Instead of a quote, today I wanted to share this video that was created from an essay written by Carl Sagan, an astronomer and writer of “Pale Blue Dot”. I know, astrology and science don’t really fit with fashion bloggers but hear me out. Watch the video and I know you will feel the same way as I did when I saw it.

It’s so easy to take things for granted, to forget to look at the bigger picture. This video asks that you take a step back, look up to the sky and realize how ridiculously amazing this world is. Even with all the struggles, pain and suffering, we are here, right now. Don’t focus on your smallness, the seemingly tiny space you think you inhabit. Instead, focus on how large your life is, how much you have touched others and what you are bringing to this world.

Once you take the microscope off your perceived reality, you can start to appreciate all that is around you.
