Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.~ Prof. Stephen Hawking
It matters that you don’t just give up.
I was looking for a quote about stars to go with my image, and when I found the one above, it was that last sentence that got to me.
“It matters that you don’t just give up.”
I never just give up. Never have, and never will. When things get difficult, I push on. I try to make them right, if possible; try to turn negatives into positives. I push on, and on, and on… until I know it’s a lost cause, then only I give up.
But, I never just give up.
So yes, look up at the stars, look at the world around you. Try to understand people; to understand that we don’t all come from the same background, don’t all have the same frame of reference. Learn from those around you. Respect others, even if their views are not the same. Don’t judge others. Remember the stars. There are millions of them, just as there are millions of people, and millions of different truths in the world. Having your own truth, doesn’t mean you dismiss the truth of the other, right?
Remember to look at the stars, and be thankful for who you are. Stand firm in your beliefs, but never be disrespectful to those of others. Remember to carry on, no matter how difficult life is, and you will succeed at something. We all do. Be positive, and never just give up.
