A Reason to Look Up
By Glennel Hardy
I find myself at the end of a long day going out on the balcony at night and staring at the moon. I especially love those special nights, when the moon has her evening glow throughout the house. No matter what type of day I experienced I have something that I can look up to at night.
The relationship that I have with the moon is that it remains far from the Earth, and it’s in a world to itself, yet we find a way to connect. It’s beyond the chaos and the current events that surrounds us. It reminds me that there is something to look forward to, and that all is well, and tomorrow begins a brand new day.
The moon also reminds me that during my daily life, on occasion, I will have to lift my head up above the current circumstances, that’s meant to bring me down. I have to remind myself it’s not over, and that I’m here once again to persevere and keep moving forward.
Our universe and nature has a way to remind us there is a reason to look up. If we can find a way to look beyond our current environment, and expand to our outer galaxies, we will find there is more to discover about ourselves. It is then we see and understand why there is “a reason to look up.”
