embracing mediocrity

Darling, people just adore mediocrity, she says in that slow deep South, sit on the porch and prolong the syllables till the sun does down when you wonder if she's talking to you or she just learned a new word and likes to listen to herself use it to put people down.

I wonder how many times I've been mediocre in my life and if I spent however many remaining years I had left I could come up with the exact number and, if so, if the counting could be the one thing I was not mediocre at.

Today I am grateful to understand I can always improve and maybe today I can be a better human and who knows about the next and goodgosh a whole year from now and wow, we could have potential we have yet to unwrap.
