"But I have a new love for that glittering instrument, the human soul. It is a lovely and unique thing in the universe. It is always attacked and never destroyed---because 'Thou mayest.'" -Lee (East of Eden, John Steinbeck)

Almost everyone has heard someone tell them to reach for the stars. I know I have. But sometimes when we do our best to be our best, it just doesn't feel like we are reaching the expectations society sets for us in life. I believe that as long as you are doing your very best to be your very best (in any aspect of life, school, sports, ect), NOBODY can tell you what you can and can't do. If you reach for the stars but end up landing on the Moon, it's better than standing still, and you should be proud of that.

What I'm saying is as long as you do your best, you have something to be proud of.
