What a look up into the night sky can teach us all.
Unless you've been living under a rock for literally the entirety of your life, you've probably been influenced in some way or another by the pervasive Hollywood culture; be it magazines in grocery stores, entertainment-based news shows/sources, or even the online articles that you might read about your favorite celebrities.
But here's the thing: while caring a great deal about if your favorite celebrity couple can make their relationship last is great and entertaining, it's not the end all be all in life. Yes, I myself love watching the news stories on the ins and outs of celebrity romances, but there are more important things in life.
How many times have you ever looked up into the night sky at all of the stars and really let the incredible beauty of it all sink in? Have you ever? Or did your days of stargazing fade away just like childhood memories?
Well, let me just say that a look into the sheer beauty of the sky on a starry night is incredibly humbling. It's oddly comforting to me to know that when I look into the night sky I can be comforted by the fact that while yes, our lives do matter by all means, that our lives aren't the only thing in this world that matter. Maybe that might be comforting to you, too.
Stars, galaxies, other solar systems, and every natural thing on earth has been here way longer than humans have; and that's oddly comforting because that fact reminds me that sometimes our human worries and obsessions with Hollywood culture are kind of superficial and vapid.
This also reminds me that sometimes stepping away from all of the celebrity gossip can be incredibly life-affirming and humbling.
There is more to life than just what we can see on the red carpet or the silver screen.
Sometimes a look into the night sky can give us all a little perspective on the things in life that really matter.
Life is more than just paying attention to celebrity culture. Life is about taking the time to dedicate yourself to things that really matter—the people in your life that have been there for you, your hobbies, your goals, your dreams, etc.
