What Can You do to Depict Your Purpose in This World
Many of us wonder about our purpose here on earth and we believe that we are living because we need to fulfill the mission of our existence. Every day we hear, watch and read scary news, making us think that the world is indeed scarier and more unsafe. 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. 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 start the change in our homes, with our family because if we are able to do it, then we are confident that we can also extend and do it with our neighbors and the larger society, making our world happier, safer and a better place to live in. 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. 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. You can help the environment by using natural, eco-friendly and organic materials such as Il Gufo Clothing for children which are very comfortable, stylish and are made of natural materials instead of synthetic fabrics. Take part and do your bit for a better world by volunteering yourself in a charity event, a health mission or a disaster relief, and you will realize how it feels good to be of help to others. Volunteering comes in different forms and sizes and you don’t have to spend too much time especially if you’re busy, just find time and make the most out of it.
Without flying or driving a lot, there are other means of still enjoying your time with your family in order to offset or reduce your carbon emissions. You can calculate your carbon emissions by visiting websites such as cotap.org or carbonfootprint.com. These websites are good sources of some ways you can do to offset your carbon emissions such as tree planting or giving your contribution towards sustainability projects. One of the most rewarding methods to give back to your community and to the world is by donating your blood. 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.
