If you took a shower once a year, you would probably stink and look disheveled, is that fair to say?
So why do we only make a big to-do about taking care of the planet once a year?
COuldn’t we all stand to make a more concentrated effort to take care of our home – not the one with a roof and 4 walls, but the one that houses EVERYTHING and EVERYONE (except the Martians – they like Mars!)
No one is perfect, but is there maybe 1 or 2 things you could do to help clean up the planet, reduce the stress on her, make it a better place that stays beautiful for generations to come?
The compound effect tell us that small efforts, applied consistently, makes a big impact, so maybe today is the day you start using reusable shopping bags (such pretty designs!), or getting a reusable coffee cup for your daily dose of java (I LOVE my bright turquoise one), or maybe you switch all your plastic food storage to Glass (much easier to clean, too!) or something else… there is no shortage of ways. you can make an impact!
To quote my good friend Jeanine, “we can be sad about it or we can make a change”! I challenge you to make Earth Day EVERY day, and I look forward to hearing what changes you implemented!
My new reusable coffee cup! So bright and pretty.
Look, do I think I can heal the world single-handedly? Of course I don’t.
But I can do MY part. And this small measure means 365 fewer plastic cups and straws existing forever in a landfill!
All steps have an impact – YOU have an impact!
As we have entered the 4th quarter of the year, the one that is ripe with holidays and additional expenses, I invite you to ask yourself if YOU could use additional income to offset the additional expenses?
That’s one of the many perks of doing something that I LOVE – I get PAID to do it, which in addition to paying off debt, gives me EXTRA money for the holidays, so I can do more good and make more people’s holiday’s C O U N T.
It’s a blessing that I can be EARNING this INCOME without having to work INSANE hours at retail (I do NOT miss that at all – I did it for TOO MANY years!)
Giving back really is the best thing to receive!
When you walk through a store or down the street, do you greet people you come across? I used to always have my face down, no eye contact made, and just doing my thing… but about a year ago, I started looking up, making eye contact, smiling, and saying hello, and it’s so simple, but makes you feel so good.
There are tons of things that wouldn’t even exist if not for someone saying hello – you might never have talked to your spouse, you may never have met your best friend, you may never have come across the business partner with which you created an awesome company…
For me, someone looking to help people change their lives, and the world, it starts with saying HELLO. Without greeting people, the relationship will never begin to build, and that’d be quite a pity.
Go out and say HELLO.
