Yesterday we celebrated Earth Day. The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth_Day)…that’s a lot of Earth love!
I happily recycled our bottles, I re-used (as I commonly do) my shopping bags at the grocery stores, I re-filled my coffee cups, I walked to my chosen destinations and I made abundantly clear my gratitude for Mother Earth. That really empowers me.
We live in a beautiful place (Oahu, Hawaii) : sunshine, cool breezes, ocean sounds, smells and sustenance. I am empowered by this beauty. I am grateful to those who came before me and made this once kingdom into part of the USA around 1773 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oahu). This is truly a fascinating place. The forethought of our ancestors really empowers me.
My daughters really empower me. They make me smile, they teach me things and they represent the future. They are keenly aware of our earth’s greatness and sustainability.
My husband inspires and empowers me. He brought us here to improve our lives. It’s beautiful here and we are making amazing progress on many fronts. He shares the riches of island life with us daily.
What shall we all do for the next days, months, years, centuries to continue our Earth’s greatness? We all need to commit to take care of our world. After all, it’s all we have!
What empowers you? Who empowers you?
