OK here is my first true crack at it! Ha –
First let me give you the definitions of the words separately that I believe sum up my reason for blogging on this oh-so-important topic:
Micro: very small in comparison with others of its kind
Conservation: prevention of excessive or wasteful use of a resource
Second let me tell you why I want to talk about it! Honestly, having lived my whole life in conservation mode of “the rainforest is being depleted every minute!”, “our ozone layer has a hole in it from CFC’s!”, “our oceans have floating garbage patches!” I have felt COMPLETELY overwhelmed. I really care about these things and conservation is not just important, it is an essential duty we were given when we were created – see Genesis 1, God created the world and it was GOOD! Truly let’s first agree that we have a stewardship towards the earth that we should take seriously.
My delusions of grandeur growing up included thinking that I might be smart enough to fix one of these very large and complex issues! Yea right! Now that life has toppled into place, I find that while I can’t fix the big things, I can work on the small things. You other mom and dads, husbands and wives, probably have this figured out already but just in case you are like me and still finding your way — I hope to help guide you!
My blog series will include primarily the micro-conservation of:
- Life Hacks (Grab Bag)
There, done. That wasn’t so bad really. Oh, my analysis says 300 words is a good length and without this sentence I was 293. 🙂 See? Even you can blog better than me!
I truly hope I have piqued enough interest for you to join me on this journey of incorporating micro-conservation into our daily lives with my first post about food coming up next!
