I wrote in my post ‘to expose me‘, the following –
Now over 8 months later I have realized fellow bloggers are supportive of me and have welcomed me with open arms and appreciate my writings. Because of this I decided to expose myself, my identity, to you my fellow bloggers. But a course I am not doing it all in one post, I still have 3 months to write a post a day.
So I will write a series of posts to expose me – my identify to you and the blogger world.
In today’s post I write the following –
I understand I can repost an old post, but I am not doing that instead I am copying a post into this one; hopefully WP does not mind that. The 78th post I wrote for my blog was titled ‘Salt & Pepper’, and because I had very few followers at that time, it received little exposer. As part of my ‘to expose me’ series, I wanted to copy that post here –
From the hbmag.com –
Added to nearly every savory, maybe some sweet, recipe one can think of, salt and pepper is the standard pair found on any dining table. Seemingly better suited for one another than Barbie and Ken, the two spices met during the 17th century and have been together since.
My salt & pepper have been together for about 20 years – but the salt is taking over the pepper.
I started getting some gray hair in my 30s, just a little and now in my 50s I have quite a bit of gray hair. I have more gray hair than my siblings and they are all older than me and one brother often comments on how much gray hair I have. I respond back ‘I earned every one of them!’ Early on I think I earned the gray hairs with much worrying, stress, anxiety, depression, self-defeating behavior and the negative list goes on. Now the gray hair is increasing and before long I will be totally gray.
disabled-world.com has the following information about gray hair –
Brief Synopsis: Causes of gray hair is not always related to ones age as hair can turn gray as young as teens and range into our late 50s.
“Smokers are 4 times more likely to have gray hair than nonsmokers and smoking has been conclusively linked to accelerated hair loss.”
Ok there it is again, the smoking thing, it causes wrinkles and gray hair! I like my gray hair and am fine with my wrinkles; after all they display to the world who I am – the good, the bad and the ugly. The choices I have made with regards to smoking and other unhealthy behaviors have obviously affected me internally and externally. But they were my choices to make and with no regrets; I will not live with regrets or doubts about decisions.
Currently my hair is what you call ‘Salt & Pepper’ and I think it looks good.
Men look good with ‘Salt & Pepper’ hair; look at George Clooney, Richard Gere and Matt LaBlanc. And there are some beautiful women with ‘Salt & Pepper’ hair; look at Jamie Lee Curtis, Roseanne Barr and Nichelle Nichols.
Here’s to salt & pepper, they may be better suited for one another; but they are also suited well with me.
