Isn't she lucky...

"Isn't she lucky, this Hollywood girl?
She is so lucky, but why does she cry?
If there's nothing missing in her life
Why do tears come at night?"

I'm so happy that I didn't get discovered earlier in life.  Not to say that I wouldn't have loved to have been a successful actress earlier in life, but now that I'm a Mom - I couldn't imagine being so public.
There is something to be said about the sanctity of privacy.

I don't understand when I watch these reality shows and how it ruins people's lives- we all see it happen and yet, people still sign up to be on them. 

Really, is money worth the flash in the pan and the lack of privacy?  The constant criticism, scrutiny and ownership that the public feels that they are entitled to have.  

I'm happy that I'm just plain old me.
I'm no one special - and yet I'm special enough for my family.
And really, that's all that matters. 
And it's good enough for me.
