But often, that is just the time we need to look up.
To the sky.
Physically and metaphorically.
When I am feeling a bit overwhelmed and flustered, when it seems there is just too much going on, too much to get done… I take a step back and look up.
And then I have a little more perspective. Little ol’ me in this big ol’ universe. In a world with lots more troubles than I have. Not that mine aren’t important. They just aren’t as grand as I can make them feel.
And metaphorically, I look up. To a higher perspective. My higher Self. I remember that it really isn’t all about me, but how I bring myself into the world.
It also reminds me to be grateful. To be grateful for being in this moment, in this space. Who I am, with what I have, where I am. And to see that as “enough.” It is too easy to let the “not enough’s” call out to me, call me down, scare me.
But then, I look up. To pivot me out of my little thoughts and into bigger thoughts. From a higher perspective. From a place of connection. From awe.
