Good News! You can celebrate Earth Day 2023 every day.

Here’s how:

🌻 Be Grateful

The air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat — all of these sustain us.

And all of these come from nature.

So when we celebrate the gift of life, we celebrate the gift of nature.


🌻 Be Mindful

Notice the life that surrounds you.

Pause to study its colors, complexities, and contours.

On a large scale, notice the shapes of animals, birds, and trees.

Then on a small scale, notice the details in twigs, leaves, and flowers.

🌻 Be Helpful

We help our friends.

Often we help them improve. Or we help them resolve challenges.

We do this because their success becomes our success.


🌻 Be Careful

People have the gift of being able to make conscious choices. With this comes the responsibility of making positive choices.

Positive choices are based on compassion.

So we need to care for nature the way we would care for our best friends. Or the way we would care for ourselves.

🌻 Be Hopeful

All life carries instinctive optimism.

And thus, life always moves forward, toward health.

Each species knows it will thrive when it fulfills its role in nature.

And so we can create hope when we form a positive partnership with nature.

Then we’ll leave a legacy we admire.

Much success,
