Invest in people, not mega corporations. I am dedicated to trash removal, invasive species removals, coastal restorations, and protecting our native wildlife. Today we were out collecting trash, as well as removing one of the most invasive species in the world... the apple snail. These snails came from the Amazon and were brought in for the aquarium trade. Unfortunately these snails can lay over a thousand eggs every week, and the success rate is very high. Their bright pink eggs contain a neurotoxin in them that is very dangerous to humans. The snails also feed consistently on native plants causing major erosion.

Black smoke billows from smokestacks towering above the village. The smell of burning plastic fills the air. Patches of black ash cover the ground. It’s another day of making tofu.

Isn’t it strange that love has a way of keeping us tied to people who wound us?
Maybe it sometimes has to do with loyalty. But as soon as loyalty comes with a diminishing of the self it’s not love.
We think that if we only do less or do more, hold on or put in more work into it, everything will be okay.
...Truth is that if anything was going to be different it would have happened by now?
It’s just that love should never hold you back from growth. Love doesn’t diminish or contaminate. Love...shouldn’t be confusing or make you feel small. If someone truly loves you...it should feel like love, and sometimes choosing wholeness means stepping away from that someone who keeps your spirit broken and malnourished.
It can be a partner, a friend, your dad, mom, sister or brother. Maybe there was a time that you were dependent on this person, that you had no say in the conditions on which you let him or her come close to you.
But that doesn’t have to last forever. There is absolutely no obligation to stay in touch with people who are toxic just because they are considered as “family”. If they can’t love you, they have not chosen you. You can’t avoid the “elephant in the room” by bending or flexing around it.
But you can always
...always choose to walk away from it.
“No more I love you's
The language is leaving me
No more I love you's
The language is leaving me in silence
No more I love you's
Changes are shifting outside the words”
~ Annie Lennox
Unhealed parts of ourselves sometimes will come back to haunt us. Unconsciously we may choose people who bring up similar childhood emotions in order to heal them. If you heal those parts of yourself, you may be less likely to continue to choose those same type of people over again. God bless❤️❤️❤️
