Reaching for the Moon

The moon is such an inspiration for me that I decided to make it the center of my logo. Each time I see it I am reminded to dream big ... to take action to make those dreams come alive. Moon Logo for Girard Illustration © 2016 by Kristen Girard.

When you look at the moon, what do you see? 

I see inspiration. 

There is just something grandly creative and inspirational about watching the moon shine in the sky accompanied by the dance of stars. For some reason I don't quite understand yet, just looking at the moon makes me feel more creative. 

Perhaps it is because the moon pulls the tides, lures us into sleep, and guides the creatures of the night, including artists, and their inquisitive cats. To me, the moon has become where inspired dreams and creativity come from. ( Not literally ... but you know what I mean in the greater sense of being alive. ) 

It could be the simple mystery of the moon that inspires and fuels the imagination. It shines brightly, yet we never see the dark side of the moon. Maybe it is this mystery that inspires my imagination to take flight.

Perhaps the imagination finds refreshment in the changes the moon makes every month. As the moon changes, we are reminded that we, too, can change. We can allow ourselves to grow and become the best we can be in all facets of our lives. Doing what makes us feel whole, healthy, and happy is a truly good practice to do.

When we feel whole, healthy, and happy, we are free.

Free to be creative.

Free to imagine.

Free to make our dreams a reality.

Free to simply be ourselves.

On a dark night, when our spirits may be low, the moon can serve as a guiding light to remind us that we are not alone. That are others in the world, including you, who can't help but gaze up at the moon and feel a little bit of uplifting natural magic. Perhaps you also wonder what it might be like to leap up on the wings of imagination and explore the mysterious side of the moon.

As a source of inspiration, the moon can serve as a rallying cry to not let our troubles weigh us down. To rise out of the shadows of the world, and shine bright among the stars as we strive to be the best we can be and create a world together where all forms of life are valued, appreciated and honored. 

Let's make dreams come alive into adventures we cherish, together.

How will you rise up and reach for the moon?
