Thoughts on change. We live in a world that is getting smaller by the second. Thanks to technology, things that were once swept under the rug are now being live streamed to the public. Movements like Black Lives Matter, Me Too, Body Positive, LGBTQ rights are finally getting some traction, though much more is needed. Privilege is finally being checked. Big corporations are even getting in on the game – like Unilever threatening to pull ads from Facebook and Google if they don’t step up in terms of banning hate speech, fake news, and other things that could be harmful to children. The world might actually become a better place to live in for our children. Despite all the noise, you can’t deny this is really an exciting time to be alive. Progress is sometimes painstakingly slow, but if you aren’t working towards it, you are holding everyone back. No matter how insignificant you think you may be. You can start right now if you want – ready, set, go!
In my own lifetime I’ve witnessed a society that once rolled their eyes at the idea of recycling, or even eating organic foods, joked about the impossibility of having a black President, and more recently, scoffed at the impossibility of having a Trump as President. If all of that change doesn’t make one hopeful that ANYTHING is possible, I don’t know what else will!
This jacket by Veda x Reformation is a beautiful reminder that we can all do better to love our mother Earth. I’m a mother lover, are you??
P.S. Can you spot the photo bomber? 🙂
