Many small steps can still take you places.
Since this is my first post I’ve been trying to think of something really big and great and eye catching which has lead to much procrastination and tossing jumbled ideas round and round my brain.
But as I was burying myself beneath the covers this morning praying the heater would kick on (it’s finally fall here in the southwest and freezing-brrr!!!),it occurred to me that perhaps the same sort of thing happens to some people (namely me) when they are thinking of trying to live a more green and sustainable life. We all hear about “going green” and “better for the environment” and frankly they all just kind of start to sound cliche and unreachable. After you hear something so often you start to tune it out, especially when the project seems insurmountable or out of reach (at least according to my former psych professor). And of course, there is so much information out there it’s really hard to know what is actually the right thing to do sometimes, which leads us back to doing nothing. Case in point, I’ve been trying to write this first post for two weeks. But it’s like I always tell DH about getting up in the morning, “It’s always making that’s first movement that’s the hardest ,but once you get going you realize it’s not that hard.” I think my old high school science teacher would call it inertia. I call it God helping those who help themselves.Have you taken any new green steps lately? Would love to hear about them.
