Let your potential burn bright

Our world being full of humans is like the universe being full of stars. Not every star glows as brightly as the other, yet each is so full of potential that they illuminate the space around them. Whatever orbits these stars will be affected by the gravity of personality. Some stars though have a cloud of haze and fog that surounds their beauty. A self made cloak that shields them from prying eyes. Outside influences try and remove the clouds yet the dust settles around the star again after a while leaving a potential bright star in a cloudy fog. It is almost as if the star wishes to be invisible. But every star should know that if you remove this mist that surrounds you, and ignore the negative emotions that force this seclusion, a brighter, happier star will be seen by the entire universe, in all it’s natural glory.

For the potential is there to be happy, yet we all allow our insecurities and failures to sweep around us as if it will help, when all it does is grow an atmosphere beneath of resentment and bitterness. Blow away the clouds, reach out to the universe, try and fail at things you always wanted to do, you never know what you may find out about yourself. No matter where you are in your life a star can always still burn brighter than before and help others realize their potential. For when the star collapses in it’s final spectacular goodbye, it scatters itself around the universe. Make sure what you leave behind is positive and encouraging for every new star that comes along. Have a creative day.

  1. And you created another galaxy of truth with your shining words. Thank you for the enlightenment from your beautiful universe!

    Oh yes I love that green and I hope I can come up with my own version of wordy-mario poster.


    1. Thank you for being a star in my universe!

      I am sure your super mario poster would be full of fun and thought provoking inspiration.

      Take care Alan.


  2. As always, Alan, your words are inspiring and like little stars in and of themselves! 🙂 I know sometimes my light gets dimmed when others try to put a basket over it…but as each year passes I learn to force my light to shine through even the tiniest of cracks! 🙂 My fav pix are: 1st and 2nd in the 3rd row and the very last one of Jimi Hendrix. 🙂


    1. We all allow external things to cloud our personal world, me included. I often write how I am feeling about what I am allowing to happen to me so you are certainly not alone 🙂

      I love the Jimi Hendrix poster, fantastic! I am sure my wife and daughter would love the hello kitty picture as well!

      Take care Alan.


  3. Your post reminds me of something that I read the other day “… God won’t ask how much overtime you worked, but will ask if you worked overtime for your family and loved ones. He won’t ask what you did to help yourself, but will ask what you did to help others. He won’t ask how many friends you had, but will ask how many people to whom you were a true friend. God won’t ask what you did to protect your rights, but will ask what you did to protect the rights of others. He won’t ask how many times your deeds matched your words, but will ask how many times they didn’t…” You don`t have to have a lot of faith or even be religious to know, that respecting and being considerate of others often gets you the same treatment in return.


    1. I totally agree Seth, and how well you said it! I see you are a man who wears his heart on his sleeve and wants to live a life where you inspire others when you can whilst still achieving your goals. Good luck, Take care Alan.
