Star light, star bright,
The first star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.
Mother Goose nursery rhyme
How many times have you caught yourself gazing up at the sky on crisp, clear night, silently staring at the almost overwhelming splendor of the countless stars above? In a mere matter of moments, you can almost get lost in the radiant brilliance of the glistening stars dotting the evening sky.
The shining, sparkling, spectacular stars that light up a clear evening sky are too numerous to count, seemingly stretching from here to forever and beyond. Isn't it amazing how a simple act like gazing at the stars overhead can take your breath away, literally leaving you awe-struck and speechless?
"Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars."
When was the last time you got away from the city lights and just gazed at the nighttime sky, enjoying the magnificent brilliance of one of God's most fabulous creations? For most of us, it's been way too long. Oh sure, we know the stars are there; but we can get so caught up in the hustle and the bustle of day to day living that we basically forget to actually take a look for ourselves. And that's not all we tend to forget.
Instead of carving out some time to relax, unwind and consider the endless possibilities that life affords us all, we have a tendency to keep on keeping on. Day after day, we push, plod and plug along, doing what we can to get by. Unknowingly, we miss out on some of life's most magnificent treasures along the way. We are so consumed with making ends meet and trying to hold things together that we forget about the stars shining above.
"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it you will land among the stars."
How about you? Have you forgotten about the stars? And even if you remember they are there, when was the last time you danced among them? That's right, when was the last time you danced with the stars; letting your hair down and dance, dance, danced the night away?
Hey, I'm not talking about literally dancing with the stars. What I am talking about is dancing to the beat of your own drum, living your life on your terms; allowing you to be YOU. I'm talking about taking your God-given talents and forging a lifetime of happiness, contentment and achievement by chasing your own dreams, pursuing your own goals and most importantly, doing it your own way.
"There they stand, the innumerable stars, shining in order like a living hymn, written in light."
Do you shoot for the stars daily or have you just about given up on enjoying the very best life has to offer? Even if you have just about given up and living the life you desire and deserve, it's never too late to turn your life completely around.
Instead of allowing others to dictate what you say, think or do, you need to take charge and MAKE your life everything it could be and should be. Rather than settling for anything less than the very best, why not chose to reach for the moon and stars above, giving life your best shot daily? The moment you finally rid yourself of everything that's been holding you down or holding you back in the past, you set yourself free at long last. Free to explore, free to discover, free to follow your dreams; finally free to dance to your own tune.
God built each of us for top achievement, to dance, boogie and bebop among the stars. We were put here to look up, not down and to look ahead, not behind. Most of all, we were put here to make the most of our moments on earth. And that means putting our star power to work. You've got to set your sights high - as high as the highest stars above. And then put on your favorite music and start dancing your way to the top.
The Bottom Line: When you start dancing with the stars, you begin to see your world in a whole other light.
