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. We read, watch and hear bad news every day and we feel that the world is more unsafe and scarier. Crime, religious war, pessimism, unemployment, and poverty are increasing in all parts of the world, and all of these things threaten our existence and the future of our children. It is easy to underestimate ourselves, thinking that we cannot do anything and we just accept the reality that these are all part of the world we live in. 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. In reality, it is hard to change our shopping habits but we can make this world better by patronizing our own local products and only shopping from ethical and reputable companies. You are helping your local community by purchasing your goods from local suppliers 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, going through multiple transport channels. Use eco-friendly products or those using natural materials such as Il Gufo Clothing, a great option for children’s clothing. Do your bit for a better world by becoming a volunteer of a charity event, a health mission or a disaster relief. You don’t have to spend too much time especially if you’re busy, just find time and make the most out of it.
In order to offset or reduce your carbon emissions, there are other means of still enjoying your time with your family without flying or driving a lot. You can calculate your carbon emissions by visiting websites such as cotap.org or carbonfootprint.com. These websites are helpful in providing sound pieces of advice about offsetting your carbon emissions like tree planting or giving your contribution towards sustainability projects. Blood donation is one of the most rewarding experience as a way of giving back to the community and the world. You are able to directly help and extend the life of other people who are injured, who will be undergoing surgery and those requiring blood transfusion because of a chronic disease.
