What’s your favourite place to go in nature?

Do you have a favourite park or forest or place in nature you like to visit?  What makes that place so special? 

Is it the deep smell of the trees or the beauty of the flowers?  The sweet songs from the birds or the salt air that caresses your skin?  Or is it the sound the forest makes when you listen to the little critters that make it their home?

I find it hard to pick just one as they all fill my heart with joy.

But what if you were no longer able to take in this extraordinary healing energy that nature provides?

Last month I wrote a special blog about the repercussions of not honouring Mother Earth.  I shared a phrase I heard that really stuck with me that said “there is no planet B”.  We are truly living the consequences of past choices up close and personal.  It’s time to help our Mother and all her creations.

As this is the last blog in my month-long joy habit series from Chapter 32 – Be Helpful of my book Being Joy™, I am challenging you to find one thing that you can do this week that will help the animals, the birds, the ocean, the forests, green spaces, or any other living thing that we must learn to steward in a more sustainable way.

Pick just one.  Then focus on what you can do to make a difference.

It’s time to stop complaining about climate change and the loss of flora and fauna as each decade goes by. We must take inspired action now in order to help heal the damage that has already been done.

So, the decision is yours. 

You can either lead, follow, or get out of the way because one way or another, we must do better.

P.S.  I’ve always loved this quote by the famous American cultural anthropologist, Margaret Mead.  I share it with my sincere call for inspired action. “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
