not them

DSC_1378
there are the kind of people who don't have to study at all, don't get nervous for tests, have all the confidence in the world going into a test that they're going to do well, but i'm not one of them.

there are the kind of people who know exactly what they're meant/born/supposed to do with their life (however, i'm increasingly aware of how few of those there are), but i'm not one of them.

there are the kind of people who always have clean rooms and seem to do laundry every single week without fail, but i'm not one of them.

there are the kind of people who go on a lovely jog when the first sunny day pokes its head through the montana clouds that are stubborn as heck and don't lay in the grass after downing an ice cream cone, but i'm not one of them.

there are the kind of people who are seemingly perpetually tan, or become so at the drop of a hat, but i'm definitely not one of them.

there are the kind of people who can write short stories under 35 pages that are concise with a few awesome sub-plots that connect well with the main plot and end with the right amount of questions left unanswered and the right ones answered, but i'm not one of them (i like to find the small details in everything).

there are the kind of people who just seem like they can glide through life being handed every amazing opportunity ever without ever really failing at anything, but i'm not one of them. the kind that 'have it all together', but i really don't and i think maybe that's okay for now.

there are the kind of people who fall in love easily and frequently like it ain't no thang and can say so without wanting to pull their hair out or die at the thought, but i'm not one of them.

there are those kind of people but let me tell you, i'm realizing at nearly twenty years old that i really and finally like being my own kind of person in every silly and not-so-silly regard.

What a great post! I know just what you mean. I'm starting to really like myself just the way I am. I'm not perfect, but neither is anyone else besides Jesus, and I wouldn't want to be anyone but myself. :D

Awesome! At 47 I'm 'not them' either. :o) Never will be and that's fully okay with me too.

Hope you have a great Friday and a beautiful weekend!

Who IS like all that though?! They would definitely be perfect, and no one is!

it's hard to accept sometimes, but i'm getting there too!
