Stars don’t shine. They burn.

This was my favorite line from the movie Encanto… Stars don’t shine. They burn.

When I first heard it I was like, “aaah, what the heck does that mean?”

Then I started thinking… Most people look at stars and see perfect, beautiful, unreachable diamonds that twinkle in the sky.

But in reality, stars are raging balls of fire. They’re a hot mess, in a constant state of combustion and change.

Being a star doesn’t mean being perfect. It means embracing your flaws and dealing with your situation the best you can.

Today: Drop the idea of perfectionism. Just keep burning the best you can today.

Make it a good one ✨
