My boyfriend is almost ten years younger than me ;)
Be gentle with yourself. Be kind to yourself. You may not be perfect, but you are all youve got to work with. The process of becoming who you will be begins first with the total acceptance of who you are.
What Gives Me Hope
Children who try to make a difference. My son raised over a thousand dollars for the American Heart Association and refused the prizes, so that they could be given to a sick child. Whenever I feel hopeless, that gives me inspiration.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
I'd force power plants to depend more on solar energy and less on nuclear, until we were completely free of that dangerous radioactive nuclear power.
What/who changed my life and why
Jesus, because he saved me from certain eternal damnation. If you mean a living person? That would be my boyfriend, Jay Yeasmin, who taught me the value of patience in an unjust world.
I've decided to commit to offsetting at least one pound of carbon, as well as give one day of safe drinking water per day. The rest of my credits will go towards donating seed packets - for both food and medical purposes. Maybe once a week I will either give a box of soap or rehydrating salts. It is hard to bypass things like a school lunch for a day, but I have to believe that helping people help themselves (through seed packet donations) will keep them fed and medicated far more than one meal ever can. I am also always tempted to help the animals with a treat or a meal, but I feel that our children have to come first. They are our future and no child should ever go hungry.
