Big things—and even the small, unnoticeable positive things—happen when you trust yourself and BELIEVE. Sometimes it comes in the form of someone else believing in you first, like a family member, friend, teacher, or co-worker. Other times, it’s simply knowing that you got this. Believing is how goals are reached, rockets are built, and how work gets done. With reverence and respect for efforts made, the rewards go as deep as still water and as high as the sky.
The sun, the moon and the stars are yours.
A sunny beach day, shady hiking trail, or counting satellites and falling stars at night are gifts to you. When things slow down and you can take a moment to reflect on what’s more important than these heavenly treasures and love, the moon in all its spectacular splendor is a present no one can replicate.

This summer, the historic Apollo 11 mission that landed humans on the moon for the first time, turned 50 on July 20. I’ve been celebrating most of the month through news reports and researching the history of the program with the help of my favorite podcast, as well as at the local astronaut parade in Cocoa Beach.
It’s fun and exciting to hear and see the vintage footage and educational interviews—a reminder that teamwork makes the dream work. Inspiring to us all.
This isn’t a clear comparison, but I’m sure once the astronauts took off, they had a LOT of work in front of them, and when they landed in the ocean safely, it may feel (on a much smaller scale) like how most of us do after working hard all year and catching a summer break. We can only imagine.
Flying high aboard a spaceship isn’t something we all get to do, but we all get to live vicariously through bold humans and perhaps be a little bolder too.
As we courageously go about our days and then take a breather, a cannon ball in the pool, a jump off the diving board, a drive with the window open, is refreshing. A grateful splashdown!
Way To Go
A sleek race car or useful minivan
A spinning dashboard fan
Keep it simple, order up an Uber
Be a straight scooter
Opt to stroll around
Take the subway underground
You might trip up for a Porsche
Take the bus, heck naw
Go high with a jet plane
Keep at it, stay in your lane
Roll up a book in your back pocket
Ride an imaginary space rocket
Your choice, can’t top it
Summer escapes, you rock it
Going on a trip or hopping a plane for a summer break might not be earth shaking like a Saturn Rocket, but there’s a beautiful feeling of gratitude for the days of hard work that got you to a place where you can throw your arms up to the sky and say thank you.
