Fact: I usually only get about 5 hours of sleep a night. Last night though, I made Swoon set his alarm so we could go up to the roof and check out the blood moon. In a lunar eclipse, the full moon turns copper color and it passes through the earth's shadow. It was beautiful. I had never seen a lunar eclipse before, and of course it made me feel incredible inspired and incredibly small. I'm happy I got up to see it though.
The amount of time we spend looking DOWN at our phones, DOWN at our ipads or DOWN at our feet, is unreal. I literally cannot remember the last time I looked up. There was something so special about looking around the neighbourhood and seeing other people on their roofs, or the streets. Standing together, offering a collective gasp about this life we live, it's nice to be in wonder sometimes. It's nice to feel a little humbled and small. We really are beyond lucky to be here and on earth and have this human expirence.
Sometimes, I feel like such a failure. Like, I'm not enough, or doing enough or successful enough. I could work 23 or the 24 hours in the day and still not be accomplishing enough. It's a terrible feeling. I'm so hard on myself. I love that last night, just for a second, I got to stare up at the sky in wonderment, of what is really out there.
I hope we can all remember, even when the blood moon isn't around to be in wonder of just how amazing it is that we are here and alive and existing in this magical universe. xx.
