In Dr. Seuss’s story of the star-belly sneetches, all the sneetches wanted to be star-belly sneetches,
This was because the sneetches with stars on their bellies were considered - or considered themselves - the most significant. That was, until the other sneetches started painting stars on their bellies too.
Then it became the rage to NOT have a star on one’s belly. So one could be considered - or consider oneself - significant.
One of the most driving human needs - significance (worth, importance).
How do you find significance?
Idea: Stop searching and start seeing what's been there all along.
You are. Significant. Important. Worthy. A Love. A Star-belly.
Focus on those feelings within yourself and watch the Universe make you even more so!!
From one star-belly to another, I send love.
