“When I look up at the night sky, and I know that, yes, we are part of this Universe, we are in this Universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the Universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up—many people feel small, because they’re small and the Universe is big, but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars.” – Neil DeGrasse Tyson [x]
This is a lot like how I get over my writing-related stress.
I go outside, stare at the sky for a bit, and remember how small I am.
Because I am ridiculously small. Ludicrously insignificant. Which makes it all the more brave that I’m spending my time working to achieve big things in my life.
Sometimes, getting a sense of perspective is good.
