The movers are coming today, June 17th, at 8am. It is 1 am in the morning.
Here I sit on the verge of our move from a home we’ve lived in since Emma was 2 years young. She’s 7 now and we are taking the biggest leap of our lives, moving to Thailand.
We’ve sold all the big items. We’ve donated a ton. Recycled another ton. And yet, here I sit in this home with what seems to be another ton of stuff.
I’m sick to my stomach. I’m guilty. I’m uncomfortable. I’m ashamed. Why? you may wonder! It’s simple. If our little family who appears to be quite conscientious about living small and living green, have accumulated this much STUFF, I have a hard time even imagining for the rest of the world and those without a conscience.
I just want to cry. I am overwhelmed and saddened by how mindlessly we have consumed. Though we have tried our very best to recycle and donate to the needy, we still accumulated a ton of trash that will surely end up in a landfill adding insult to an already damaged Mother Earth.
Forgive us. We will do better. We need to do better. There are NO excuses.
Message to Emma: Be mindful. Be kind to Mother Earth.
We Say NO to the Status Quo.
Live Small. Live Green. Give Large. Take Little.
Take Notice. Take Action.
