Lawns of green grasses and romances under the green trees, with lakes flowing beautifully beside. Happiness in everything green. So where is all this green we imagine? Where are all the trees and meadows that we envision in our digital world? Where have they all gone?
Let’s go green, make the environment greener, plant more trees- all advertised on pamphlets and boards trying to seek attention from the spectators, who might be willing to take a glance. But how many act on it? Each and every one of us push the responsibility onto the other and play ‘pass the ball’, with nature’s destruction following each pass.
We talk and spread awareness about what exactly? Climate change, global warming, melting of ice. Well it’s for those environmentalists to take care of, isn’t it? Why should we bother? It is long overdue for us to have realized, the potential of each individual contributing to this earth as much as he derives from it.
Small acts of kindness directed to the planet we inhabit is all that it takes. Don’t throw the trash on the streets. Save that plastic bag for a future use. Try to walk where you can. Don’t throw those papers until they have been completely utilised. Recycle on a daily basis. Make it a habit. No one is asking one person to fix it all. But doesn’t it all start with that single person? Do right and the others will follow.
Habit is made in trying and not in waiting for the right moment.
The insignificant thing (or hoped to be one) that keeps our life together – money. It influences our lives in many ways. With the huge amount of wealth flowing in for some specific group of people, cities and richness have been created. And then, there are the people who inhabit these places and positions. The perfectly perfect individuals who go about their life as monotonously as possible. They like perfection and they gravitate to making it happen at all costs.
Pretend to be someone they are not. Wear and spend more than what they can afford. Be and act to be a person that they are not. Keep up the facade of perfection for all to see. They try their best to be someone they are definitely not. Make sure to stay on trend, nevertheless of the circumstances they are in. Materialism is outstreched to its indefinite depths for these pitiful creatures. They kill their mind and soul in trying to achieve something that is out of their reach.
Originality and uniqueness is losing its touch. It is not encouraged to stand out but to blend in. Be what everyone else is and in this process they lose themselves. ‘Fake it till you make it’ is a good proverb for acheiving specific personal goals, but it does not translate to changing yourself for the benefit of the beholder rather than yourself.
Be you. Be the person you want to be. Try not to run behind perfection and external satisfaction. Be happy and keep your mind and soul internally satisfied.
All that you are and will be, is your decision. So don’t fake it, but take it in stride.
