“If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently.” — Bill Watterson
Do you ever stand in the middle of the night and look up the sky? The vast amount of stars make you think that you are nobody, your problems are nothing, and your existence is simply a mere dot in thousand of words. You begin to question the purpose of your life, and how things that matter the most to you before, does not matter anymore now. Indeed, understanding the universe will teach you the most valuable lesson in your life; the world does not revolves around you.
As long as you begin to realize this, you will start focusing on stuff that help improving yourself. You dismissed countless of arguments that does not bring any benefits to you in exchange of precious time you can spend on creating higher moral values within yourself. You are going to chase your dream with all your might, because the world is not going to wait for you. You are the one who need to do the chasing, and the road will never be smooth as you walk down the unclear path.
Look up the sky again, and you will see various color of stars. They are beautiful and stunning. But little did you know, some of them are approaching the end of their life. They have nothing to burn anymore to keep themselves alive, and slowly disintegrating onto the infinite space. Divert your attention to our own special star called the Sun. It might be just another insignificance small star in the universe that will die soon, but it never failed to shine brilliantly every single day for humanity to survive. Just like the Sun, you should offer something to society even they know nothing about you. Chance that you are to be remembered is smaller, but you may have changed someone’s life for the better.
Our universe is limitless and infinite, and there are another universe beyond our universe. So, pack yourself up and start doing great things. No one know what is their limit, and when there is no answer to that question, there is no limit.
