I realize that I probably mean nothing in the grand scheme of things. The human species is just a speck of dust on the earth’s timeline.
What’s more, the earth is just a speck of dust in what we can see of an infinite space and time. Each one of our existences is just as minuscule as a drop of water in the ocean.
But that doesn’t mean that I don’t matter. It doesn’t mean that you don’t matter. It doesn’t mean that we don’t matter.
This is the life that I’ve got. This is the life I can wrap my head around and understand as long as I don’t dive too deep into contemplation.
This is my opportunity to shine like the brightest star in the sky. I can’t figure out where we came from, what we are here for, or how we were created, but I can take every last breath that I am fortunate enough to breathe, and I will!
I will do my best to better the lives of as many people on this planet as I can. I will do my best to help our natural environment be as pristine and beautiful as possible.
At the rate we are going now, us humans are going to kill ourselves off in time. We are going to beat the earth up so bad that it can’t host us anymore. We’ll all die off if we keep this up, but the earth will heal itself in time and live on.
I don’t know why, but I’ve got this life on planet earth. I love the earth with all my heart but I might love the human race just as much. I think we are amazing creatures and I’d like to see our species continue on.
That is why I’m going to do my part to inspire and educate individuals to start living a life that is beyond themselves and is good for the earth and all the creatures on it, including other humans.
I will do this by living a life, not just for myself but also for the earth, my communities, and all creatures. By treating my fellow beings with respect. By educating myself and as much of the human population as I possibly can. By using my business skills to work on our biggest issues at hand. By pouring my profits into grass root environmental campaigns, non-profits working to create a healthier planet, and environmental activists. By enduring adventures that inspire the masses and raise awareness and consciousness. By having a positive attitude and a big smile on my face. By appreciating and loving everyone and everything.
And with the help of millions of other people.
Together we can clean this world up one good deed, one smile, and one day at a time.
