Reach For Your Star
Do not take anything as being forever
as forever is only as long as today.
Know that the people who are richest
are not those who have the most,
but those who need the least.
We are at our strongest when life is at its worst,
and at our weakest
when life no longer offers a challenge.
That it is wiser not to expect but to hope,
for in expecting you ask for disappointment,
whereas in hoping you invite surprise.
Unhappiness doesn't come from not having
something you want,
but from the lack of something inside that you need.
There are things to hold
and things to let go of,
and letting go doesn't mean you lose
but that you acquire that
which has been waiting around the corner.
Most of all,
remember to use your dreams
as a way of knowing yourself better,
and as an inspiration
to reach for your star.....
