I have just finished reading a book that I have to tell you about because it has had a most profound impact on me.

The book is called We Are All Weird by Seth Godin and if you are one of those people who have others around you questioning what you do, may I suggest that you read this book because it will make everything "OK"!!!

What impacted me most while I was reading this book was I was never quite sure whether to cack myself laughing or break down and start crying because it seemed to chronicle my whole life to date!!!

There are often times when people around you question your actions and justify their comments to you with something like "We are just worried about you" without realising that the reason you do what you do is simply because you are "wired" in the way that you are - and this book shows you that that's ok.

To all those naysayers out there like - 
  • That teacher who "bollocked" me all those years ago for changing the script in a Snow White And The Seven Dwarves play we did in school (in fact, her exact comment was "You're not playing Dopey, so stop acting like him!!!). 
  • Those people who shook their heads in disbelief when I decided not to go to university because I wanted to find out what the "real world" was like.
  • Others who could not understand why I left the "security" of corporate employment to start my own business.
  • Those who regularly commented that I "Danced to the beat of a different drum" (see Mick - I do remember (at least) some of our conversations at the Richmond Social Club and the old Tarmac Hotel all those years ago!!!! LOL).
I would suggest to you all that you should seriously read We Are All Weird by Seth Godin because then you'll realise that there is no such thing as "normal" so everything I - and others around you - do is ok!!!

I haven't had this good a rant in ages - Gee it feels good!!!! LOL
