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……
