Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are!

Up above the world so high,

Like a diamond in the sky.

When the blazing sun is gone,

When he nothing shines upon,

Then you show your little light,

Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

Then the traveler in the dark

Thanks you for your tiny spark,

How could he see where to go,

If you did not twinkle so?

In the dark blue sky you keep,

Often through my curtains peep

For you never shut your eye,

Till the sun is in the sky.

As your bright and tiny spark

Lights the traveler in the dark,

Though I know not what you are,

Twinkle, twinkle, little star.

My favourite nursery rhyme is a popular one.  Here is my attempt to give it a new interpretation.

Inspiration is like a little star. It is small sometimes, but powerful. Also just like a star that reflects the light of the sun, it reflects the light of our own hope. It responds to us.

This shiny speck of bright optimism can carry us through dark times, long distances and help us overcome hurdles in life.

Inspiration is all around us. Waiting for us to choose it. Make the first move. And start a never ending journey.
