Here is the thing about me, call it a personality flaw or whatever you like, but at times I can be easily overwhelmed. I want to do so much, and sometimes there are just not enough hours in the day. Blahblahblah, I know you have heard it all before, and guess what so have I, since I am usually the one saying it. But when I stop whining, I can create a moment of clarity and realize I am not supposed to do it all, but I DO have to do something.
So the "something" I did the other day was a beach clean up. I was naive enough to think that this would be easy, since it was a nice beach in a nice area. Hot damn was I wrong, people can be slobs apparently no matter where you go.
But I will not bore you with how disgusting people can be (sure you know that already), or what I picked up, or the amount of trash we found. But what I will share is my point, which I am sure you already know by now, but I will say it again to drive it home. I was doing something, I was not whining about how I should be doing something (which I am quite good at it). And you know what it, that is all it takes some times to feel less overwhelmed and more motivated to go out and do more. I am just saying, it is worth a try at the very least. Don't get me wrong, I know I can always do more, I am not preaching trust me, this really is a small act. But we all have start somewhere and do something!
