A reminder to myself,

I’m 19, in my first year of uni and currently in my flat at Sheffield University. I just wanted to make sure you’re still good, moral and understand what responsibility you have.

Earlier this week I was thinking about what the purpose of my life is and came to the sort of conclusion: I think the purpose is to lead the most interesting and most crazy life possible. Travel the world, see the wonders of the world, do extreme sports, study and learn, have children. Anything really, as long as its making me as happy as I can be. The second part is that I have to be good. I have to care. I have to look beyond my little selfish world and make decisions based on how it will affect everything around me. Not everyone does this, so if you can, have the amount of goodness in your heart that two-three people should have combined.

Whatever is going on in your life right now? I hope you’re still doing that. If not, why not? Is your reason really that good that is defends your actions and all its consequences? Look back at how you felt these years that I have lived now. Really try to remember all those feelings that would well up in you every time you saw or thought of all our moral obligations to animals, the world and our friends etc.

I’m vegan, hardly materialistic and trying to improve my carbon footprint. I hope you are too.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often

 

Dear child,

The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.

 

To my dear son Zac,

I promise to raise you as a loving-nature human.

 

I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.

 

Dear future me,

My hopes have always been to live in a brighter and better generation, where women are respected around the world, human rights are respected and last but not least where animals and mother nature is cared for by us individuals.

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

Dear Son,

I hope with effective action to combat this climate change will we have a better world in the future.

 

My darlings, Juno & Vaeda,

You ask insightful questions, and together we learn about the mysterious world we inhabit.

 

For a child I am yet to know,

We are fighting for a shared cause, inspired by our strong and unwavering dedication to preserve the beauty and wonder of our natural world for our children, our grandchildren and their children, and for countless generations to come.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to try to set up crowd funding for grants to people with realistic proposals to fight climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will stop using plastic and will plant trees. I will also not waste water and electricity.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I feel optimistic for you, tomorrow. I can feel a shift happening already.
