I stayed up late last night watching the lightning show the monsoonal storm provided. It did not disappoint. There was a moment where there was a break in the clouds and I could see a distant star next to a towering cloud which was lit up in white and orange as the lightning would occur. I watched this until the clouds came together and the star disappeared. It was one of those humbling moments; a moment where I was keenly aware of just how small I am in this great big universe.
Sometimes we get a bit caught up in ourselves and forget to just watch the storm. We are big in our own minds, but in reality, we are but a microscopic spec in this world.
It’s good to be reminded. It puts much into perspective – what is real vs. what is fabricated by this crazy world we live in.
I’m thankful for the storms.
