It’s not about what you do. It never was and it never will. I would not make this about you, but I can’t, because it is. Honestly speaking, there are some things you need to know, and if no one is brave enough to tell you, then I will. I have no problem highlighting your flaws and faults, but no matter what I consider to be bad, people always find something good. I know your potential and I’ve tried to trip you up on so many occasions, but it amazes me how you’ve yet to fall. I don’t understand it. Why do you have to have it all? You’re smart, brilliant, funny and everyone seems to love you, except for me! In fact, there isn’t one thing about you that I find intriguing, yet so many others are in awe. All I ever hear is, “You’re this” and “You’re that”, when you’re nothing at all……at least to me you aren’t. In their eyes you can do no wrong, but in mine, you are just not right! I can’t stand the attention you get, but most importantly, I can’t stand the fact that I am not you!

Has anyone told you how incredibly unique you are? You possess something that so many people want, but don’t have. No matter how hard they try, they’ll never have what you do, because you’re distinct and they’re desperate!

Until next time my NOTE takers!

You got it made

In 11 days I’ll be 35 and over the past 6 days

I experienced firsthand what it meant to “live”

I was scared, to say the least, because it was something

I hadn’t done in forever

Due to the life I “lead”, others may differ,

but it’s only because “they’re out” and “i’m in”

Spectators are funny, yet so fortunate, because they feel as though

they have the worst view, when indeed they have the best

My “glamourous” life has obstructed them from my truth, and honestly,

it’s the best protection they’ll ever receive (you’re welcome)

Admiration is one of the finest compliments you can pay me,

but there’s no amount of money you can “pay me” to be envious of me

Remember, I know what’s really going on

You only think you do

To be fair, there are some areas of my life that are doing well

and I’ve come a long way from where I started

but those few areas will never compensate for the s***load of things I lack

Thanks, but I’m not your #goals, especially when I’m still trying to conqueror mine

You’ve gotta be careful “clicking” and “liking” what you see

because the things that social media can’t display

are the very things you don’t want (and neither do I)

So, the next time you wish for my life, just STOP and thank God for your own!

Besides, compared to me, “you got it made”!

Until next time my NOTE takers!

Writefully yours,
