I had a mindful and reflective day today.
I spent the morning meditating, and it felt very gratifying.
I took an interesting tour of a local creamery and learned of their practices as well as where they source their ingredients (local farmers!).
I made a delicious vegan meal from some of the items I bought from the farmers market yesterday and I ate it consciously. It was quite enjoyable to take my time, savour each bite, and consider the flavors and textures in my mouth.
I have been thinking about the Earth – what I already do to help and protect it, and what things I can add and improve upon.
I am excited to plant my container garden this year and have been thinking about it for much of the day.
I feel grateful today that Earth Day is an official holiday that we have been celebrating for 42 years.
I give thanks to the Earth for all it has given me and I hope, through my continuous research and education, that my footprint will become smaller and smaller.
I wish you a Happy Earth Day.
