Our world is full of life, but it is in trouble due to the destruction we are largely creating. Do you believe climate change is real? I certainly do, simply from witnessing opposing seasons interlocking at some point with each other and on the other side of the world, glaciers are melting in temperatures way below zero.

Earth Day is on April 22 and is the world’s largest environmental movement. Since the first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, more than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, with a focus on education, public policy, and consumer campaigns.

This year’s campaign is “Environmental & Climate Literacy.” Learn more about how you can get involved and take action to eliminate pollution, planting trees and tending gardens, curbing greenhouse emissions or to help power the movement. Visit the Earth Day Network.

World Water Day, Water, Water Crisis, International World Water Day, United NationsToday is World Water Day, which is celebrated annually on March 22.

In 1993, the United Nations General Assembly officially designated March 22 as World Water Day. World Water Day is coordinated by UN-Water in collaboration with governments and partners.

As we continue to ensure that every person around the world has access to clean drinking water, let’s also be mindful of our carelessness when it comes to illegally dumping pollutants contaminating our waterways and oceans. While there is still a lot of work yet to be done, there is so much that we can do individually to make this effort possible. Check out the reputable clean water organizations who are making strides to help millions of people around the world have access to clean water.

Spring, Seasons, Warm Weather

Throughout our sporadic winter weather, we have been waiting for spring to get here and booyah…it has arrived. Although allergy season is in progress, I don’t think we can complain about that inconvenience and are truly grateful to welcome the warmth of the change of seasons this day brings.

Helloooooooo Spring!

Women's History Month, Celebrating Women Image Credit: DiversityStore.Com

Contrary to what some may think, the power of a woman is fierce, strong, heroic and mind-boggling. Although progress has been made throughout history, women have faced and continue to face inequality in various industries such as the workforce, arts, literature, politics, religion and film. I love this quote by William Golding (1911-1993), “I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men…they are far superior and always have been.”

Throughout the month of March, we are celebrating National Women’s History Month. Women have been the glue to hold families, businesses, and organizations together, with or without recognition. Yet, those days of ignoring the important role women play in our everyday lives are a thing of the past. Women are resilient and demand to be seen and heard. No longer are voices stifled and visions hidden. Women are and always have been the pioneers of innovation…

Are You Ready for a Bigger Pot?

flower pots, growth, spiritual maturity

Several years ago, I purchased some plants and flowers that I haphazardly left in their original containers for a few months. One day I noticed the roots found their way through the holes of those plastic containers and the plants began to look a bit haggard. Throughout my years of many failures and successes when growing plants and flowers, I realize the process for growth and multiplication is not the same application for all of my garden friends. Some plants grow slow, while others take off like a lightening rod!

While fertilization, watering and getting sufficient sunlight was essential, my problem was leaving these plants and flowers in pots they outgrew. After buying some bigger containers to replant my foliage in, I was amazed at how fast those plants and flowers flourished.

How do you know when you’re ready to move into a bigger pot? I’m not referring to a…
