This piece is long and emotional because the earth is my home, and I like my home, don’t you?! It’s emotional because I’m not doing enough. I know I’m not doing enough so I’m feeling guilty. Hence the conscience Irking situation. I hope I’m not the only one with sleepless nights over this. I hope I’m not the only one who acknowledges being a citizen of this planet.
I know some of you are wondering what I do for this cause, I recycle, it’s very small scale but it’s something and I donate to the redress tree planting campaign. All that isn’t enough but I’ll do better, I have to because I know better. Not doing better would be ignorant of me and I’ve never cared for an ignorant person have you?!
Okay let’s summarize this, I’m not taking shorter showers for anything and neither should you guys. The best thing we can do is walk when we can walk, use public transportation when we can, carry a reusable bag to the supermarket and plant trees. That’s all you have to do. Let me put that in bullet form to make certain you don’t forget. At this point in time there are 7 billion people on the planet. Imagine if all of us planted one tree each, how many trees would that be?! 7 billion that’s right. Do you think that would make a difference?!
Ways to love our planet 🌍
• Plant trees
• Use reusable shopping bags
• Use public transportation
• Walk and bike more
• Preserve the trees around you.
I was having a conversation with myself this morning as I was making my cup of mocha and this is important because the coco can, the plastic one I’m sure you’re all familiar with I felt as though it was talking to me. I don’t know how many of you have a conscience, I used to believe everyone had one but then if that were the case then people who litter would not exist. But they do. So obviously not everyone has a conscience.
Well of late mine has been Irking me, Irking at me hard and without resilience so I have to shade email these thoughts with my beloved readers. I have a question for you, all of you, how many of you are aware about global warming?! I would assume most of you if not all of you right?! Well what are you doing about it?! Are you doing anything to remedy the situation?! There is this quote that used to hang on our wall, it always made me laugh when I was little but as I got older it became less and less funny to me, instead it made me think. I’m thinking I have mentioned it in another one of my articles but I’m not 100% sure it was in this blog site or my other one. The quote went “Are you here with the solution or are you part of the problem?!”
That might very well be my favorite quote. Not just because it can be applied to a plethora of situations but also because it causes an inward evaluation of character. Well speaking for myself at least. What kind of person I’m I?! What kind of person are you?! Are you with the complaining and whining team or are you with the problem solving team?! You can’t just answer for the heck of it, you must have supporting evidence. If you are with the supporting team then you are doing something or a number of things to remedy the situation and the people around you can speak to this as well, but if no one can corroborate your view of yourself then you’re obviously playing for the other team.
