“I’ve got friends and family that I respect
When I think I’m too good, they put me in check”

Yes, we should have confidence, and feel joy and pride in what we accomplish. But don’t let it get too far and swell your head, because someone will bust out the embarrassing photos of you in corduroys from the 1970’s and remind you that you are no better than others and remember when you asked Heather out and got laughed at?
We all put our pants on one leg at a time. And remember if they were hand me downs because all is fleeting.
