No one is looking but you.
You just pulled a fresh batch of the most yummiest looking cookies out of the oven and smelled in the goodness, or you hit the trash can after it bounced off the edge with that paper shot at least 10 feet away and clapped your hands and hit your knee. Or you parallel parked that even the DMV would have hired you to instruct and you smiled at yourself in the rear-view-mirror. OR you were in the exact right time at the right place and slowed for the real-live turkey family to waddle across the street, and slowed traffic so no one would hurt them, cracking up, even though you were in a hurry. OR you remembered to compliment your regular coffee maker how “their” just-right-whipped-cream-touch makes your day perfect, and you both smile. OR when you were practicing your soccer shot far from the goal…barely clearing the top rim edge, and you turn and look to see if anyone else noticed…
We are stars more often then we think.
About now we begin to hate our New Year’s resolution we made for ourselves…if we even made one. (I haven’t yet…)
The holiday thrill is long gone.
We are crabby just because it is January and well, Martin Luther King made such a difference.
What do I do except…exist.
But that is just it.
We are stars every single day and we don’t even think about it.
Certainly don’t acknowledge it to ourselves.
Can you just hear the crowds scream and cheer, even for those little tiny things which make you think…‘Hmmm, wow, did you see that!’
Forget those mediocre thoughts.
‘You are a STAR!’
Turn and take a bow…
even if no one is there.
We are there and we are all cheering for you!
(“WOW! YEY! WHOOO-HOOOOO! YES! YES! YES! SWEET! ARE YOU KIDDING ME! COME HERE AND CHECK THIS OUT! THAT IS AMAZING! I LOVE THIS! YEAHHHHHHHHH! HURRAY! SO COOL! WAHHHH!” STOMP! STOMP! CLAP-CLAP-CLAP! HUG! PAT! breathe, sit…”phew! that was amazing…”)
