there are about 100,000,000,000 stars 
& about 88 constellations
the earth's diameter is 7,918 miles but it is just a speck
compared to the sun (diameter: 864,948 miles)
but even the sun is a speck of dust 
compared to the galaxy that we live in 
& this galaxy is a speck of dust 
compared to the estimated 100,000,000,000 galaxies in this universe
but look at how huge the earth seems in comparison to us
there are maybe 2,000,000- 50,000,000 different animals
there are maybe 9,000,000 turtles in the world
(who knows for sure bc extinction)
there are at least 7,000,000,000 people on this earth
you are 1 of 7,000,000,000 people

so many people live trying to not think about how small they are
& how big the universe is
but when we ignore the universe
we miss the bigger picture
humans might be small but we are aware-
aware that everything we do is part of something bigger, deeper
our souls connect us to the universe on a deeper level 
& if we take out the idea of a soul 
we take ourselves out of the equation
there's so much darkness in the universe even with the
100,000,000,000 stars & 100,000,000,000 galaxies 
(that we know of)
but our souls are light
our souls & ourselves- 
we are so much bigger than we seem
we're unique, special, 
& we all have a piece of the universe inside of us

you have the universe inside of you
we all do
the universe exploded & 
galaxy dust filled your lungs & 
light filled your soul & 
your eyes sparkle with the stars
so even if we are just a speck of dust- 
even if you are just one tiny person
you are something much much bigger
the universe is as much in you as 
you are in the universe
