{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.


possible, as opposed to actual: the potential uses of nuclearenergy.
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.
