Thoughts on Mediocrity

Perhaps my work day was just super relaxed today, but I'm feeling quite content. My job can be overwhelming at times (it's no fun to take the blame for the shortcomings of others on a daily basis). However, I live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and I'm madly in love with someone that fits me like no other. We share great times and a great living space. I'm not making near as much money as I'd like to be, but I get by easily. I am sincerely grateful that I even have a job in this economy. These concepts remind me of something I wrote a couple of years back in my journal. I was young and dependent, but I think I was on to something-


As the saying goes
Nothing gold can stay
Well maybe it truly can't.
But what about silver?
What if you have something good
Not great, not always flawless
But something satisfactory with minimal errors.
Who's to say you can't love that something?
That mediocre piece of your life
That you've come to depend on...to cherish.
Why can't that stay?
It wasn't gold, so why did it leave?
To tell you the truth,
I prefer silver to gold anyway.
