Remember to reach for the stars and never settle - even if you might get hurt.

It's funny how the stars we want to reach have strings attached to danger and risk. Reach for the Stars by *ketchup-suicide wonderfully depicts how one should never give up trying to get to possibilities that may otherwise seem impossible. ( Suggested by mgyth and Featured by alphakx )

I still have my print of this hanging in my house.

A year and a half ago I moved out of my parent's house and out into the world to pursue my carrer as a professional belly dancer, and I took my print of this with me. I've moved more times than I care to count in the last year, and I've dragged this and a Du Chat Noir poster (the colors go together nicely) everywhere I've been. It's made every room I've stayed in feel more familiar and safe, as odd as that might sound, because I'm so familiar with it now. While the Du Chat Nior has gotten beaten up pretty, this has stayed in a frame, safe. It has not lost its luster or any of the wonder I felt the first time I looked at it, and it remains my favorite piece of yours.

I remember seeing this the first week that it came up on DeviantArt, and it's something that's always stuck out in my mind. I saved it to my hard drive that first week, and it's been on every computer I've owned since then. It's definitely an ideology that I've tried hard to adopt in my life.

I'm going to get this tattooed on me, I hope you don't mind.

It's going to be quite a costly tattoo, but when I get the outline started, I'll be sure to show you it.
