What Can You do to Depict Your Purpose in This World
At some point in our lives, we think of the purpose of our existence and most people believe that we live because we need to fulfill our mission here on earth. Every day we hear, watch and read scary news, making us think that the world is indeed scarier and more unsafe. Poverty, crime, religious war, unemployment, domestic violence, and pessimism are increasing in different parts of the world, and these things threaten our existence, our future, and our children’s future. Because of all the negative things going on around, we feel like we can’t do anything to change the reality. As parents of the next generation, it is our responsibility to act as early as now and do the right thing, being a good role model to others and teaching our children to be good citizens.
Let us begin the change in our homes before we reach outside and influence others to make this world a better place to live in, happy and safe. It is not always easy to change our shopping habits but we can help the world by patronizing our local products and purchasing items from ethical companies. By buying goods from local suppliers, you are already helping your local community instead of big businesses and you are also reducing your carbon footprint because they don’t undergo the process of being shipped around the world. Use eco-friendly products or those using natural materials such as Il Gufo Clothing, a great option for children’s clothing. It feels good to give back to the community by being a volunteer of a charity event, a health mission or a disaster relief and do your bit for a better world. You don’t have to spend too much time especially if you’re busy, just find time and make the most out of it.
You can offset or reduce your carbon emissions by finding other means to enjoy spending your time with your family. Individuals and all types and sizes of businesses can calculate their carbon dioxide emissions by visiting websites such as cotap.org or carbonfootprint.com. These websites will also give you some suggestions on how you can offset your carbon emissions by tree planting or giving your contribution towards sustainability projects. Donating your blood is really a rewarding experience of giving back to the community and the world. It is a direct means to help extend the life of another person who has been injured in an accident or who is needing surgery.
