Reach for the stars like you mean it
“I was reaching for the stars the same way a cop or armed robber would tell me to reach for the stars in a bad movie—put em up.”
Episode 7: Reaching for the Stars
Yesterday I reconnected with an old friend and she may not have known it at the time but it really inspired me to do better. She didn’t say any profound quote that made me think this way however I met her in a land far away in the south. I realized after all this time I never came back to visit anyone from there. It made me see that I was reaching for the stars the same way a cop or armed robber would tell me to reach for the stars in a bad movie—put em up. It’s not enough to put your hands up aiming for the stars where only people around you can see it.
It looks great and sounds great in stories but I want to reach for the stars like I mean it. I want people to watch like they did every episode of Dragon Ball Super and then watch other people reacting to me as they are watching me reach for the stars just like in Dragon Ball Super.
After the meet up I look at myself and say; “All this time reaching for the stars and I didn’t even jump.”
I need to take a win or a loss in every moment. I feel as if most of our lives we simply don’t go to war. perhaps that is why taking a loss hurts so much. We are barely weekend warriors when war happens to us everyday and every moment.
Drop the Fads
Enough with the mystical improvements if there isn’t any work in the physical reality that we live in. You may feel better like drinking out of a water bottle that has a “crystal” inside but in reality the real benefit was the water that you drank. Time to make some plans to build some real resources to reach the stars and not just in mind and spirit this time. Let’s do this, if not the stars travel the four corners of the earth. Let’s do something, let’s enjoy life while we can.
