Star Perspective


“Stars are formed inside vast clouds of hydrogen gas, such as the Eagle Nebula. A small fragment of cloud collapses under gravity.  It becomes increasingly squashed and eventually forms a spinning ball of gas termed a protostar—the first sign of a new star.” ~ One Million Things: A Visual Encyclopedia

When your future seems cloudy
When you feel like your world is collapsing
When your resolve is increasingly squashed
And your emotions feel as though they’re spinning out of control…

These are all indicators you’re becoming a star.
It’s up to you how bright you will shine.

 
Perspective is everywhere if we choose to see it. What have you discovered inside a discovery lately?

  1. I love this! I love how you found the deeper discovery inside, like you said, a discovery. I've been thinking about listening lately...realizing it's something from my reporter days that I want to re-instill in myself now. This weekend I had the opportunity to listen, really listen, a few times. I discovered things about new friends...and the discovery inside that was just the joy of listening, asking questions, being interested...

    1. There are times I need to hold my hand over my mouth but I'm always so glad after I've done that. Because I've given another the opportunity to truly be heard.

    Great post, girlie. My latest discoveries haven't exactly been positive but I never know what's around the corner. :-)

    1. LUBs is fun! I'm not thinking this star was enjoying the experience prior to starship either. Squashing stuff isn't my cuppa.

  3. I'm a stargazer and love this...

    I've been squashed lately, and some things were out of control.

    1. Love it--stargazer. They still take my breath away! I think that's when we get squashed the most--when things are most out of control.

    1. So glad this spoke to you. There are times I wonder if my words get through at all...and then I read comments like this. Thank you!

    1. I wish I could take credit, but it came from a deeper place from within that probably has a whole heck of a lot to do with God and maybe a teeny tiny part to do with me.
