#26: Fond of Stars
“I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.”
Which decides your course of action: your goals or the uncertainties surrounding them? If you’re passionate about Something, if you love it, your focus will be on that Thing and you everything else will simply be part of the pursuit. What “night” is dimming your view of the stars? Don’t let the unsure darkness warp your view or remove your eyes from your Star. Don’t let it stop you; instead, let your Stars brighten that night and make it something beautiful.
Additional note: I picked this quote for today because it’s the one-year anniversary of my first NASATweetup event. In fact, the first tie I saw this quote was when another participant in that event shared it! I almost didn’t even go to this event at Wallops Flight Facility last year because I was very unsure about travelling such a distance all on my own (I’d never done it before then), but in the end the adventure was too intriguing. I love the opportunity too much to be fearful of the “night”. And I’m sure glad I went! This tumblr, for one, would not exist if not for everything that trip ended up being the gateway to!
