We are tiny, but we don’t think it when we are rushing around with jobs to go to, bills to pay, and other errands to do.
Just stop for a moment. Have you ever thought about what’s beyond our Earth, our solar system, our universe…our “huge” problems? We are surrounded by a vast mystery.
Let me give you a better picture of how tiny we really are.
And here’s our blue planet compared to the Sun.
Ha! And you tough the Sun was big?
But guess what’s bigger? This is Antares, the 15th brightest star, and 1000 light years away. And how far away is that? The distance light travels in 1000 years!
But it gets even bigger. Here’s a video from Buzzfeed that makes you wonder “What really is out there?”
WOW! We really are nothing compared to the rest of this world. Doesn’t this make all the little problems in our lives seem small and irrelevant?
We are on this Earth only for so long. Why should we waste any time feeling upset? Why don’t we smile more and laugh more and live more?
