Happy Monday + Something to think about

*Yes I’m aware, today isn’t Monday :) even so I love this quote so much that I wanted to share it again so, today I’m linking up with The Conscious Perspective for “Wisdom Wednesday“. Hope you’ll join us and link up too!

Below is a photo taken during our trip to the San Diego Zoo this past August.

“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors we borrow it from our children.”

~ American Indian Proverb

This was my first time reading this quote (proverb) and I found it to be so profound it was worthy of a picture. Whenever you borrow something from someone you tend to make every effort to take care of it so that when you are done, you can return it to the person {you borrowed it from} in its original state ( I realize this is not the case for everyone – but for many of us)…We do this with clothing, movies, and various material objects which are all often replaceable unlike our precious earth. For me this was a reminder to take even more care in how I inhabit this amazing place in which we live because whatever we leave behind our children will be left to enjoy or to endure or perhaps both. Just something to think about…
