That wonderful feeling that you don’t know enough.
It’s what keeps you wanting to study and learn.
To strive to always be better today than you were yesterday.
That feeling that you never fit in.
Because you don’t live by rules imposed by the outside.
You’ve got an internal compass of your own and you’ve learned it’s wise to trust it.
And be comfortable with who you are.
That feeling that you’re not the best, and often not even close to the best.
It’s fine, because you’re the best that you could be.
You try, and that’s good enough for you.
That wonderful feeling that you’re quite un-exceptional,
It keeps you living with humility.
Grounded in reality and grateful,
For that one person who sees something special in you.
That feeling of aloneness,
When you’re in the midst of a crowd.
That quiet inside that’s a feeling of comfort,
That you take with you everywhere you go.
The gratitude you feel,
When you look back and can see,
That failure that led you to a better place.
Because you know there’s a place in this world for you,
That life will push you there, whether you want to go there or not,
And you know that acceptance and keeping on trying, will help you settle into ‘your’ place,
