When life gets you down, you should take a moment to zoom out and reevaluate your goals/actions. After a few minutes of pondering, you’ll come to a scary yet interesting conclusion. We are all on this tiny rock that is floating in space and going around the sun. There are billions of galaxies in the universe, and we’re only a part of one. If that doesn’t make you feel small, then I don’t know what will.
Our Earth feels like all there is, nonetheless we should constantly try to remind ourselves that we’re all brothers and sisters on this fascinating place. Do you take care of your home and treat your loved ones with respect? If so, then Earth is no different. We’re all in this thing together. I know that might sound corny as hell, however this kind of viewpoint humbles people and allows them to control their indomitable ego’s.
The following images will make you feel like a tiny ant. The reason I wrote the two paragraphs above is to make you appreciate these stunning photographs even more than you would have. So far we are the only living organisms, that we know of, in this Universe. Who knows, maybe in the future we will meet others or start setting up colonies on Mars. One thing for sure is that the Universe is truly marvelous. Enjoy!
