WONDERMENT WEDNESDAY


ImageAfter being stuck at home yesterday, eh, I mean after choosing to work from home yesterday while recovering from a root canal procedure I had on Monday, I found myself enthralled in the Science Channel’s program entitled “How The Universe Works”. I was blown away by how small my comprehension of space was.  But equally delighted in the realization of how big my God is.  Absolutely mindblowing.

My point for this WONDERMENT WEDNESDAY is this:

A light year is about (I’ve rounded off a bit) 5,878,786,100,000 miles. That’s almost 6 trillion miles that a beam of light travels in one year.

The distance from the earth to the Sun is 93 million miles.

The distance to the nearest star is 4.3 light years.

The distance to the Andromeda galaxy is 2 million light years.

The universe is a big place !

Given the fact that a human is probably smaller than the size of a sub-atomic particle/quantum particle in the entirety of the universe, puts our lives and experiences and worries and problems here on earth, in an extremely infinitesimal reality.  What is one thing you can do today, to let go of worry or anxiety and truly appreciate all the good in your life?

(I may be grasping at the connection I am trying to make, but my comprehension of space is smaller than a sub-atomic particle – humor me here.)

About amidean

An entrepreneur with 20 years experience, Ami most recently started the newest addition to her business family, The Rally Point. As the CEO & Mailroom Clerk at The Rally Point, Ami oversees Operations, Sales, Marketing and well, um, the mailroom. After starting WithIn, Inc. (an employee training and development firm) in 2005, she found herself repeatedly asked by her clients to find them a venue with a more inspiring and creativity provoking environment than the saltine cracker hotel room or in-house training room. Frustrated that she couldn't fill her clients requests (simply because it didn't exist in the market) she, being the customer service fanatic she is, created it for them. Ami holds her MBA but she truly feels her greatest accomplishment is being a living example of work/life harmony and to make that work - "You've gotta get creative!' she says. Ami has always felt that if fun couldn't be part of her job responsibilities, she just wouldn't fit the culture. "Now, I laugh, play and am truly able to create the perfect environment for those teams, businesses and organizations that need to incorporate fun into their meetings to boost creativity, production, morale and inspiration. My job rocks and so does The Rally Point, I mean, have you seen this place?" Fiercely passionate about her faith, her three daughters, and the MiAMI Dolphins, Ami still finds time to enjoy sitting on the Boards of Easter Seals of LaSalle and Bureau Counties and Women in Leadership of Central Illinois, shopping, interior design and traveling.
