So when I saw this picture I thought of … well … stars.
What if each picture hanging was a star?
What if each picture was representative of some wish, or dream, that came true?
What if each star above us represents some ‘moment’ in Life glittering above us to remind us?
What a nice thought.
What if the stars in the skies are wishes yet to be and wishes redeemed?
If that was ever a reason to take a minute and look at the stars on occasion that should compel us all to look upwards on occasion.
Back in 2012 I wrote something that began ‘stars are special things.’
In that post I mentioned the power of star gazing.
In this post maybe I am suggesting you can actually build your own starry night sky
I mean … what the hell … most of us are not astronomers and most of us do not have telescopes and I imagine an even fewer of us actually count all the stars in the sky.
So how do we know that each time we take a mental picture of a moment that another star isn’t added to our night sky?
Practically speaking I imagine that sounds silly.
But from an empowering Life perspective? Shit. It sounds anything but silly.
It sounds … well … fucking good.
It sounds … well … like I own a part of the night sky.
It sounds … well … like every night I can look up and my life makes up part of the beauty of that which is a starry night sky.
I like the thought.
I like the thought that every moment we take a mental picture we hang a new star in the night sky and that each night, if we choose to look up, we can see our moments flickering and sparkling above us to wish for more, to simply admire what is there and hope that someone somewhere is wishing on one of our memorable moments for themselves.
And you know what I may like the most?
I could pick a room and hang picture after picture from the ceiling and make believe they are the stars I have built in my own Life sky.
