Sometimes it's really hard trying to make a difference in the world. Sometimes I wonder why I try so hard. Sometimes it's frustrating when you can see the problem, you can see the solution, you have the tools, resources and humans to help fix it but those who you want to assist don't want to be assisted. Sometimes I feel like giving up. I am not a paid staff at any non profit. Never have been. Everything I do, comes from the heart and most of the time COSTS ME . I don't pay myself a salary either when it comes to the sustainability/conservation advocacy I do. The first time I spoke at a conservation forum was in 1996 and I have videos of me speaking about the planet way back in 1995 on MTV. It's been a long long road and this year from about March after launching the Global Environment Outlook at the United Nations Environment Assembly, then reading The Uninhabitable Earth by David Wallis Wells I have been questioning. Have I made a difference? Am I wasting my time? How do I measure my value? I give talks around the world, get off stage and go home.. there is no feedback or metrics for that kind of thing and in all honesty, the planet has not gotten any better, is only gotten much worse. I have always been an optimist, which is why I have been at this for so long.. I know I won't give up but, I just needed to share that sometimes it's a frustrating path to walk. #truth #sustainability #conservation #onehumanity #oneplanet
