A word I both love and hate.

I hate it because it means I’ve lost control…

I love it because it gives me an excuse.

I have an excuse for bad behavior and unkept promises and miserable mornings.

All ways to avoid doing my best while comparing myself to legends.

But it all comes down to fear.

Aren’t you afraid your best isn’t enough?
