Regular readers know that I’m a fan of Chinese proverbs
(and the fortune cookies they come encased in).
One of my favourites is
“You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair.”
Sometimes bad things happen – it’s just the way of the world.
But you can dust yourself down and move on, or you can obsess about why it happened in the first place.
It’s so easy to become consumed with the ‘how’ and the ‘why’, rather than ‘what are we gonna do now’?
Failing that, if you don’t want birds nesting in your hair,
shave your head.
Worked for me…
