Today is June 1st which means it’s the first day of Winter which also means that most people in the world who realise this will say to themselves “Is it really June already? Wow! Where’s the time gone?”
This is because we all live busy lives and we tend to not pay close attention to what it is that we do on a day to day basis. One day of inattention after another later and… We end up in June already wondering what the hell just happened.
We all collectively need to “stop and smell the roses” so to speak. We need to stop rushing around, take a deep breathe and be still for a moment.
We need to do this so we can all gain a bit of perspective on life and I think this video below is one of the best ways for us to do this.
This video the “pale blue dot” showcases one of the most beautifully eloquent monologues on our existence I’ve ever heard, narrated by one of the most brilliant minds of our time, Carl Sagan.
I thought I’d put it up here as a reminder of what’s really important in this world we live in.
The ONLY world that we live in.
I can’t help but shed a little tear every time I see this because for me, this is the ultimate reality check.
Gives you something to think about doesn’t it?
