Some people have difficulty telling the difference between something great and something they’ve simply heard of.
~Sayuri, Memoirs of a Geisha
One day the people around me will realize that I am not the person they thought I was.
This is my confession.
I feel like an impostor.
I am leading people on and soon they will see the truth.
I am motivated for all the wrong reasons and one day it will ruin me.
I am not great.
I try to be great and I fall just a little short.
One day I will just be “something they’ve simply heard of.”
This is my greatest fear.
*Note: After publishing this entry, I went back to a previous post of mine that I linked to above: It is about why Memoirs of a Geisha is my favorite book. I think if I had read that post before I wrote this post, it may not have been published. The book is so much about personal struggle, and that’s where I am now. That’s where I am everyday. But it has to be worth something, right? Maybe that’s why the book ends the way it does. Maybe that’s why I am currently reading it again.
