I have been absent from this site for a while, all of 2018 to be exact, and I have missed posting. I will be active throughout 2019 and hope that those of you who follow this site will return to check it out again and I look forward to new people finding their way to the site. My ultimate goal has not changed – to highlight positive news, information, trends, and ideas in the area of sustainability, spiritual ecology, Fair Trade, social justice, and living in alignment with the natural world for a healthy planet and all species.
My goal for 2019 though is to follow Brene Brown’s very inspiring words above to ensure that I keep my values as the guiding principle of all my actions. When we follow our values, the ones that are true to us and in alignment with our deepest self, we will always make the correct choice for ourselves and bring our best to the situation. Regret occurs when we have acted out of alignment with who we are, is not present or aware, and does not bring harmony. As noted it takes Courage to have Integrity but life is small when we do not act with courage and integrity. Another favourite quote for me is “Life expands or contracts in proportion to one’s courage” by Anais Nin. Both of these women provide words of wisdom for what we need to do and what the world needs in 2019. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
