Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don't. ~ Steve Maraboli via @plant.yourseed .
It's easy to be extreme and put the blame on others for anything; industry needs to reduce waste, people shouldn't litter, it shouldn't be so easily available if it's bad for my health/ the planet / animals / other people. How can anyone expect me to make a change when I'm not the worst of the bunch?
Yes, the reality is you cannot directly change these things and you probably are a Saint compared to some, but why bask in continuous mediocrity when it truly isn't doing anything for you. Are you really fulfilled/ healthier/ wealthier for it? Don't you want to come out better? .
Well, you don't have to live a resigned life, you can change your behaviour and that much is true, some of it may be easy and some hard, but who cares?! Stop only seeing an end goal. It's not all or nothing and you're here now, whether you like it or not. Focus on enjoying the process, be a positive blip in our history, humankind depends on it. Take baby steps, anyone can try, even you and that is what counts.
Bit by bit, start to hold companies accountable, cut them off, refuse to spend your money there and communicate it to others. Create less waste; food, items, packaging, energy, money. Pick up rubbish you see and be seen doing it, raise awareness, it's not your rubbish...but it is your planet. Have a look at your purchases; food, clothes, tourism; are they fair to you, to others, to animals, to the environment that supports us?
Don't take my word for it. Start by asking more questions, begin informing yourself, instead of following, believing, accepting anything and damaging your freedom. Freedom to clean air, clean water, clean food, clean health, clean clothing, clean environment. You can take responsibility for your knowledge, let it grow and the rest will fall in to place. .
