Size can be a signal that things have changed.
Have you seen bananas lately?
Or chickens compared to 20 years ago?
The height of buildings?
Density of cities?
I was visiting one of our suppliers a couple of weeks ago and noticed the size of abalone shells in their bin. They were maybe 5 inches. Teeny.
When I got home, I measured the one I collected about 15 years ago and it was almost a foot long.
That scares me. It makes my heart worry.
Abalone is regulated, and so is window-pane oyster (the kind used for windchimes). But the harvesting and dredging methods for most shells are wide open and horribly damaging. The regulations also change to suit business, not always environment. (Depending on the country of export).
To make a long story short… we don’t carry shell anymore.
No coral, abalone, jewelry, clothing accents, buttons, smudge shells. Nada.
Whew! My heart feels waaaaay better!
How about you?
Today – choose something that worries your heart and deal with it in a single decision.
It could be that you want to start a new habit or stop an old one and you’ve been procrastinating. Make today the day.
Maybe staying in touch with family has been niggling at your heart strings. Schedule it in.
Maybe all the cute little pig videos on Face Book are worrying your heart. Decide not to eat pig anymore.
Maybe you keep thinking you should start or add to your savings account. Make today the day.
Let me know how it goes!
Live in joy,
