I wish I was a Super Star


I wish I was a little bit stronger! I wish I was taller! – not original yeah, lyrics to some song I forget the title! 

I do wish I was a super star, the nightlight that reflects upon the sky, neighbouring the big bright moon! Yes, I want to hang with big guns, I am no Chef, I am no Baker!

Will this stop me from trying to be the best as I can be? Never! I have this relentless drive, though hindered by fatigue, that drives me, myself & I completely batty. My folks & children too. They tire themselves helping me live a dream I have yet to  awaken from. 

My folks both God willing close to 66 years & my kids 4 to 24 yrs have always walked my path with me, not forgetting my siblings, only our Lord knows what they see in me- a sister, a leader, a force to be reckoned with, absolutely a force of nature! A soft inner, a strong will,  coated in a resilient tensile steel garment of love,  very powerful against all or any outside forces, not a lapdog kind of love but a seriously driven hardcore energy that ignites my partner’s chagrin, my children’s admiration & many unceasing prayers from my folks & siblings- these human beings know me completely, though wish I would find what I’m searching for….

I’m not perfect, oh I sometimes mess up a recipe don’t ask me why! I know what works, I know what I want to achieve, what palatable morsel will make for a satisfied client, what time frame I need, do I tweak here and there? Yes, often I admit,  and it pays off, all except once when I need it to be perfect!  Then the walls come crushing down and I ask myself : Jennifer how did you possibly mess this up, it’s ridiculous, not possible!!! I talk here about silly mistakes or even trusting enough to sacrifice so much too much. 

Well it happens, it irks me but it happens…

Now I have a question? 

When you make a mistake, how long and to what degree must you be held hostage to this mistake, surely it is miniscule in comparison to say – abuse, theft, immorality, murder, disrespect, indifference, destructive behavior.

Will the intensity of these deliberate actions disappear in the face of my personal dilemmas?
