So, sometimes we don’t make it to the big time right away. It’s a process, like Eta Carinae here, with her dumbbell-shaped partial collapse. Back in 1843, she got close to supernova status, but was not completely compressed or allowed to spray all her wonderful elements out to the universe. She’s still hanging on to star life, waiting for her big moment in space-time. I would imagine that you may feel, more or less often, that feeling of not quite being where your soul wants to be, not quite in a position to shine your brightest or give your most-est. Patience. Shine with what you’ve got right now. You are already beautiful.
