Wow 50 Years?

Today is “Earth Day”. And it is celebrating its 50th year since it’s first time being celebrated. I’m not gonna lie… I only started hearing about “Earth Day” a few years ago. It doesn’t mean I don’t care about this planet. It means I didn’t realize or know that there was a day devoted to it. Like a weird “Mother’s Day” for our planet, but forgotten about until it’s upon us.

I’ve generally been pretty good at “doing my part” to keep the earth healthy. Obviously I can’t be prefect because I do need those resources to keep alive and entertained. But treating this planet a bit better each day is very important.

That’s because I kind of enjoy living on this planet. I don’t think there’s many options out there at this time for moving off this planet. So please do your small part to keep this planet of ours healthy and inhabited.

Viewpoint

There is something beautiful about our planet.  From the plants and animals to the people and buildings.  There is so much life here.  Sometimes I forget to enjoy the simpler things as I seek out the extraordinary.  It’s human nature to miss the forest for the trees.  

Seeing the world from a different view.


But there it is.  Life.  The Universe.  And Everything.  All in front of me.  All around me.  All a part of me.  It’s startlingly impressive to be a part of this existence.  Of course I want to see more, experience more, and be more in this life.  

Finding out what it means to be here on this planet seems to be a lifelong journey with no destination.  To me, that is what life is about.  Experiencing the journey.

I’m thankful for all of the adventures I’ve been on so far.  I’m looking forward to the years I still have ahead of me and the musings I will share along the way.
