…life tip from Master Gallacher – be your own best in the world at everything!

…the sensible parents among you will understand that exhorting your children to be top of their school class, or best sports activities participant is the dumbest Rallying Call of every misguided father and mother on the planet… your wee Jimmys and Nellies frequently struggle just to know how to tie their shoelaces by themselves… my approach to nurturing ‘successful’ offspring is a tad different, and always has been… it is simply this, – ‘Papa does not want you to bust your guts trying to be the best in your class… neither does he expect you to set new school records for the 1000-, 500-, 250-, 0r even 5-metre races… all I ask is for you to try your honest best…’…that same tenet holds for just about everybody I have ever met… with a slight finessing of the language…

…I say, and seriously advise them, ‘be your own best in the world at everything… in your own mind, in your own attitude, in your own belief in your own skills, talent, and brains…’ …that way it is impossible to fail… I do it for myself… I am the best singer in my own world… I am the best footballer in my own world… I am the best author in my own world… I am the best guitar player in my own world… I am the best lover in my own world… I am the best blogger in my own world… I am the best poet in my own world and so on, and so on… I have never failed yet in any of these ambitions… and in my own world, no-one can refute my own belief… sound crazy?… maybe… but let me assure you, it works for me… and I’ll guarantee it works for each and every one of you, too… try it… you ARE the best at anything you do in your own world... see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!

…okay, published the autobiography… time to start the rest of my life!

…I’ve never been big on ‘bucket lists’… but I do like to have continual things in mind that I wanna do… some of you will be aware that I’ve just published my memoir, STRANGELY, I’M STILL HERE… and I’m delighted for many reasons:

  1. It had been nagging at my scribbler’s conscience for a year, to get on and do it… now that it’s taken care of… it feels good…
  2. The love and support from the global writers’ community has been amazing… thank you, each and every one of you…
  3. Other authors will understand just how much of a buzz it is to see any genre of our wee literary babies creep high into the respective ratings, this time for Biographies and Author Autobiographies...
  4. Already, in a mere three days since it appeared first on Auntie Amazon Kindle, it has sparked phone calls from friends with whom I haven’t had the pleasure of talking for years (not months, but years!)… what a blast…
  5. The cathartic process of getting stuff out of my system, some of which has lurked in the shadows of my psyche for far too long, was a spiritual breath of fresh air…
  6. Being able to look back with that wondrous 20/20 hindsight that time provides, I’m able to understand just how much and, conversely, how little of my life, and what happened to me, could have been impacted by myself, and how much of it was karma… right place, right time, and vice versa in various instances…
  7. A tremendous appreciation for the people who were placed in my life at pivotal, cross-road points, and without whose presence and intercession, I probably would not be alive now…
  8.  A reinforcement of my gratitude for the relationship I enjoy with the God of my understanding, which liaison brooks no interference from anyone else, and makes no demands of me to attempt to proselytise other people…

And, most importantly, I know that I’m not done yet... part two of my life begins right now… the memoir can be found on the Amazon universal link below… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!
