A Sprinkle of Remembrance

We will not regret our past~nor wish to shut the door on it.

Yesterday, when I was standing on the beach taking photos, the wind was biting cold to me. I didn’t like it at all! My nose began to get cold and I started remembering. I normally don’t mind sharing my memories and telling my story. But for some reason, with this I hesitated. I didn’t want to think about it.

I remember in my past being so cold and not having heat and unable to get warm. It’s the worst feeling. I woke up one morning with snot covering my face. It wasn’t because I didn’t have a job. I did. But when you’re on your own, young, no education, being paid minimum wage, trying to keep a car running, and paying for a child care service with thirty five dollars a month support, it can all be overwhelming.

I didn’t get in that shape on my own.

And more importantly, I didn’t get out of it on my own.

The quote about the climbing fish~Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by it’s ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid~is attributed to Einstein, however, the author is debatable.

Who cares who said it. It sounds true to me. I lived the wrong life for so long.

I never want to be cold like that again. NEVER…………
