It’s Earth Day so it is time to say a big thank you to our planet and show it a little love!
Earth Day is one of my favorite (wildly underappreciated) holidays of the year! Nature and Earth are very near and dear to my heart and I love taking the day to celebrate the things I love most about the planet we call home. Seeing that my name is JessofEarth, it seems only fitting that I write this little thank you post because not only has the Earth given me a place to call home, but it has also given me my branding (haha, just kidding).
So, thank you, Earth. Thank you for giving me new places to explore with friends. For fun hikes and trips outside and apple picking in the fall.
Thank you for fields of flowers and green houses filled with life and for lakes and water falls and beautiful gardens. And thank you to beautiful people who enable the Earth to flourish. I hope that my kids and grandkids and their grandkids can enjoy the same beautiful sights that I have been enjoying my whole life. And thank you to the bees for keeping the flowers blooming year after year.
And thank you for beaches. Because beaches are my favorite place to go when I am sad because seeing the ocean, so massive, right in front of me reminds me how small I am. And sometimes, remembering how small you are can be really humbling and also a good reminder of how small problems actually are. But it also reminds me that I am mighty because I have the power to protect this beautiful ocean and the world around me with my own actions.
Thank you, Earth…because without you, there wouldn’t be me or anyone else for that matter. Thank you for the memories…for all the times I have laughed and cried and run across the sand screaming about things have made my heart sing or break or shine. Thank you for being a place to go, a place to be, and a place to admire.
Please treat the Earth with kindness this Earth Day and everyday…because there is no Planet B.
Happy Earth Day~
