I stumbled across this cool live feed of the International Space Station orbiting Earth, courtesy of Nasa, on YouTube. What an awesome and humbling view.
It’s so easy to get carried away in the big-ness of our own personal problems. Or even those of the world at large. Sometimes, you just need to take a step back and get a view from a different perspective.
You guys…we live on an orb, full of life and vegetation, suspended in space, that circles a burning ball of fire and gas. Our problems are what we make them, and nothing more.
Maybe there’s something seemingly insurmountable in your path. Step back for a moment and breathe. Come back to it after you’ve had a chance to refresh and recoup. A renewed outlook may be just the thing you need to get yourself together.
We are made of the same stuff that powers the sun, and other stars burning bajillions of miles across the galaxy. Learn about and get comfortable with being your own badass self. It’s super fun and well worth the trouble. Take your power and shape your life. It’s really that simple.
"Live video from the International Space Station includes internal views when the crew is on-duty and Earth views at other times. The video is accompanied by audio of conversations between the crew and Mission Control. This video is only available when the space station is in contact with the ground. During "loss of signal" periods, viewers will see a blue screen. Since the station orbits the Earth once every 90 minutes, it experiences a sunrise or a sunset about every 45 minutes. When the station is in darkness, external camera video may appear black, but can sometimes provide spectacular views of lightning or city lights below." ~~~nasa.gov
