Lead By Example. Celebrate and Appreciate.

Updated: Dec 4, 2020

Our world is at a tipping point.  It is said that we have a 10-year window to save our world as we know it.   We, the human race, are fully aware that big changes need to be made, and that they need to be made now. 

Lead by example. Celebrate and appreciate any small change. Remember to not be hard on yourself and on others for not being “perfect” on their journey to change. Instead, let’s be thankful to ourselves and to others for any small change.

Be proud of any and all small changes that you make.

One person cannot fix all the worlds issues.  Each one of us are on our own individual journey.  We each have something we are passionate about.  A change we so desperately want to see happen.  Each journey matters.  Each change matters.

Maybe you stopped using plastic straws, or you stopped using single use coffee cups. Celebrate that. And if one day you slip-up and use a plastic straw, don’t shame yourself… instead encourage yourself by saying “I’ll do better next time!”

Let’s educate, encourage and inspire others to do their part.

When a friend goes to the gas stop with a reusable coffee cup, celebrate them, make a big deal about how great it is that they have one and are making the effort to use it. Positive feedback is encouraging.

The saying of “Treat others the way you want to be treated” is true for all of us. Be the change, lead by example. Celebrate the small efforts and changes. It’s important to appreciate and thank others for doing their part to save our home, our planet. We are all on different points on our journey. That’s ok. As long as we are all doing our part. That is what truly matters. Baby steps are to be celebrated and encouraged.

Yours in health, happiness and success,

Nancy Shimmy
