Today we celebrate this earth, this beautiful place we call home. We spend time reflecting on how we can improve our every day actions to insure this earth thrives in all it’s beauty. Sometimes this can be daunting and overwhelming. How can we find sustainable ways live in a disposal society?
1) Spend time every day in nature. Whether it is a walk or playing in on the beach , hugging a tree or soaking up the sun. The more we connect to this earth on a deep and meaningful level the more we find understanding and compassion for how our every day actions impact this earth. Connection is powerful and needed to set an intention to move to a place of love, respect and appreciation for all this earth selflessly provides us with.
2) Be mindful and intentional in your actions. Everything you do first think about how it impacts the world around you. Everything you purchase, ask yourself “Do I really need this?” Reuse, recycle, share, shop local, thrift, grow your own food, you name it there is a millions of of ways you can cut back and help to support a more sustainable earth. Vote with your dollar by supporting the things you want to change in this world.
3) Find compassion for yourself in this journey. This deeper awareness takes practice and intentional living in a world that is not set up to support that. So do your best each and every day. Know that EVERY little thing you do helps. You don’t have to be “perfect” but instead always moving toward conscious awareness of everything you consume.
Remember we only have one place here to live. Find ways to flow with nature. Support Mother Earth as she has supported you. Find gratitude and appreciation for this amazing place we call home and always strive to leave this place better then we arrive for future generations.
