Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations.  I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

What would you do if you knew you could not fail? What kind of person would you be? What would at typical day look like? There’s a reason that star-gazing provokes the most powerful dreams. They’re right there for the taking, yet you can’t touch them. Their distance only feeds an ability to inspire. Dreams may seem out of reach, but that’s not the point of dreams. They’re there to be felt, not touched or dissected – what a star is made of is meaningless to a moonlit dreamer. The epic possibilities are what’s important. The payoff is not so much in the destination as it is in the journey. By following your dreams, you make their beauty a part of who you are. Your life begins to shine. You become a better person. By chasing that star, you’ve already captured its magic.

To be better than we are today, we have to look up. To improve and inspire we have to look up. Maybe we are just contacting the creator!

I'm new to this site and this is the first inspiration quote I've read. It was so odd because I have a poster in front of my desk that has this exact quote on it. It's a good daily remind to always reach for your dreams.

Makes me think of my favorite Robert Frost poem. (Forgive me , Mr. Frost, if I misquote a bit.):
The way a crow shook down on me
A dust of snow from a hemlock tree
Has given my heart a change of mood
And saved part of a day I had rued.

Wow, how this quote hit home, I just celebrated what would of been my 11th wedding anniversary on June 2. Husband died of cancer 4 years ago. We had so many dreams but sometimes I find it very hard to continue without him. I want to reach those stars where he is and show him I can do it.

star-gazing provokes powerful dreams
follow your dreams, make them a part of who you are
your life begins to shine
you become a better person
one day at a time

I really needed to read this today. I need to try to reach toward my dreams and not become so bogged down in the here and now that I lose sight of where I want to go.
