📚 Why don’t we make our lives collectively simpler?
a-The correct employment of the term “Platonic relationship” refers to a level of friendship that has developed to maturity in trust and respect.
b-This is the only context in which a state of equanimity can be achieved between two human beings. Anything else is just a struggle for power and control.
c-Unbalanced relationships are an example of one parties’ attempt to be in control. Manipulating natural circumstances to have their way.
d-Manipulation can occur in many forms: Intimidation, verbal or physical abuse, sexuality...
e- ALL forms of manipulation in the long term are a TERRIBLE IDEA.
What a day! 🌎💉
Today I was part of the Seattle Climate Strike, and it was empowering seeing kids to elderly band together in educating, raising awareness, and speaking up for our planet.
Since becoming a travel nurse, I have been so blessed to experience some of the most beautiful places in this country. And as a result, I've become increasingly passionate about preserving and protecting our planet through sustainability, intentional consumption, and eco-friendly and concious practices in my day to day life.
This is all still relatively new territory to me, but the key is awareness and intent. As I'm self-educating on the causes and impacts of climate change, I'm going to share those nuggets with you. And I'd love for you to also educate me on what you learn too! The more knowledge we have, the more empowered we can be in making better intentions and choices in our lives.
As a healthcare professional who has worked in 5 different facilities around the country, I see first hand the direct effects of our patients' health being affected by environmental factors related to climate change. We're seeing rises in conditions such as asthma that are directly related to climate change due to extreme heat and air pollution, just to name a few.
Truth be told, it can be confusing, overwhelming, and even paralyzing with all the statistics and facts out there, but the more awareness we have and changes we make, even the smallest ones, will lead to the biggest differences, especially if we all collectively make an effort.
I'm hopeful that the generations that come after me will be fortunate enough to experience, play, and enjoy the beauty of our planet.
What sustainable or eco-concious practices have you implemented in your life? 🌿 I'll be sharing my efforts on a video soon! 💞
