There is a lot that can be said about the sky. Sometimes it is blue, sometimes grey. Sometimes it’s bright and sunny and other times dark and stormy. But one thing is for sure, no matter what it looks like at any given time it is a sight to behold.
When we were children we used to gaze up at the clouds and find shapes and figures in them. Why people stop doing that is beyond me. It is one of the most relaxing activities you can do, at any age, anywhere. If you ever find yourself needing a moment of respite from life, do yourself a favour and go look to the heavens and see what you can see there. Even if there are no clouds to find shape in, marvel at the wonder of the grandness above you.
When I look at the sky I can’t help but marvel at the smallness of my problems and my successes; I find it very humbling. Not only do I see the grandness of the sky but I also realize there are billions of people who can see the same sky, from different angles. Depending on where people are looking at it from, they see a completely different sky. For some it may be night, for others cloudy, sunny, stormy, clear or maybe a beautiful sunset or sunrise. All at the same time, all from different angles but all the same sky that connects us all. That reminds me to see situations from different angles as well. Something that we may at first think of as a problem or an issue can become a blessing or a boon if looked upon from a different angle or perspective.
Take the time to look at the sky. I’m sure you will find your answer there.
