Ever felt like there “has to be a better way?” I know I sure did. In fact I “bought in” so hard to societies standards that it turns out I was living someone else’s life.
Growing up on that rural hobby farm all I knew was what I was told. Work hard, keep your nose to the grindstone and be grateful you have 3 square meals a day. So I did what I was told.
Wasn’t much but it was enough. When I took the time to look up from the work I was doing it seemed to be what every other blue collar worker in the area was doing so … Must be right.
But then something happened. My brother went off to University. How the hell did that happen? As a sibling I sort of missed the fact my brother was bright and had a 90% average in high school.
Guess he could go to University if he wanted. But if that dumb son of a bitch can get into University… could I?? Almost never thought about it. Nobody in my little rural world went to University.
But how would mom and dad pay for University I wondered. They won’t/can’t my brother told me. They have no money but you can get loans from the government. Made sense to me.
So I went to University … The same one my brother went to. Where else would I go? I usually did what I saw others do or what I was told. That way you didn’t make waves.
But what to do with this University education? Dr. Bill seems to have a nice life and enjoys what he does ….. Maybe I could do what he does? But what really does a chiropractor do? I will ask Dr. Bill.
