I was first aware of the story of the starfish when my mother received an award when I was younger, and for making a difference, the story of the starfish was on the plaque she received. I also had the privilege of being in City Year after I graduated from undergrad. The legend of the starfish is one of the founding stories of City Year.
This is a video of the strarfish story.
The starfish story reminds me to attempt to make a difference every day. The difference we make can be as simple as complimenting a friend, or as meaningful as teaching a child.
I also love starfish items, that remind me of the wonderful story.
Vineyard Vines loves starfish!
Adore these shorts.
I also have this hat and matching mittens.
There are lots of wonderful starfish jewelry items, but earrings have to be my favorite!
I have these from J. Crew
KEP has these lovelies!
From Stella & Dot
And of course Tiffany.
Is there a symbol that you love or that has special meaning to you? Do you love starfish or any other "ocean" creature?
