Too much specialness

"It does no good to be special if no one wants your particular manner of specialness."

That's a sentence I just read from the book, Everyone is an Entrepreneur: Selling Economic Self-Determination in a Post-Soviet World by Gregory Diehl

It struck close to home. That's because it has been the story of my life. 

I have no passion for "normal" things. That means everything I am interested in enough to put forth the effort to do is too "special" to be popular, with the result that (almost) no one wants it enough to pay for it.

I'm very grateful for the exceptions who do pay for it-- and if you get anything out of my writing you should thank them, as well.

Over the past several years I've tried to branch out and find something less "special" I can do that more people might want enough to pay for, but with very little success. I'll keep trying, because what else am I going to do?

Anyway, I do recommend the book I mentioned. It has inspired me to try some new things. It gives me new angles to see things from, and maybe it can help me find a way to deal with inflation a little better before the cats starve.

I really, truly appreciate it!
