I am feeling weary. I might be hitting a wall. I am so excited to keep making all these green changes in my life, but, I kinda feel all alone. I want a green friend.
In short, it is not easy being green (I couldn’t resist):
Seriously though, I have been unsuccessful in even finding another blogger who is doing what I am doing, feeling what I am feeling. Most environmental blogs that I see are all new-sy, bringing us the latest developments in green energy, green tech, green politics. There is very little in the way of green living, day by day, and the challenges involved. Perhaps those bloggers are out there, but I have not found them yet.
The hardest part has not been air drying the laundry or turning down the thermostat (I am actually getting used to the chill now!) or any of the other green changes that I have been making. It has been the feeling alone part. When I go out into the world I see all the consumerism and idling cars and lunch garbage. All these people obviously don’t feel the same way that I do. I despair that being alone in this process means that we have such an uphill climb ahead of us. What if we are not able to all do this thing, change, and save ourselves?
What if people are too selfish?
In the end, it must be the love we have for each other that will propel us to change. There will be no other way. We must find the love in our hearts, to act to save each other and future generations. It will take community building on a massive scale. It will take the coming together of the entire world, all acting for the common good to get this thing done. We have never seen this before in the history of humankind. Can we even do it? Is it even possible?
Achieving this, I believe, will signal a new level of human advancement.
Won’t it be amazing?We are the world We are the children We are the ones to make a brighter day So let’s start giving
Look what this group of people did together for Haiti:
This stuff brings tears to my eyes everytime. There are good people in the world, we do love each other. We must hold on to hope.
