Life is short. It’s not exactly a unique insight, but it’s the reality for human life. We have a precious few decades to make our mark in this universe.
Supernovas are the explosions that end the brief lives of supermassive stars. These stars burn bright and die young, as stars go. Our sun has an estimated lifespan of 10 billion years. It burns slowly and relatively dimly. There are stars out there with a diameter of our entire solar system and they may only live 10 million years.
We share something with these stars. Our lives are brief. The difference is we don’t burn automatically hot and bright and go out with a bang.
We have to work at it and sometimes it’s hard. We can drift along invisibly for our time here and leave no mark at all. We have that choice.
If you believe, as I do, that we’re here to make some difference and that our existence is no accident, then you can use these stars as a metaphor. Your time like theirs is short, but you are going to choose to burn as bright as you can as long as you can. Then, one day, when your light does go out, you’ll be a bright burst of energy the whole will witness and miss.
If no one else has told you today, you ARE AWESOME! Shine on!

Ray Davis - The Affirmation Spot
I am the Founder of The Affirmation Spot, author of Annuanki Awakening, and co-founder of 6 Sense Media. My latest books are the Anunnaki Awakening: Revelation (Book 1 of a trilogy) and The Power to Be You: 417 Daily Thoughts and Affirmations for Empowerment.
I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company.
I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
Ray holds a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Secondary Education in Social Studies from University of Kansas. He lives in Spring Hill, Ks with his wife.
