I Saw a Star – Day 1 of the Quote Challenge

I want to thank Discovering Your Happiness for inviting me to participate in the 3 day quote challenge. Her support has touched me, as does her writing. I found her post about why it’s important to stay single particularly meaningful. I reblogged it already but if you missed it you should read it now!

The timing couldn’t be better as I’ve just finished the draft of my book, which happens to include 4 quotes that are very relevant to my life (you may find that I’ll do this for 4 days instead of just 3).


  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
  • Share why this quote appeals so much to you.
  • Nominate 3 different bloggers for each day.

The first one I will share with you is:


“I saw a star.  I reached for it.  I missed, so I accepted the sky.” – Scott Fortino

For me this isn’t just about reaching for something and accepting something else, possibly less than what you’d hoped. That’s really not me at all.

What this says to me is that sometimes we weren’t meant to catch just one star, but rather appreciate the entire sky and all its beauty.

And with that I will tag 3 fellow bloggers who I hope will join me in this challenge:

The Wonderful and Wacky World of One Single Mom
Creative PTSD Gal
Objects and the Distance Between Them

You have all touched a special piece of my heart. Thank you for joining me on this journey!
