you are is the greatest gift you can give yourself. To be who you are when others don’t want you to be this person takes guts and grit. The glory of being you lasts a lifetime. To squander this gift is the greatest tragedy.
