I just came back from a mini vacation in Hawaii. It was fabulous and I made some observations:
• I’m probably speaking to the choir to those who read my blog but I am amazed by people’s lack of awareness and courtesy towards others, and especially towards the planet.
If you see trash on the beach, please pick it up! It harms the oceans and sea animals. Be cognizant of your belongings and any plastic etc. that you have.
• The people cleaning your room or doing ground work, they’re people, not objects to boss around. Be kind. Say thank you. Show appreciation. It takes but a moment to be courteous.
• Be curious. Ask people questions. I made friends with people and learned new things I wouldn’t have known otherwise. And by friends, I mean, struck up conversations. I didn’t hide in silence. Or my phone!
• Investigate your surroundings and stretch yourself. My friend and I would take little adventures into the unknown to explore. As an example, I’m not big on snorkeling, I get freaked out by fish- silly I know- but I did it to remain open to new things. And I’m so glad I did. We saw some amazing fish.
Awareness, courtesy, curiosity, and stretching yourself: if you go through the world in these energies, you never know what wonders will await you, and you will simultaneously be conscious of your impact on your environment and the people around you. The world has so much to offer, be mindful in your response.
Me, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
