Hey you there,
The one with the books in your hand with a thousand fresh ideas, wondering how you’re going to help change the world.
You’re somebody who wants to constantly learn and grow yourself and the people around you. You have heart and care about the world in a peculiar way.
We could do more if we had people like you everywhere.
Let’s face it. We need people to solve people problems. And if you care, that gives you a huge advantage.
It’s a big place, but there’s lots more people out there willing to join and help.
Will you start something today?
It begins when we change what we think, but things truly start when we act on the things that we think. Here comes the age-old saying, our actions speak louder than words.
Intentions matter for only so long. When we intend to create better transportation infrastructure for a city, to make traffic more efficient, safer, and on time, delays and cancellations communicate that we never intended to do any of it in the first place.
That’s why when Magali Lafleur from Find Your Alternative and I wanted to make an environmental difference in Toronto, we’re going hands-in-dirt into cleaning up our city’s parks with our community.
Two everyday citizens wanting better, where we can make an immediate difference.
If you want to join us, the event is today. We’re meeting up at 6:30 by Trinity Bellwoods Park by Queen St. and Strachan Ave. We’ll see you there!
Everything counts (who’s counting?)
The details matter (says who?)
We can do it if we try (do you really think so?)
The fact of the matter is, nothing counts only if you think it doesn’t; the details are worthless if you think the attention should be focused on elsewhere; and if you won’t be someone who tries, who will?
What we think should match up to what we say, and what we say should reflect what we do.
Trying your best to go zero waste but forgot your reusable bags at home when you took a trip to the supermarket?
Did the barista at your local cafe stick a plastic straw into your drink even though you brought your reusable cup?
It’s okay, we’ve all been there. Making these mistakes every once in a while is forgivable. If you believe it’s worth it, keep trying.
