Let me start by letting you know that the list is never ending. The list of things I want. I might as well be honest about it. What’s the point of this diary in digital form if it’s not raw or real? The things I want to wear, the makeup I want to try, the trip I want to take, the list goes on and on. I’m sure that to some that sounds superficial or selfish, but when the feeling of satisfaction is so rare in one’s life it can actually be a good thing. Of course it makes my shopping list much longer than most but it also keeps me from settling for anything less than the best. The best people: the best friends, the best members of my family, the best guys. I will always want the best. In every category of life. Or at least I hope so. The option of settling for anything less comes along daily, but what a sad story that would make. The girl who settled because she stopped believing. I refuse to be that girl. I believe that I deserve the best and you should too. If you don’t believe that you deserve the best, why should anyone feel the need to give you the best version of themselves?
I tried to think of 3 things (like I did last week) that I currently want the most. Out of all the dresses, all the shiny shoes what do I want the most right now? And as I tried to narrow it down and choose my top three to share these words kept crossing my mind “the best.” That’s what I want. So I do apologize if what you wanted was to find a list of sexy shoes and bronzer. I’ll have those next week. I had to write this. Mostly because I find the thought of channeling anger through exercise exhausting. And since I can't write lyrics like T Swift can, I turn to SometimeSaturday. I can’t share any details beyond what I've written thus far. The only one who hears those stories is my grandma. She laughs, and when she’s done laughing she will always ask “now, is he a college graduate?”
Be the best. You deserve the best. Settle for nothing less. Oh and get the shoes. Always get the shoes.
