I’ve been told I have a gift. I actually don’t think that’s true. What I have been blessed with though is a series of formative environments and experiences that have developed a special set of skills and knack for communicating clear solutions. That’s it, plus a joke or two.
All of this started at a very young age. I honestly don’t know how many of my childhood experiences my parents purposefully engineered versus how many I just got myself into. My sisters turned out normal (by normal I mean they were teachers and are now stay at home mothers like our mom) but by and large would have been exposed to the same things as me. So, I have to think I’m the Oddball.
