And Then, Something Wonderful Happened…
Have you noticed the level of crazy in the world has grown exponentially over the last few months? And that’s an increase over the crazy of the last few years.
Right now, there are protests going on around the world in Hong Kong, Chile, Indonesia, France, Peru, Haiti, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Israel, even the Netherlands, and more if you count the climate change protests that happened last month, and while each group is protesting for different reasons, at heart, they are all looking toward the same thing: an improved way of life.
But, you say, this is the #WATWB Friday. We don’t want to hear about world protests and climate change sagas. We want some good news.
To which I reply, okay then, here it is, as reported by mbglifestyle — mbg for mind, body, green — and that is, 19 good things to happen for the planet so far in 2019. Ready? Here they are:
Regeneration; plastic pollution ban; plastic bag ban; children leading the way on climate change; Puerto Rico goes renewable; reusable packaging; “Park” prescriptions; carbon-neutral online shopping; Yosemite National Park in the spotlight; solar and wind gain in popularity; upgrading the ingredients we put into our bodies; Burger King’s meatless burger; fashion resale retail on the rise; Finland phases out coal; NYC’s meatless Mondays; electric ride-sharing; 17 million more trees to be planted; U.S. National Parks for the win; and a gorgeous magazine devoted to climate change!
This list was compiled way back on Earth Day, April 22, so imagine how much more has happened since then.
And there you have it, cultural change one protest, one company, one idea at a time. We can’t be worried about tracking dirt into the foyer while the rest of the house burns to the ground — which seems to be the concern, the foyer, that is, of practically all governments everywhere — can we? So let’s get busy supporting all these new initiatives for a cleaner, greener us.
As Abraham-Hicks says in Ask and It Is Given, “there’s never a crowd on the leading edge.” But, oh how wonderful it can be when the crowd catches up and a real cultural shift occurs?
That’s where we are now, people, as chaotic as it may seem on a day-to-day basis — on the verge of a cultural shift. Just keep on changing one old outdated idea at a time and know that it’s going to work out.
And then, something wonderful happened. We all came to our senses and lived our best lives. All of us. Together.
It’s the last Friday of the month and that means it’s time for the We Are the World blogfest, #WATWB.
