Day 4

"Talent isn't genius, and no amount of energy can make it so.
I want to be great, or nothing."
- Louisa May Alcott

Some things we fall in love with are not always good.
But I think I fell in love with something that is potentially good,
And potentially harmful.

I fell in love with ambition.
I fell in love with being better.
Sometimes though, it is not only better for myself,
But better than others.

It's a love that I love and hate.
But one I am still working on perfecting.
Because love is like that.
It needs perfecting sometimes.

(p.s. Q's Daydream Vintage is doing a Shabby Apple giveaway here.)

I think I've fallen in love with the idea of being in love. You said it best on a previous post. When you wrote that, I thought, "finally someone's been able to verbalize how I've felt."

P.s. I know you've always talked up shabby apple, but last night I finally browsed through their website. I'm in love with their clothes. I can't afford any now but when I can I was wondering do their clothes run close to your actual size? Some places run small so I never know.

I love the things you're in love with. So refreshing.

This is beautiful. Being in love with ambition is not a bad thing unless you make it a bad thing! :) Effort and passion is good.

I feel like that quote pretty much sums up my life. Thank you for sharing that =)

it does need perfecting...and love sometimes could mean that you want to live up to the person/thing's standards...and you run. You forget..who you are!
