Why Settle For a Simple Life?

I have never really ever been a settler... and why would I?! From as long as I can remember I wanted the best of everything. I wanted the best life... and with that in mind, I still do. Second best was and never will be an option! Why settle for anything when you know you can do better?!

So, basically in a nutshell, I have NEVER wanted a simple life. B*@#ocks to the simple life! Don't get me wrong, sometimes it’s nice to take a back seat, just for a bit because we all need some chill time. Just recently though I've noticed myself in situations that have made me question why I won’t settle. 

You could say, some just make do and accept things for the way they are. Does my way of thinking and wanting this better life make me greedy? Does it make me a selfish person? Have I gone completely pot crazy if I'm still chasing a dream that won’t come true? Or will it?! Am I just that spoilt, who’s parents promised them the world and I still want to believe I'm still a little girl who hasn’t quite realised yet I can’t have it all? Will I still keep chasing this dream in years to come? The questions are endless.

Honestly, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a materialistic girl! I love fashion so of course I want the best shoes and bags. But deep down, it’s an ambition thing. It’s a sense of achievement. 
Obviously, each person's definition of the best is different. Everyone has their own standards and we have to be respectful of that. Just because your goals aren't the same as someone elses we don't have to apologies for that. Since becoming a parent I have a lot more self belief, but along with it also comes a lot of self doubt. You could say I like things to be perfect. 

I never wanted a simple life. in the words of Roosevelt "Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain and difficulty". I don’t see how if your being the best version of you and being the best you can, whatever the best may be, how can that ever be a bad thing? 

You should never let anyone dull your sparkle or make you feel you should hold back based on what others think about you.
