I don't want to get into predictions at this time. They are actually too easy.
Instead I will make a list of changes I would like to see take place in 2016
All equally important - Make an earnest contribution and it'll be added to the list
1 - More people talking to one another- FACE to FACE- Not through anti social media
Talk about important issues loudly so others can 'eavesdrop'
2 - Less gadget uses- Dump the smart/pain/spy phones They are destroying the art of conversation as they suck your souls And enough of the narcissistic 'selfies', please!
3 - Plant a frikkin' vegetable garden people! Even if it's just a few pots full of some fresh herbs. Do something to feed yourself some good quality, organic food- Save your seeds- As man has always done- That's the real/true sustainable method of food production
4 -Learn a new skill- gardening, painting, sewing, laying floors, whatever- do something yourself. The loss of skills in just a few generations is shocking to think about
5 - Get back to nature- for real
6 - Be kind, not cruel. Thanks to Gwen for expanding on the kindness factor:
"LOOK for ways to be useful or kind. Some examples are: if you're at a
store and you see some item that's fallen off the shelf, pick it up and
put it back, even if you have to detour a little to do so.. Are you behind the elderly person who is moving too slowly for you?
Slow down, take a quiet breath and be patient then look to see if that
person needs help in some way - is he/she looking for something? Does
he/she need help reaching something? Nothing like that? Then make a
point to smile and say "hi!"
7- Stop looking for a hero- cause you're already here. And you are all that is needed to save yourself
8 - Don't be so quick to take a pill. It often is not the easiest or most effective method of treatment
9 - Stay away from the Tell-a-vison- Intelligent people think for themselves.
10- Value yourself, your family, your neighbours and your community
11 - Support your local farmer and your local business- they spend their money locally more so then the multinationals
12 - Take good care of your pets, if you have them.
13- Always learn something new- Every single day.
