Reach for the Stars

Spread out your arms and reach for the stars.

Be open and willing to receive.

Let nothing hold you back,

And let no-one say you can’t.

Reach for the stars, my love,

And be the best that you can be.

There is no limit to who you are,

And no limit to what you can be.

Go forth into the world and follow your dream.

And remember:

Reach for the stars

And be the best that you can be.

Five-Minute-Friday-badgeAs I wrote these words I was thinking of my children who will, in a few years time, finish school and begin their lives as adults. What I wish for them is that they do their best in whatever it is that they choose to do. I would love for them to “reach for the stars”.Β

    1. Thank you Julie. My eldest daughter is starting high school on Tuesday and my message to her is to do her best. Guess this message is a little on my mind lately πŸ™‚

  1. I was thinking of my children as I read your poem, today. I have a recent graduate, a sophomore in HS, and a 7th grader who has started her journey towards the end of this school career here at home. We are all consistently thinking of the future when we talk about what they need to be working for. I will have to share this with them. I hope you won’t mind if it ends up on my fridge.
    Joining you on the FMF writing prompt today from Kate’s.

    Reach for the stars, my love,
    And be the best that you can be.
