I am astronomically aware.
I am aware that there is a moon and stars.
I am aware of the odds (astronomically slim) that caused me to be alive right now.
To have been born into this world, at this time in history.
Although I might think the same thing had I been born in another time …
We don’t know. We just don’t know.
I am aware that I have, up until now, lived a pretty blessed life.
I have what I need.
But that, of course, also comes down to mindset.
I mean, I could say I need a private jet.
I could even believe it if I tried hard enough.
But that would only lead to me feeling like I don’t live a blessed life.
And that would suck.
I am astronomically aware that there are an astronomical number of things I am unaware of.
Get your mind around that one.
… or not.
It even gives me a headache.
And I wrote it.
Problem is, I believe it.
So it’ll probably keep me up all night.
I am astronomically aware of how lucky I am.
To have the ones I love close by.
To have the means to communicate with the entire world from the comfort of my living room.
To have had all the opportunities I’ve had throughout my life, and the wisdom (for the most part) to know what to do with them.
I am astronomically aware …
that I should be going to bed now.
Good night, dreamers.
