2015-0718 Relative Size

I noticed this video on the site of Erik Nanstiel. Although the video is about planets and stars, it helps explain how little we know about adversity today. Think of adversity as a little dot, much smaller than the tip of a pencil. Now, watch the video. ~ Beyond Adversity

    and they are very small often petty, indeed, in comparison to what is really going on.. but there is at least one fundamental difference between us as human beings and the planets…. we are able to chose what we focus on !
