Orange

One of the activities that I enjoy most is the walking. Sometimes, I just leave the House to give a turn by the colony where I live, thinking, seeing, breathing this last in the morning, when I can breathe some air with little pollution. One afternoon I went to pay some bills at a mall, which is about 25 minutes walk from my house. Upon returning, at about 6 in the afternoon, I noticed that the sky was slightly cloudy; already some stars should have appeared and I could not see them (another activity that I enjoy) due to the cloud mantle half Orange, half reddish. But going through the humble houses of some children who were playing to throw a ball, the attention of the other one of them headed its discovery: look, a star told him. Then I thought: If the child has been seen a star despite the cloudy, are why I not I have seen none yet? I kept walking, pondering, I decided he would try to see what little he had seen, and just to raise my eyes to the sky, by a tiny clear that opened between the clouds, I saw a star.

That afternoon I learned a valuable lesson: we can see our own star, despite the problems we face, if we just resist to resign. Resign is one of those temptations that comes with all sorts of justifications, on the one hand; and on the other hand, is presented as the best option rather than face a failure (although the reality is that sacrificing is worse than failure). Do you what star? My main intention is that we can reflect on the great role that is our life. And, as I write new articles, I care I find best songs, best words, best ideas, so that we emocionemos us with the wonderful work that we have between hands. It may be that we have to address economies in recession, our equal incomprehension, lack of interest from others in our accomplishments, envy, criticism and all imaginable situations; It may be that the clouds are so thick that rather than keep looking upward where our goal is, we begin to look down where there are complaints, excuses and discouragement.
