If you ever start to feel overwhelmed, try going outside, looking up, and breathing deeply.

The other day, I was feeling bummed about being in the land of strip malls that just a few years ago was all woods. And while sitting in my car in the fairly depressing parking lot of a big box hardware store while waiting for my partner to buy a new lawnmower, I was reminded of the bigger picture with the sky scape in the graphic.

Thank you Mother Nature. I needed that, but you knew that already. Mother Nature presents us with whispers, and shouts when we aren’t listening, to remind us to come back to her.

You are an inherent part of nature. And nature is always there to support you, in big and tiny ways. When you take a minute to tap into the source, you will be filled with vitality and peace.

Check out the full Neil de Grasse Tyson quote from above. Super inspiring!!

“There is a fundamental reason why we look at the sky with wonder and longing—for the same reason that we stand, hour after hour, gazing at the distant swell of the open ocean. There is something like an ancient wisdom, encoded and tucked away in our DNA, that knows its point of origin as surely as a salmon knows its creek. Intellectually, we may not want to return there, but the genes know, and long for their origins. But if the seas are our immediate source, the penultimate source is certainly the heavens… The spectacular truth is—and this is something that your DNA has known all along—the very atoms of your body—the iron, calcium, phosphorus, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and on and on—were initially forged in long-dead stars. This is why, when you stand outside under a moonless, country sky, you feel some ineffable tugging at your innards. We are star stuff. Keep looking up.” — Neil de Grasse Tyson
