When I get stressed or cocky, something usually comes along and reminds me that right now, RIGHT NOW, I’m hurling through space on a ball of iron and mud—one among trillions in the observable universe—and that my time here is the smallest drop in an unimaginably enormous bucket.  Ironically, using logic to remind myself of my personal insignificance is actually relaxing.  

Because when all is said and done, nothing seems to make sense aside from trying to do my best, be good to others…and enjoying myself along the way.

    • Me too! I like watching astrophysics documentaries for that reason, and I’ll always treasure my nights in the desert where I’d get to look up at the sky with no light pollution and the stars looked like giant fat sparks. Amazing!
