Sunday Scribblings "Nearly There"

Sunday Scribblings prompt site asks us to write about nearly enough.
It is Wednesday night here in the land of Oz, hump day, on the downward slide towards the weekend and next week's Sunday Scribblings prompt again.
Ah well, here I am.
I have been thinking about this little idea for a while and I think I can fit it into this weeks prompt.

Nearly..... but not quite there.
Not pretty enough
ugly enough
smart enough
dumb enough
talkative enough
quiet enough
funny enough
serious enough
rich enough
thin enough
early enough
late enough
big enough
little enough
kind enough
quick enough
patient enough
sexy enough
never enough
nearly but
not enough.

Love Linda

Boy, I can relate to this post! We're terribly hard on ourselves, aren't we? You pegged it.

Thanks for leaving such a sweet comment on My Blog !

Hi Linda ~~ Great post which shows we are never satisfied with what we
have. Well done. Thanks for dropping by for a visit and enjoying it.
Take care, my friend, Love, Merle.

I love this poem. I think we all feel like this at some point.

Great list of human inperfections. I love that live gives us endless chances to get things right . . . enough.
