There are all sorts of science fiction stories about moving to Mars or living on some other better world that is a currently unknown planet, but as of right now, this world is the only one we have, which is why it’s so important to make sure that we take care of it. Unfortunately unlike most cultures that came before us, most of our generation seems to feel that the earth will always replenish itself, and that we’ll always have ample water and food. This is far from the truth, and is something that we need to recognize. If you want to have a better world, not only for us but also for our children, it’s important that we start taking steps to ensure that it stays healthy.
One of the best ways to get the world to be a better place isn’t to do good and eco-friendly things yourself, even though this is a good thing, but to spread the word to others. If you work on power saving measures, such as shutting off lights when you leave the world and switching to energy efficient bulbs, you’re saving a small piece of the world. Imagine how much you could change if you convinced twenty people to do the same thing, and if those twenty people convinced twenty more people. Before you know it you’ll have an army of people who are trying to create a better world.
But when you’re trying to convince other people to do things like try eco food or trying to teach them how making better terra is important, you have to be careful. If you push too hard they’ll simply think that you’re one of those “crazy” people who wants to change everyone and everything that they see. Instead of being pushy you have to be friendly and suggestive. Show them how much better your life is by doing things that can propagate peace and that can create a better world. Let them see how much your light bill goes down when you put in energy efficient light bulbs or how huge your garden grows when you make your own fertilizer. Once people start to realize how much better your life is, and how much you’re helping the earth, they’ll start to make little changes as well, which can truly make an impact on the world. By simply helping them to see how you’ve made a change, you’ll convince them to create a better world as well.
With the current recession in the world acts of kindness are even more important than ever before. Living life giving without expecting to receive will be rewarded in more ways then just one. People who live this way are normally happier than selfish people. I hear all the time people always saying that nothing ever goes their way, or life is just easy for some and not for them. Is it possible that the people who breeze through life are kind hearted and do things for others without expecting something in return? Some people are naturally giving type people, giving food to people in need, handing change to those who stand on corners asking for help, stopping to give a helping hand to someone who is stranded, all of which are acts of kindness.
Years ago neighbors were closer, always willing to help each other out. It is to bad we have gotten away from this and don’t take the time to be a kind person. lets try and give a helping hand to people in need at these trying times.
