{my potential}


i've been told, because haven't we all, that i have great potential. i've been told to look for the potential in everything and to not dismiss things and people too quick, because they, too, might have potential.


po·ten·tial

[puh-ten-shuhl]  
adjective
1.
possible, as opposed to actual: the potential uses of nuclearenergy.
2.
capable of being or becoming: a potential danger to safety.


i think that i have done a fantastic job of taking what i've been told and applying it directly to my life. when i'm laying in bed at night, i think about the potential robbers hiding in the hollyhocks in the backyard. when the house creaks, i think of the potential grizzly bears hiding in the dining room upstairs. and when i have a day like today, i think about all that potential i have to not get everything done that i need to and quite fail everyone i possibly could all at once.


i'm not complaining, i think i'll make everything happen that needs to. i'd just like this opportunity to say that i'm deliriously happy that i'm not a brain surgeon, or an architect or even a grocer--anybody that people rely on for their basic needs. because i have a lot of potential.
