I’m not one to be superstitious but on vacation I bought a “voodoo doll” (the picture as my avatar), just for fun. It came with this message though, that has deep thought that I’d like to share.
Every star is different from the others. Every star has its own strengths, weaknesses, passions, dislikes, and so on. Every “star” has its own hopes and dreams.
The message here is trying to get every person to realize that they are their own star, and no matter how different, should still be confident and courageous in pursuing whatever dream and goal in life they may have.
A deeper message in this is for us not to judge everyone because they are all their own star, shooting for something different. Try not to look at a lesbian that is aiming to become a doctor strange. Or try not to think things about a guy with “weird” facial hair before even talking to him. It’s usually human nature and we do it naturally without even noticing sometimes. It’s actually really hard not to. I admit I catch myself looking at someone with purple hair sometimes like “What the hell is she thinking?” But you never know, maybe her life dream is to be in a band, or she may just be trying to show everyone that it is okay to be different, unique and yourself.
Everyone is always saying to be yourself, but in today’s society, we have more work to do on both ends of the stick to individuality and acceptance.
Think about it and try it.
