Who doesn’t love a star?
Movie-stars charm us… by sparkling high, high up in the sky…
Sports-stars dazzle us… by shining down from millions of miles above…
We often fantasize of become a star…
So how do you become one?
It is important to be so far up… almost near the heavens… to be a star?
I say, certainly not.
I say, you can shine like a star by staying right here, on the ground.
we shine like a star by staying humble when everyone is trying to steal the spotlight.
we shine like a star by being compassionate when being ruthless is the ‘in’ thing.
we shine like a star by being respectful to seniors, when ignoring them is the norm.
We shine like a star for our parents when we make them proud.
We shine like a star when we help our teams on a project.
We shine like a star for our country when you stand up to sing the national anthem.
Yes. Be firmly rooted to the ground, everyday.
And we could shine just like a star.
Or, maybe… even brighter.
