Here in Langley (not Burnaby, not Vancouver, not Mission… Just Langley) there are people who seem uncomfortable with my avoiding plastic, ethically sourcing meat and never purchasing single-use cups or bottled water. I flow through life hearing why reducing and reusing is time consuming, why vegetarians are bad for the planet (I’m not vegetarian) and receive many a spiel on protein consumption (I’m still not vegetarian).
I don’t engage much in these conversations. I just listen and continue in my awareness of what I know is right. And then, this morning… I receive an email from the Kootenay Ecosociety:
16 municipalities in Canada have committed to transition to 100% renewable energy by 2050.
My heart radiates. I happen to be from the Kootenay’s — and eight of these municipalities are in the Kootenay’s.
I am reminded of who I am and where I’m coming from. I remember all those who have shared with me, “you are making an impact, keep doing what you are doing.” This is another affirmation (upon many previous affirmations) that following my heart and knowing IS the right thing. I am still making an impact and I will continue to reduce, reuse and follow my ethics.
Here is the link to the news from the West Kootenay Ecosociety.
