Other Environmental Issues

27 May

if we really stop and think, we are all pretty well educated on the need to alter our practices in order to save the planet. The majority of us will recycle, shut off energy when not in use and other means of preserving the natural environment. With this being so, I don’t understand why the message does not translate as well about changing our practices to preserve our relationships between fellow citizens of this earth. When we look at the events of the last few weeks on the streets, it is so sad.it makes me question what lesson has fallen by the way side that has led to people not being able to talk and instead doing these awful things. Emotional intelligence is so important for any society.

So the next question must be, when is the best time to start this education, you know, to make the most impact? Ideally, it would be from birth. As parents, we would like to think that we educate our children to listen, ask questions and act in a kind, humane way. This makes such a difference and you can see this in many people. Lets say for argument sake though, that the lessons don’t hit home at the first attempt. Surely then the best times for these lessons are everyday of our lives.

A kind word, a loving thought, a smile even. All of these things can only be returned positively. They can change a whole day. The truth is everyone has things happening in their life that no-one knows about, and life can seem a lonely place. You know I learned that from experience. As I said last week, there were times when I felt like there was no way forwards. Thankfully, I was caught early by Miss Elaine Carabin, I was 14 and worked since then on looking in front of me and living for now. In many ways, my future as an educationalist started with Miss Carabin. Not everyone is as lucky though. They do not have someone to really help them to sort out their feelings, their passions, their fears. Sometimes what is needed is a way of channeling feelings until a positive response is reached.

I have dedicated my business to teaching students of all ages to get to this. A point where they can recognise opportunities, have confidence, recognise that everyone contributes in this world and whilst sometimes its hard to understand, a positive response with love stirred in will always be most effective. The message is clearer.

The level of hatred displayed in our world everyday says clearly that there is another environmental issue that needs work. Let this week be one in which we start to recycle those bad feelings and start to love again. Let this be the week that if someone, no matter how old or young needs to talk, we try to listen and hear. Lets work towards having not just a clean sustainable earth but great love in the hearts of its inhabitants. In reality we need both. My heart is with all of those affected by the Woolwich Tragedy and indeed around the world.

I will be smiling and saying good morning as I go about my days this week as always. If you don’t, just try it, the day feels that much better for it. Have a good week. 😀
