blinded

I came across a quote the other day and it was one of those quotes that sticks with you no matter where you go.

“I wonder how society would live if we all looked up at the stars every one in a while”. 

Really made me think about how if we all stopped doing what we’re doing for one day, took a look around at where we are in our lives and where we’re going, maybe we’d be able to feel better about what decisions we’re making. I mean, most of us are 17-18 years old, have been accepted to university, are starting full time jobs for the summer, travelling next year, or have absolutely no idea where they’ll be in the next 5 years. Society really pushes you to decide what you’re going to do right here and right now, but sometimes I feel like that’s not enough time. I think I’d like to stare at the stars a little while longer.

  1. This is so scarily accurate–stars have such a hypnotic effect, I find. I looked up to the stars one night a few days ago because it was a positively BEAUTIFUL night here in France and I was delighted and surprised that I could still pick out constellations such as the Big and Little Dippers that I know so well in Canada. It made me strangely content to know that no matter where I was, the stars would follow. 🙂
