Just wanted to wish all a Happy Earth Day!
For me personally I needed to do it, because honestly with the state of the world right now, I somehow feel my responsibility as a human being crushing down on me now and then, so I thought I’d take a breath and remind myself as well as everyone else that you have to take these things one day at a time, even when it feels like time is running out. Sometimes saving the world and shouldering the telling of a massive story can come to the same thing, especially when reality gets in the way of casual dreaming. So whatever you’re trying to accomplish and it seems at the moment impossible, don’t feel ashamed when you have a moment of weakness and end up spending a day off watching a TV show or movie (like I did today). It’s all part of the quarter life crisis too I suppose, but nevertheless, just don’t forget about the important stuff. If you have to, write a blog post about it just to get your gnawing reflections out of your system, and reemerge into the fight renewed.
Now that I’ve put this all down, I feel better about myself already! (And perhaps I can come up with a new strategy to deal with the daily onslaught of emails from well-meaning, Earth justice groups without feeling guilty. :D)
