Did you know that you were born with a powerful purpose within you? Like a star shining on a dark night, you’re here to light the way for others. Joyce Johnson Rouse wrote a song called “A Small Star” that Jana Stanfield sings. It is a beautiful reminder of how important each of us is and how if we allow ourselves to be our true selves, we can impact others for good:
You don’t have to feel brave to be brave.
And I don’t have to feel strong to be strong.
We don’t have to feel inspiring to inspire.
Remember when your road is rough and long:
Even a small star shines in the darkness
For someone somewhere to see.
It lights the way for those in the distance.
That’s what your courage means to me.
Maybe there are times you feel lonely.
Like no one sees the world the you do.
Remember each of us is made uniquely,
And no one ever sees their own magnitude.
So don’t be afraid to be a little brilliant.
Don’t be afraid to shine in someone’s eyes.
If we can trust the gifts that sometimes make us different.
Then we can all learn to shine, shine shine!”
