I’m Not the Greatest

I’m not the greatest at keeping up with my weekly house chores,

But I’m the best at making my house feel like a home.

I’m not the greatest at remembering dead lines,

But I’m the best at working under pressure.

I’m not the greatest at eating healthy foods,

But I’m the best at choosing the perfect restaurant.

I’m not the greatest at working out,

But I’m the best at finding a million other things to do instead.

I’m not the greatest at controlling my emotions,

But I’m the best at being sincere and true and caring.

I’m not the greatest at using my spare time wisely,

But I’m the best at binging both shows and books.

I’m not the greatest at confrontations,

But I’m the best at stepping up to a challenge.

I’m not the best at choosing my words carefully,

But I’m the best at letting others know what they mean to me.

 

 

This is not the greatest Slice I’ve ever written,

But it is the best that I could do tonight.

  1. Love, love, LOVE! My favorite line, “But I’m the best at being sincere and true and caring.” I couldn’t agree more! I”m so very lucky to have you as a friend ❤

  2. Awwww, I love it. It’s not the best intended that often are the best received. This one is a winner. It’s sweet and honest and fun. Very much sums up that optimistic openness you possess!

  3. I love it! This slice is SO relatable! I laughed out loud (in total agreement and reflection of my own habits) at “finding a million other things to do instead.” Loved it!

  4. This is awesome! I found myself identifying with so many of these. I think it’s great that you’re comfortable sharing something you see as a weakness because you possess something that counteracts it.
