In the Universe

Sometimes the best way to deal with stress is to take a break from it. Going back to nature is a powerful way to put my life in perspective and give rise to a more simple state of mind.

Going camping, hiking, and being away from home for 24 hours was just what I needed. I remembered how it felt to be a kid again, hanging out in the woods and not thinking about schedules or what I should be doing next.  It is a rare moment when I can actually stop thinking about what the future holds, but I managed to this weekend.

The night sounds of frogs, crickets, and campers talking in the background was music to my ears as I fell asleep.

As I gazed up at the stars beaming in the sky, I was profoundly aware of how small I am in this vast universe, and it was strangely comforting.
