A year or so ago, I wrote an article about living a life according to 'Re'. A self-designed philosophy from which, I believe each and everyone of us, can benefit. If you are not sure, whether or not you read this article, I'll place the link below.
In life, we all have choices. The choice to use or not to use a product; the choice to throw away packaging in the right or wrong place; the choice to find a way to bring it to life again; the choice to give it to someone else to enjoy; the choice to re-purpose the old and make it new; or the choice to just re-use it - over and over again because we don't want to waste money or pollute the planet. At the end of the day, how we use or abuse life, the planet, people is an active decision on our behalf that we all have control over - that we can tweak, to make our world a better place.
The idea of 'Re' is just that - to place 're' before just about any verb so that you have a way of re-purposing things, thoughts and actions. Be doing this, we make renewed, conscious decisions to make the world a better place, just because we can and because if it doesn't start with us and the generation that lives now, then who and what generation will act for the benefit of all?
No matter how small or minuscule we think our actions might be, they truly add up to something that will change the world forever - one drop in the bucket now, will give a full lifetime of sustenance for another being.
So below, I have added to the list of 'Re's to re-jog your memory of just how simple the process can be on a daily basis.

The World According to 'Re'
We are all part of the one, continuous chain - life; one species no less important or more important than the next.
We all share the air we breathe, the water we drink and Mother Earth who shares her sustenance with us. Our lives are all finite, some more quickly than others, our time is equally as precious as the lives we choose to create.
Each species is bound by a unique language, culture, belief system that bonds a community whether you understand it or not - whether you speak it or not - whether it is human, animal, plant or not.
Yet, there is something ‘we’ all have in common and that is the circle of life; destroy that precious chain and we all suffer.
Find time for a species other than your own, learn its needs - there are no wants, no desires. It does not come calling to kill, destroy or possess you; it gives you love, pleasure or assists you through your life hood journey.
Repaying that kindness with equal reciprocity, helping out that species when the sea of life becomes turbulent is the least we can do.
What is perfect? There is a time in one’s life that appears too good to be true, maybe that is perfect and maybe - life is perfectly, imperfect - for that is all we need to aspire.

A difference is not just creating some massive change in another’s life, even the smallest act of kindness everyday, can make a difference. Kindness shared creates an abundance of inspiring possibilities - can spark new ways of doing things - can resolve underlying problems, left unresolved because they’re too hard - give confidence and inspiration that might not seem like much at the time, but are a mountain of help for that person over their lifetime.
It is so easy to carry on with our lives, in such a busy way - we don’t think twice about the way we ask people to carry out daily tasks if we are management, when in conversation with others, when we speak to kids or adults who are still young at heart. We get blindsided by business, by society’s expectations that we take on board as needing to be more efficient, so we can get ahead in life. We forget how we might have arrived in the world, who gave us that first break, who took time out to teach us right from wrong - the abc’s - who helped us when we were down.
Caring is sharing the burdens of life. Sharing is caring about those burdens, so the pain is less on everyone.
We are all interconnected and what affects you - affects others. Share the love of positivity and inspiring assistance to others - you may need it yourself one day.
