Can you believe it… I totally missed Earth Day! Me – director of the GREEN Chef Academy! The funniest part is that part of the reason I missed it was because I spent so much time walking in the sunshine + in the garden! Plus on a call with a group of fabulous raw food chefs who are actively making this world even better! I suppose I didn’t totally miss Earth Day! But I would have loved to do something special for it!
So I had this idea bright and early this morning, which I hope you’ll “dig”. hehe.
What about… Earth Day… CONTINUED…?!
For me, personally, I feel like planting new trees is WONDERFUL but really just a good start. And so are reducing, reusing, and recycling. But more important than this, again, for me, is being in an environment that is otherwise healing and lovely.
In my opinion, The Lamest Thing Ever is not plastic on the ground; it’s what I’ll call “emotional pollution”. You know, when we forget that the other people around us are human beings! So included on that list would be stuff like anger, hatred, animosity, impatience, etc.
But on the other side, it tickles me green when we appreciate the awesomeness in the people around us. (News Flash: EVERYONE has awesomeness to appreciate. EVERYONE) Same deal when we open our eyes to the beautiful things that are already happening.
So my idea for Earth Day (CONTINUED) is that we take a moment to honor the beautiful things that already exist in this world. The people who say lovely somethings to us. Or give an encouraging nod at just the right time. The parks that bring us peace. The beaches that bring us freshness. The restaurants that bring us gratitude. ETC.
And… just as a THANK YOU for being part of Earth Day (Continued), I’d like to give you something. Something that my intention was to SELL. A whole flippin’ set of somethings that’s pretty rad (especially if you make use of it!). I don’t know if I’ll keep them up forever, but I feel really strongly that this is a pretty Awesomely Perfect Earth Day Continued kinda gift!
