Be the change 


This world seems to have lost its mind yet again. We have massive hurricanes, we have floods, we have fires, we have war, we are still battling Covid and now his nasty little brother. 


We still are dealing with racism, with political bullshit, wearing masks vs not wearing them. Everyone is fighting, picking sides, making things even worse. Yes, we have spun out of control and the earth is responding. Do you know that the year we were on lockdown how much the earth healed? The pollution rate was the lowest we had ever seen in our lifetime. We had a resurgence of animal breeding that didn't happen in years, our waters became less toxic and our fish bred. We saw animals walking on the streets not having to be corded off to the small land that we left them by stealing all of their land.


We also healed ourselves by realizing what was important, family and friends, not work or money or likes. We got time to spend time, real time with our kids, to go outside, to ride bikes, take walks, see...really see nature and what we've been missing.


It gave all of us time to think, to ask is this fulfilling me? Is this my purpose? My passion? Is this the person I want to spend my life with? All kinds of questions were coming up because we actually had time to sit and reflect. 


I love technology but there were so many things better in the dinosaur days. We ran outside from morning till night, no phones just streetlights telling us to go home and even then we didn't want to. We had dinner every night with our families, we didn't need a "special day" to remind us to do that. We didn't watch TV during dinner unless you wanted to get your head slapped off. We had time to reflect and think but now everything and everyone even people we don't know, are pulling on us. Social media with people we don't know and sometimes don't even like, tell us what to look like or dress like. Who the fuck are they? Social influencers, please more like Shepards leading the flock to death.


We are losing control of ourselves, and our world and this is why all these things are happening. We only care about the money, not the climate, not the earth or the animals because we feel so all powerful. That we can do whatever, whenever we want with no consequences. But there are always consequences for our actions.


So today my friends remember we, one person at a time can make a change. You can make a decision to make the world a better place. To be the new "influencers" to care about health, about the environment, mental health, the poor, the elderly not just about how big your ass is. All it takes is one person to take a stand, to write about it, speak about it and it is then that change comes and like I say at the end of every blog…
