we are all ‘Stars’….

As I look at the stars in the sky, each one in its place shining as bright as it was meant to, I think of you, me and all of us and I can’t help but think that we are not too different from stars.

Stars don’t collide, they just shine, the entire bunch and there is a lot of them.

We, on the other hand derive pleasure from chasing after the wind, running rat races, keeping up with the Kardashians or Joneses. There seems to be a part of us that thrives on drama or the sugar rush of outdoing someone else for the fun of it, our ego, or just nurture.

Everyone of us has one thing that we do so well at that makes us stars in our own right. If you excel in your space, you are a star; if your space refuses to let you shine, reinvent yourself. The sky is wide enough and the world large enough to take these many stars.

I come from a star studded family, no, we are not celebrities, at least not yet. Our family reunions are always a delight as the stars converge and everyone knows their place in the circle of life.

As I listened to the lyrics of the song from the movie ‘The Prince of Egypt’, I am reminded that, “you can never know a man’s worth by what he builds or buys, you have to look at him through heaven’s eyes”. A part of me believes that as long as you are fulfilling your life’s purpose, you are a ‘Star’ in heaven’s eyes.

Find what you are good at, your life’s purpose or calling. It is something that you enjoy doing naturally, you find that you don’t have to struggle or need a push to do it. Some call it your inner genius, we all have it.

What you do best may not necessarily pay your bills so you may need to fill in the gap with what you do good. But never forget what you do best because therein lies true satisfaction and fulfillment.

There is a star in all of us, it shines bright when we do what we do best……

Here is wishing you the best that life has to offer……

  1. 🌟 all shine in the cloud, yet don’t collide. I wish all humans understand we can all shine in our own spaces without unhealthy competition. Thanks for this piece.

  2. This made me think of my own ‘star studded’ family and appreciate them.

    If only people realized that they are unique stars and no two stars are made the same, then they will perform optimally and shine even brighter.

    Thanks for sharing

    1. There is space in the world for us all to shine. Even though some will shine brighter than others, that should not be a problem. I think the real question to ask is “am I shinning as brightly as I possibly can”, rather than “am I out-shinning everyone around me”? Those are two differing mindsets with very different outcomes. If we all shone together, we can light up the many dark places of the earth! This mindset amplifies the nija saying, “shine your shine and I will shine my shine”! There is not telling what your shine will accomplish!

  3. God has plans for all His creatures, it is the creatures that created unnecessary competitions within themselves, because they refused to ask God to shows them their purpose on Earth. It is just like the diverse gifts of the Holy Spirit: The gift one has might be different to another, and you cannot function where you are not trained.

    1. Indeed! and all the gifts come from the same Holy Spirit. Just as one sky gives enough room for all the stars to shine. Find your spot and shine

  4. Always on point, competing with others makes our focus divided. But we can’t imagine what will become of us if we focus all our minds in doing what we are good at. Time to concentrate and do it better. Thank you for the piece.

    We forget to enjoy our talents most times because there is no financial gratification to it. However, you put it so nicely that it’s important to also feed yourself. Lol.

    Great read bro.

  8. A pleasure to read, the mindset that there is enough out there for everyone is important, we can all win and we can all shine. Continue to encourage everyone around you as their success ultimately will be yours!

  9. You shine your shine, I shine my shine. You cant shine in my place neither will I shine in yours. So please rejoice with me when I am manifesting in my area of great strength while I celebrate you too in yours. We are all stars

  10. The sky is big enough for every star to shine. The sky is so beautiful when many stars are shining. You shine, I shine, We shine and there is no room for collusion.

  11. “Everyone of us has one thing that we do so well at that makes us stars in our own right”- the world would be a better place if everyone had this mindset.

    I believe that when we focus on polishing ourselves and becoming better, we won’t collide with one another or care about whose star is the biggest or brightest.

    The sky will be less beautiful with only one star, regardless of how huge and bright it is.
    I’m starting my day feeling like a star, and unapologetically owning my shine.

  12. If you excel in your own space, you are a star.
    I can’t be you and you can’t be me. We all have our roles to play.
