“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”
C. S. Lewis
2014 – Let’s make it our goal to encourage everyone we know to “dream a new dream” in working to save our beautiful planet and all of its miraculous living creatures and amazing life giving plants. We have so many resources, skills, experience, and knowledge – we can put it all to creative use in effecting change.
Anything we have done in the past is over, accolades may have been given, but now it is time to face the biggest most important challenge of all – using whatever resources we have to revise and build new systems so that everyone has a chance to dream, to grow, to flourish.
It is so easy, and indeed, part of the problem, for us to sit back and say, “it’s too late, why bother?” Or to be willfully unaware. As John Lennon said, “Living is easy with eyes closed.” Instead, let us work single-mindedly, without reservation, to research problems and issues, ask important questions, and share our knowledge and skills to rejuvenate and protect our planet earth, no matter what odds are stacked against change. And let’s not leave it to politicians.
Every one of us can make a difference – every day – and in doing so with curiosity, hope, and an open and loving heart we will find along this winding up and down tumultuous path all the challenges, joy, adventure, and love that we could ever want.
Believe in yourself, be kind and loving to yourself – you too are a miracle, and if you look deep inside, and feel the quiet within, you will know it without doubt.
Be the best that you can be, every day – and never ever, give up on your dreams.
Happy New Year!
