Vast.

I think that a lot of anxiety comes from the fear of failure, of not reaching goals in life. I think that a lot of depression and anxiety stems from people thinking that this world is just so huge. That there are just so many people, so many creatures, “what am I, as one person, going to do to make any difference in the world?” People feel small, insignificant, just a drop of water in a vast ocean.

We are HUGE though, we are incredibly significant, each beautiful and wonderful action that’s done on a daily basis causes ripple effects. A smile, holding the door for someone, a compliment, seemingly insignificant fleeting moments in life are so much more important than we think.

Your life is remarkable, don’t let anyone make you think otherwise.

  1. Beautiful post. I love that poem by William Blake that goes “To see a World in a Grain of Sand
    And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
    Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
    And Eternity in an hour.”
    ― William Blake,

  2. I have seen a beautiful documentary the other night called ” I Am” made in 2010 and in it there was a sentence that caught my heart…Believe in the power of one…
    If we all believed in the power of one (ourselves), we could change so much and not feel anymore like a drop in the ocean. Thank you for coming over and following 🙂
