Carl Sagan once said that human beings are like butterflies who flutter for a day, and think it is forever…

… Compared to the life span of the universe, our lives begin and end in a single day.

I have come to understand it this way.

The stars aren’t just balls of gas burning billions of miles away. They are also a reminder of the brief time we share on this planet.

… time and distance are the heart’s natural enemies. 

Everyone we meet, everyone we love, how we got here, what path we choose, and who we choose to remember, they are all a part of our story.

But we cannot allow the story to be written for us. Because we don’t have forever. 

Sometimes all we have is a single day.”
