Dear future children,

As your mother, all I am asking is for your well-being and a healthy lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle should include a minimal way of living. Avoid being consumeristic and learn to live with nature. As a daughter who’s both fathers were business men, and a mother who dedicated her life to farm and take care of her families children. I am happy to say I have learnt both ends of spectrum what life can mean when you don’t have and when you suddenly have everything in life. That does not mean money only, but a loving and supportive family. I assure all of you my babies, to live a life that is sustainable and be conscious of your actions. Always protect what you have and that is the earth you live in and your future children will live in.
Love you all!

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.
