Stop. There are approximately 46,000-1,000,000 plastic fragments floating within every square mile of Earth’s oceans. If you are aware, about climate change, about global warming, then as you use plastic bags, you are contributing to this phenomenon, stop. Every single plastic bag you have seen, is still lying around on this planet you call home, stop using them. You think these bags lying around in the oceans, on roadsides, aren’t harming you, but they are. Plastic bags threaten wildlife and marine life as animals may mistake them for food and consume them. Most plastic bags have some pollutants such as PCBs (poly-chlorinated biphenyls) together with PAHs (Poly-cyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) which are hormone disrupting. Once the marine animals consume these chemicals, they move through the food chains, and into humans. These chemicals are mostly insoluble in water, meaning they can accumulate in our bodies over the years, and may be passed on from a woman to her child. These chemicals may lead to cancer and/or other serious medical conditions. Recycling plastic bags does not change the fact that they will eventually land up in landfills and oceans. The production, sale and usage of plastic bags should be banned, if it isn’t banned where you stay, at least stop using them. Use reusable eco-friendly bags instead. Save lives, save your planet, STOP using plastic bags.
What new is to come in a day’s change,
The sun still rises behind the snowy mountain range.
Birds chirp melodies of stories untold,
Yet they still contemporarily, sing echos of repitition.
Sedentary stones decide to move,
The dropout decides to prove,
Change was from within they say,
Not from a new day, not from a new year.
Fear was of change, but desire for growth.
Never ready, they take an oath.
For why should one keep waiting for a new beginning,
Why should one wait to start their journey of living.
The stars in favour,
Darkness caused terror.
Fear and desire,
To be afraid or to admire?
Stuck between dimensions,
Surrounded by all the tension.
Avoiding but craving,
Reached out but holding back,
All the fear, you were bound to crack.
Simple yet complex,
Head spinning with wreck.
FLIP THE SWITCH, FROM COMFORT TO SUCCESS
Lazing around on your bed all day? Or doing the same old 9 to 5 job for months or even years? If yes, then let me tell you this. You have entered and made yourself at home in your comfort zone. It’s time to flip the switch. It’s time to get up, get out of your house and do something different. I’m pretty sure that at one point of your life, you imagined yourself walking down the red carpet, being super famous and successful. Is that, still a dream of yours? Or have you managed to turn your dreams into a reality? I’m not going to lie, it will take hard work, it will take perseverance, it will take time, but in the end, its all worth it. Your very first step is rather easy, trying out new things. Such as, painting, growing a plant, dancing or anything that interests you. Try it out for a couple days, don’t like it? Then try something new. Keep doing this until you find the one thing you are passionate about or the one thing you see yourself doing in the future. Remember, patience is key. Work more towards it and see how you can improve in your hobby. At first, there will be a boost of motivation inside you, and as time passes by, it may start fading away. You may feel like giving up, everyone does at some point. Just don’t lose hope and keep going. Now, what you need to do is figure out a way to transform your passion into your job. You need to think; how can you make the world a better place with your hobby? Maybe your interest is gardening. You can most certainly make your environment better by planting. Maybe you want to be a poet. You can share the gift of your creativity, you can express yourself in words that leave the rest in awe. I know that this is a tough and time-consuming step but you can do it. It takes effort and time but you will not regret it because once you turn your passion into your job, nothing can come in your way of being successful. During this entire process, you have to keep certain things in mind. This process will not happen overnight, it takes time. Don’t give up even if others let you down. You don’t need to be like your family or your friends. You can freely be yourself. Don’t care about the people who judge you for what your passion is. Be bold and have confidence in yourself. Its time to be different. Its time to step out of your comfort zone and enter the zone of success. Its time to turn your dreams into reality.
