Did you ever have one of those weekends where you feel invigorated? Inspired for change? As I enjoyed a beautiful Thanksgiving weekend in Banff with my family soaking up the scenery, hiking the trails, and cooking the turkey. I jotted this quickly down in my journal:
It was one of those moments where I felt truly content with my life. But it was also one of those turning points in my life when I realized that I have taken granted one of the most beautiful gifts man has and that is nature.
I avoid the topic of environmentalism like a child. I hear Suzuki on the radio and I turn him off. I’m like a child who doesn’t want to hear the truth. I stomp my feet and plug my ears. Pretending I can’t hear or see what is going on with our environment.
So, today is the day, I take the first step to pledge to do something different, each week, I will make a small change to my family’s lifestyle, which will improve our carbon footprint. I would love to change everything over night. But I’m not that brave.
So, first on the agenda, I vow as of today, that I will recycle, and separate my trash like a Type A at Christmas!
But I also want help from my few readers! That means you! I need tips and tricks! So, each week I will add something new, to improving my green lifestyle! I want to stay honest with myself and to be held accountable for staying green. I will also post the nitty, gritty, dirty truth, about my green habits, what works, and what work doesn’t work; for a slacker such as, myself.
