#dailydoseofcalm : I often think about the character May form The Secret Life of Bees. She feels too much, like the earth’s problems are on her shoulders and she can’t separate her own pain from that of people she’s never met. Those around her try to hide newspaper articles from her so that she cannot see the negativity flooding the world. She says once in the story, “a worker bee weighs less than a flower petal, but she can fly with a load heavier than her. But she only lives for a few weeks. Sometimes not feeling is the only way you can survive.” I often think about May and this quote and have come to the conclusion that I truly understand her and what she is saying. Many times, I have felt the weight of the world’s sadness and it’s affected me greatly. Sometimes the only way to survive and move on is distraction and I am learning that it is okay to remove yourself from certain situations or hide certain influences because they do not cater to adding more light your my life.
QOTD: What brings light into your life?

“I recently trekked up to a little cabin in the mountains to enjoy a couple days of backcountry splitboarding and take some photos. I knew the snow would be good (it was) but conditions for photography were literally up in the air. There was a chance of a "mild" inversion and I wistfully dreamed of a mountain-top sunrise above a sea of clouds... instead the inversion came and went like a stranger in the night, and I was damn lucky to have stepped out of the cabin when I did to witness it.
Of course I forgot my tripod in the car while scrambling to pack my gear. I quickly eyed the cabin for something juuust right to set my camera on... which ended up being a plastic measuring cup propped on a ski glove, 🤷 and had barely enough time to get a few exposures of this view before the inversion broke and I was in the clouds instead of above them.
Oh... that funky green glow on the horizon? Yeah. That's the Northern Lights!! I thought it looked oddly green for city lights, but didn't think much of it until I got home. I had the random idea to check the aurora forecast history... and sure enough, the aurora was active that night and visible where I was!”
Still have a few of my moon phases flash cards left if you’re searching for some moon resources for the new school year. These are the only cards of my range that are printed on beautiful 300gsm stock and sent to you. My other learning cards are all printable PDFs! ✌🏻🌑 #learningcards#makelearningfun#moonphaseashcards

When you spend a life caring, knowing how lives are troublesome and how many people have become heartless to protect themselves, facing the challenges to go through life which are millions of times stronger than you are, but still trusting that you’re skilled enough or brave enough to survive it....you become indebted to the people who don’t make it to the end and who've lost the will to carry on. Someone always leaves. Someone always chooses to give up. It’s just a matter of who, and when. You wish to give them your life so they can do more to fix themselves. You wish you could stop their hurting somehow, you wish you could give them some sign of hope, but it only gets more complicated. Something inside them snaps and that's it.. they're gone. Then you try to move on. You keep finding them in things that surround you. And you remember them.. with songs, with poems and flowers and art, and if possible - with photographs. That's it.
To the people who are living and trying to improve themselves a little bit everyday, Thank you for staying.🧡 #Nainital#uttarakhand#lakecity #peace#hope#stayalive#photography#nature#mypixeldiary#natgeo#visualsofearth #ig_captures#visualsoflife#ig_shotz #natgeoyourshot#photosofinstagram#phonephotography#beautifulday#pictures
Travelling green? It is never easy unless you are using a bicycle or your feet. :p But you gotta choose better options to get to the desired place sooner. :)
Trains are not perfect options :/ but they still have less environmental impact. And buses are better than trains.
Using an aeroplane accounts for 4-9% of the total climate change impact of human activity and is likely to double or triple by 2050. :'( Compared to other types of transport such as driving or taking a train, air travel has a greater climate impact per passenger per mile, even over longer distances.
So try to choose public transportation with less carbon footprint.
🌿💣 Next time, I'll remember to carry some seed bombs also, I'll throw them in rondom places while traveling (♡˙︶˙♡)
Aeroplanes emit hazardous gases into the atmosphere which contribute to climate change. -_-|| According to Directorate General of Civil Aviation, only two round trips from Mumbai to Delhi can generate about 20 percent of the greenhouse gases your car emits over a year!●_●
Isn’t that something to think about? So, for short distances, try to travel by train rather than by air and, once you get to your destination , choose public transportation or for really short distances go on a bicycle. Or study hard and make the aeroplanes eco-friendly. ^.^
You can look for certified green hotels that are working towards zero waste and are using renewable energy.
Or just buy fruits and less packaged food.
Travelling green may take a little extra effort initially, but it will soon become second nature for you. These extra steps you take can enhance every time you travel and you won't have any bad impacts on the places you visit.
Ps I've never been to an actual airport ever :D and I've seen a model of aeroplane in allahabad. And that was pretty big for me but I was smol back then. .
