Dear Future Explorers,

I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit? It’s hard to answer a question about something that means so much to you but also plays such large role to your existence. It’s so easy to continue to live your life almost as if this Earth isn’t as important as it really is. It’s easy to feel big; I work, I laugh, I love, I learn. My life impacts so many people every day because of my actions and my choices.

The reason the environment means so much to me is because of the small but big role that we play in it. It’s humbling for me to realize that in the grand scheme of things, on this planet there are so many other people, other animals, other lives that are apart from mine. They pass me on the streets and continue on with their lives that I have no idea about, but they are also striving for their own goal. The choices that I make impact them too.

Throughout the amount of time that I spend on this Earth, I choose what I want my mark to be. To me, I want to promise that this Earth will be preserved, as beautiful and as breathtaking at it is for me to be on it now. Our home has been here for billions of years before us and will continue to be here for billions of years after us. How we fit into that storyline is determined by our actions now. I hope that my generation leaves their mark on the preservation of this land, and I hope that your generation will be as passionate about its beauty. I promise I will do everything I can for you to have something to be passionate for.

Looking forward, feeling the entire weight of the world on our shoulders, we need to realize our humble place on this Earth. How everything you do, everything you have, is because of this beautiful pale blue dot. Love it. Cherish it. There’s so much to love, there’s so much to give love to so I hope you explore this Earth and find joy in it.

Stay Lovely,

Nicole
