Try shifting your perspective when you feel that you’re not where you’re supposed to be in life.
You are standing exactly where you should. Seriously. You don’t trust me? Think of yourself as being visible to you from the moon. The ability to leave your body is an amazing self-awareness skill. Expand on that and move from rudimentary objectivity to philosophy. Think of your life as if it were seen from the moon, so away from the everyday that all that is left to see is the grandeur of life, which is the only thing that is actually true.
Although it can be challenging, the idea of existence is actually far bigger than your current experience. You offer yourself the chance to be better than yourself when you acknowledge that there is so much more to the universe than what you regularly observe, hear, touch, and experience. You become connected to everything in existence and realise that you are precisely where you are supposed to be. Seriously. Every situation in existence is visible when you look at yourself from the moon, including your own troubles as well as those of the entire planet and the human race as a whole.
You are not alone; rather, you are a part of something that is much greater, more intricate, and interconnected than you could ever understand. It’s true that the “you” from the moon is an amazing combination of time, space, and matter that has succeeded in achieving its sole objective: survival. Having this perspective will alter how you perceive your present situation. Consider your past and the tale of you as a voyeur on the moon thousands of miles away. Recognise every situation that you vowed you couldn’t recover from as you go through it, and be conscious of the fact that you are still standing. You have already triumphed over everything, as evidenced by the fact that you are reading this right now.
It demonstrates how life finds a way. You have managed to survive despite all obstacles. When you view yourself objectively, you see that your story is one of survival and success rather than being at all average or ordinary. Every choice you’ve made has brought you to where you are now, so there are no mistakes. Even while you might not be where you want to be right now, you are undoubtedly moving in the correct direction. Perhaps you just haven’t met your objectives because there are still a few “won’t come back from” points to overcome. You may not be living your ideal life because you lack perspective, which would allow you to see that you already are.
When you reach the moon and look back, it becomes obvious that there were only ever two possibilities: either you could have struggled to reach this point or you could not have survived. You got by. You have stood up for yourself, overcoming your fears, and demonstrating that you possess the solutions each time you felt as though you had reached your lowest point. Find comfort in the knowledge that you have overcome the past and will overcome the present challenges since they prepare you for the future ones. I assure you that everything will be fine since you are right now at the proper place. It was seen from the moon.
Everything is based on perspective. According to astronaut Michael Collins, the political leaders of the globe would have a profoundly different outlook if they could see their planet from a distance of, say, 100,000 miles. The crucial border would be invisible, and the loud argument would suddenly stop. Living only in the present moment gives you tunnel vision, places you in the midst of crucial borders and loud disputes, and prevents you from realising your ultimate mission. Instead, take a step back, distinguish between what is genuine and what is meaningless, and be proud of your life thus far since it is evidence that you have consistently made the right decision.
You are a little piece in a gorgeous ecosystem that is defined by one thing and one thing only: survival. You are a part of the magnificent mystery of existence. Being alive is truly amazing. What a miracle it is that you exist.

I needed to see this just when I found it. So I gave it a reblog over at my new place in case someone else needs to see it too.

I appreciate astronaut Michael Collins’ encouraging message. When we step outside of our normal view of life, our lens just might focus on a new and exciting perspective.
