Any Public Issue Will Eventually Make it to your Private Door

Any public issue will get to your private door eventually. If we are messing with the environment it will eventually affact you and so the list goes on. Marianne Willamson

 

There is so much going on in the world right now, from hurricanes wiping out islands, to leaders who respond like they aren't leading, to mass shootings, to killing black folks and the list goes on and on till the break of dawn

It is enough to get one disjointed, disappointed and anxious. Truth be told I am at that point. Wht next? I have decided that I must contribute to the solution, I have no clue what THE solution is but I know what my solution is- to be the best me, to make where I am better than when I found it, to stop being selfish, to live as though there are other people and living beings on the planet. Simple things I am starting with

recycling - there is no obvious and convenient ways to recyle where I live

using less plastic bags

giving to charity both financial and time

be my best - do my best - be kind- set boundaries- hae fun- pay my taxes

that's me

what about you?

 

Peace
