You Don't Have to be a Star to Shine
Tuesday, August 11, 2020
When does ones star begin to sparkle and shine? Do we have to be famous?
Is it somewhere in the constellation millions of miles from where we now stand- as one small glimmer of light?
So far off we can see the shining sparkles expanding across the universe,
but unable to grasp.
If my friend swims out into the depths of the lake, and I wade in ankle deep water, are we not both wet? Is my friend a success because he arrived before me? Or might I swim out to join?
If you recently made the decision to take charge of your life, get healthy and fit, is the lifeguard with the tan and toned body more of a success than what you might become if you learn from his/her example?
Is not each puppy in a litter just as lovable as the chubby little guy who bounced onto your lap and licked your face? What about the small ball of fluff in the far corner, who goes unnoticed; the one they call the runt of the litter? What might he or she become if given a chance?
Is it the first to achieve success the one with the bright star while the rest wish upon the star, not sure we will ever shine?
As a writer, do I look at the authors who have made a career of writing and feel inferior? Or might there be something of value to learn? Did not those famous people start at the same place as you or me?
You need not be a songbird to sing or a bright star to shine. Just believe!
Thanks for stopping by and may you have a stellar kind of day!
