I am witnessing climate change in a way that I do not like, and I do not know how can I stop it.

To my unborn children, hey it’s mummy Cris here!

My dearest lovelies,

I’m writing this message from year 2017. I hope we can read it together, enjoying the beauties of nature hopefully unpolluted. I’m so happy to have had the opportunity to write to you in this way and to send you this letter, still viewing the natural landscapes of mother heart and observing how people are treating her.

Since my childhood I have been respectful for the environment, I tried not to waste things, food, water and I was quite resolute in my food choice, for example by avoiding much industrial stuff, milk and by eating a lot of vegetables. I cannot explain why, but I always wanted to nourish myself in the most natural way possible. I loved to spend my time with animals, especially dogs, horses and rabbits, and I was really sad when your grand granny killed our chicken to have meat. I enjoyed staying out in the garden and I was off thinking of going to places in nature, the mountains, the seas and the woods. I was attracted to all the natural cosmetics, food, magazines and natural healing methods that I found. This is because I knew deeply that we are one with Mother Earth and we must respect her and all her creatures.

Please have a look how the Native American fought to protect their lands and follow their attitude. Be kind to each creature you meet and do not be afraid to show yourself taking care of the earth. Recycle everything you can, buy your food and your personal stuff with awareness. Give this awareness to your own children and lead them to be respectful for what is on earth.

I am witnessing climate change in a way that I do not like, and I do not know how can I stop it. I suffer every winter when I realize that the temperature is too hot, I am scared to not have enough water and I am concerned about the quality of food I am eating. But through my yoga education and my will to write I am making people conscious about their decisions. I am telling women to use reusable pads instead of tampons and to buy recycling goods and to reduce their plastic waste. I am telling them to go and buy in shops without packaging. I am suggesting avoiding chemical stuff for their cosmetics and to try the natural ones. I am telling people to trust their sensations and to have a look at their personal lifestyle and diet, to reduce milk and meat consumption and to use the bicycle more for short distances.

Because each of us matters and if each of us does our best we can really improve our environment!

This is my small contribution to your education, please take it with you and think of it every time you need to. Go to a lake and look at the sun, or at the moon waxing or waning, like me in the picture.

with much love,

your mum

Oi Luc,

Estou esperando ansiosa sua chegada pra que a gente possa fazer muitas coisas boas juntos, uma delas, é cuidar bem do nosso planeta.

 

Dear Hailey and Lily,

We know about this. If we don’t fix this for you, it’s our fault.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise when I start my baking franchise, I will reduce pollution made by it as much as physically possible.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

To My Future Child(ren),

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

To the future generations,

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear Rosie,

But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to educate myself and others about how we can protect and nourish our 1 PLANET

 

Dear Finn and Cy,

I think a lot about what you might be like when you grow up and about what kind of world you will live in.

 

Dear Lincoln,

I wanted to let you know that in 2019 that there were real struggles with the health of our planet.

 

Dear Me of Tomorrow,

I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.
