Monday Mindset – Some perspective… The Pale Blue Dot 🌎 1024 526 Bryce Henson


After last week’s intense message with some calls to action. I wanted to take a step back this week and provide some perspective with the goal of making you think. 🤔

To give some back story, I am a big science and history nerd and can watch hours of the “Universe” or “History” channels. These topics fascinate me and suppose I have a deep intrigue of why we are here, where we come from and how it all came to be.

I am also enthralled with the study of human nature. We are a very interesting species and our natures can be very predictable when studies and as evidence, it repeats throughout the ages.

Anyway, world renown and the late astronomist Carl Sagan put together the video below called a “Pale Blue Dot”, referring to earth that I wanted to share with you today as I found some inspiration. 🌎

To me the video is extremely powerful as throughout all the craziness we are experiencing as a country and world, it puts things in proper perspective. And here are some take a ways and todays call to action to jump start your week!

“The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood, spilled by those generals and emperors so that in glory and triumph, they could be the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot.

Our posturing. Our “imagined” self-importance. The delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe are challenged by this point of pale light.

To me it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another.  And to preserve and cherish, the pale blue dot. The only home we have ever known.” 

Friends, in all the challenged that these last 12 months have brought, I wanted to provide today with some perspective.

Life is about challenge, it’s always been this way.

And while it can be frustrating, the truth is that are all doing our best. In fact as time progresses we will realize it’s not as bad or good as we think.

But only time will show this.

So to wrap things up, todays message is to accept the fact that if we want to live in a better world, it starts with you. It starts with me. 🤲

My call to action is to take care of yourself. Work out 3x per week. Move your body (which helps your body and mind). Sweat. Drink water. Sleep. Be kind. Help others. Smile.

And when you do, you create a foundation for being the best version of yourself.

As how can you help others and better our world, if you cannot help and take care of yourself?

You cannot.

So it starts with you and it starts with me.. 💪🔥

Head up and onward, we are in this together so make it an INCREDIBLE Monday!! ♥️
