I started this blog with much gusto, writing article after article with all my heart. The problem began when I started saving them as ‘Drafts’ instead of hitting ‘Publish’.
“I’ll work on that later, I’ll post this next week, this isn’t good enough, it probably won’t make a difference, nobody will notice”, and soon it was a year later and then two.
2017 was the last time I posted about my environmental habits, but it definitely wasn’t the end of that journey. I continue to live a “low-impact” lifestyle, as the terminology goes. But I prefer to look at my life not just as a low impact* on the environment, but rather as a high impact on the people, places, plants and animals around me. One that drives change, is a blessing, and yes, makes a difference.
So here I begin again, with a string of posts not just retelling the funny incidents that occurred with my many failed attempts, but also the ripple effect I’ve been able to create through them and ways in which you can too, just by being you!
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill that cannot be hidden. People don’t light a lamp and put it under a bowl, instead they put it on a stand and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others..”
*Living a low-impact lifestyle is to take steps toward reducing your footprint and lowering the negative effect your choices have on the environment.
