It was Sunday night when we ended our weekend by relaxing our muscles in the hot jacuzzi after a pretty intense workout earlier that day. We both looked up to the stars and was reminded about how small we really are. With the Orion belt looming right over us, we ended up chatting about the importance of appreciating moments like these. Moments when you compare your tiny little self to how vast this world...this universe is, and in conclusion, how insignificant our problems truly are.
Daniel was telling me how comforting it is for him to simply look up at the sky, and remember how we are all connected - - to know that we are not alone, and the sky will always be there for reassurance. When he told me that, it brought me back to the days I was traveling alone through all these different countries, and how lonely I felt. No familiar faces, meeting strangers everyday, and missing my home country. I recall feeling all right again, especially after star gazing because I would think to myself,
'How cool would it be if Daniel or my family or friends, are looking up at the sky at the same exact time I'm doing it?'
Which brought me to my next thought,
'If we can all see the same thing, we're all in this together, all connected and never truly alone.'
I took comfort in those thoughts. Back at the jacuzzi, I also told Daniel another reason why I enjoy star/sky gazing is because it's a quick reminder that we are only speck, very tiny, very small part of this amazing universe. 'Because we are small, our individual problems are that much smaller. So, what's there to worry about? Nothing!'
