Second Best

I have felt pretty down lately I'll be honest. When I'm not doing much of anything else I end up thinking about things way too much, which is a big part of the problem. I always feel like I'm second best. I always feel that I'm not getting to where I want to be. I feel like I am just not cutting it. I feel like I get so close to being the kind of person I really want to be but I never really quite get there. There are so many things I want to do. There is so much that I want to be good at. There are a lot of character traits I want to have. I started to learn guitar but get frustrated when I'm not as good as I want to be as soon as I want to be. I want to get to bed earlier but always get distracted and stay up way too late. I want to not care about things so much and be less hard on myself  but I care about things way too much. I want to stop gossiping, but I always do. I want to be better at my job but then I end up not giving things the attention it needs. I want to take better care of myself and just get lazy. I'm sick of being regretful of the things I should have done but didn't. I want to be happier and feel more achievement in the way I choose to live my day. I want to eliminate the "buts" out of my life. Tomorrow I'm going to take the day however it comes and make the most of it.

  1. oh, my friend, we all feel that way sometimes. i feel that way a lot of times. i wish i had something more encouraging to say, but, the truth is, there really is nothing. this is just something that we all have to figure out on our own. :( just know that this life is a journey, a test and everyday brings new opportunities and new chances to change, to do things differently than you did yesterday, to be better.
