Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day!

This is the first year where I’m actively trying to do some good towards our planet. I went to Container Store today & bought reusable bags, bento boxes, & reusable sporks. I think this is gonna be a great turn around in my life. As I said yesterday, I don’t want to be wasteful anymore. I want to use what I have & use just enough. Not too much, not too little. Minimalism at its finest!

The woman who was ringing me up asked if it was okay if she put my kitchen items in a larger bin I was using so that she didn’t need to use a plastic bag. “YES! That’s exactly what I wanted to do!” I said it just like that LOL. Thankfully, she smiled & nodded like she totally agreed with me. She seemed proud. Solidarity sisters!

I’m excited to see what kind of change I can make in this coming year. Even if I only switch out cleaning products & lunch items, I believe I’m still making a difference. šŸ™‚

And now, one of my favorite songs that fully encapsulates how I feel…

“Dreamer” by Ozzy Osbourne

And because he’s hard to understand, here are the lyrics šŸ˜‰

ā™Ŗ Gazing through the window at the world outside
Wondering will Mother Earth survive
Hoping that mankind will stop abusing her, sometime

After all, there’s only just the two of us
And here we are still fighting for our lives
Watching all of history repeat itself, time after time

I’m just a dreamer, I dream my life away
I’m just a dreamer, who dreams of better days

I watch the sun go down like everyone of us
I’m hoping that the dawn will bring a sign
A better place for those who will come after us, this time

I’m just a dreamer, I dream my life away oh yeah
I’m just a dreamer, who dreams of better days

Your higher power maybe God or Jesus Christ
It doesn’t really matter much to me
Without each other’s help, there ain’t no hope for us
I’m living in a dream of fantasy, oh yeah yeah yeah!

If only we could all just find serenity
It would be nice if we could live as one
When will all this anger, hate, and bigotry be gone?

I’m just a dreamer, I dream my life away (today)
I’m just a dreamer, who dreams of better days (okay)
I’m just a dreamer, who’s searching for the way (today)
I’m just a dreamer, dreaming my life away (oh yeah yeah yeah) ā™Ŗ
