I Believe

February 8th, 2009

For this month’s Green Moms Carnival, Jennifer Taggert of The Smart Mama asked us to blog on the topic: “I Believe.”

I believe that small steps make a difference.

I believe in God, and I believe that God wants us to take care of the Earth.

I believe in the power of the Green Moms Carnival. I believe that raising our voices together makes a difference, whether we are blogging about global warming, or urging the Obama Administration to adopt a prevention agenda, or any of the other upcoming topics, like plastics.

I believe that sometimes you need to step away from the blogging and writing and spend more time just being and doing. That’s one reason I’m not quite as active in the blogosphere as I was this time last year. I’m spending more time building my client base of green and wanna-be-more green companies, helping them to take small steps that cumulatively will make a big difference to us and our children. As business has taken off (good!), my time for blogging and visiting my favorite blogs has decreased (bad!)

I believe that it’s never too late to make a difference.

And I believe that for some reason, this was one of the hardest Carnival topics to tackle! What do you think?

Be sure to check out Jennifer’s site on Monday to see the other Green Moms Carnival posts!

    I agree with you, Lynn about stepping back. I have been trying to do that but I find I am drawn to all the green news around us. After being at the international builder show, I have a new mound of material..sign..

    It’s about keeping fresh and staying inspired. Thanks for inspiring me tonight.

    Absolutely! I am just letting the emails pile up in my inbox because there is just so much “real life” to be lived. But when I read posts like these in the carnival, I remember that our blogging life IS part of the real world, and we are all real women. Thanks for creating this awesome forum, Lynn!

    It is a balance, isn’t it, between blogging and “real life”. I believe that it is important to raise our voices in both spheres – just as you have done.

    I think that this topic and the timing of it …was much needed! Always a good thing to evaluate one’s belief.

    Let’s never lose track of that core belief that we can make a difference! It makes living worthwhile.

    I’m right there with you (in stepping away from the blogging *and* in believing in the power of the blogging green moms!). Hope all’s well!

    I struggled with this one, big time. Congrats on the business. And I too am thinking maybe I have been too focused on my computer. Taking a break is good.
