Here’s a fool quoting himself:
Take a moment to tip the gravel from your shoes, and walk unencumbered by minor irritants. ~GT
As a kid in Mumbai, I had to stay at a hospital for an operation. My mom stayed with me.
As part of my daily recovery meal, the orderly would bring me a boiled egg. My mom, a vegetarian, had never seen an actual egg, let alone cooked one. It tasted awful and I hated it, but she wanted a quick recovery for me so forced me to eat it. Next day, exasperated at my incessant complaints, she told a nurse that I was being difficult, and begged her to persuade me. The nurse explained to my mom that boiled eggs first needed to be peeled!
After that, I ate them happily, dipped in spicy chutney.
The lesson here, I guess, is that some things in life are better when excessive layers are removed.
May you peel off the things in life that irk you, and enjoy the meat of life.
