Both politically and environmentally, our climate has changed. If you deny global warming, you have to ask yourself “Why?” If you think that it’s not your job to help those in need, again ask yourself “Why?” I love helping others, it’s what I do, and I do it gladly. Doesn’t it feel good to help a friend in need, or to clean up your neighborhood, or to help educate others? The answer is most likely a resounding “Yes!” Doing good deeds, give us endorphins, and we all know what a great feeling that can be.
I am in fear for our future. More so, my children‘s and grandchildren‘s future. What will be left for them? Will our government make things even worse than they already are, will people kill each other over their beliefs even more freely, will Mother Nature have her way, and finally destroy us all? It’s not unlikely! Fires, earthquakes, floods, tornados, hurricanes… Is this not a clear warning that we need to get our shit together!?! We can all make a difference, and yes it’s a small difference if only one person chooses to… but, if we all try just a lil more fervently, we can at least put a few speed bumps in the middle of what is happening to our world. We are all accountable for what has become of this big blue marble, ALL of us! If we continue to turn a blind eye, and think to ourselves, “This doesn‘t impact me.“ or, “What is my effort worth?“ or, “I‘m just one person, that‘s not going to make any difference!“, you are sadly mistaken! It does impact YOU, your EFFORT is worth Saving Lives, and yes, ONE person will make a difference; because each ONE adds up to many.
I have avoided the news, and politics, most of my life; because they weigh heavily on me. I take too much on, and that eventually impacts my health. I worry, a lot… about everyone, and everything! So it is important that I take these issues on with ease. But, right now, it’s NOT about me, it’s about my family and friends all over the world, dealing with disasters both environmentally and politically! I’m in heartbreak right now over our countries state of being. The ugliness that is erupting from all sides is deplorable! And yes, some are light years WORSE than others. I’m not here to point fingers right now, but I am here to say this…
Please, do your part! No matter how small, or how big, just DO something. The hatred needs to F’n stop! Love is what I choose. So, show a lil compassion, clean up your environment, help out those in need, recycle some things, stop putting yourself above others; we are equals, use a lil less water, show why your side is good; without belittling the other, drive less and ride a bike/walk more, enjoy nature instead of sitting on your computer/phone all day, reach out to loved ones more, pick up that trash on the ground; and place it in the right receptacle, donate to a good cause, say “HI” to your neighbor or call your cashier by name (they’ll smile, I promise), and just be a better YOU overall. If each of us did our part to be BETTER people, the world around us could be a better place to live. These are small things I’ve suggested, because starting with the small things makes the larger things more accessible; hence viewed as possible, instead of impossible.
Love… hug… help… one another!
It’s easier than you think, and it will change you… It will change you in amazing and wonderful ways! This I know. So let’s all Love not Hate, have Compassion not Disillusionment, Lift Up not Tear Down, and we will become better people, whom will leave a better climate, both politically and environmentally, for our children, and our children’s children.
It all begins here. Join me, please!
You are not alone! Love you all 💜💋MJ
