We’re all familiar with the quote about how we are all basically stardust, right?
“Humans and their galaxy have about 97 percent of the same kind of atoms” Just Look
It’s always been something fun to talk about with friends over happy hour or while laying in bed with the little on a lazy weekend morning.
But the other morning when I was standing out on my deck taking in the beauty that is my backyard, I became very aware of how true the above discovery really is.
The next time you find yourself squinting as a result of the sun’s glorious power to shine, slow down. Revel in that exact moment you’re in. Don’t focus too hard. And take the time to let your eyes settle on what the sun’s reflection is revealing in your eyelashes.
In this subtle moment when you’re squinting you can see the soft sparkle that is right in front of you. A part of you. Your eyelashes sparkle exactly like stardust.
Isn’t that truly astonishing?
If I can’t be a unicorn, I’ll take being stardust.
