I went to the polls today to do early voting. I encourage you to do the same. Actually we vote everyday by what we choose to do and how we choose to act because “Economics is a value system masquerading as mathematics.”
This saying is a guiding light to me because it reminds me that every time I choose to buy or do something that requires use of my resource, I am voting. These actions demonstrate to others what I value because those choices are my vote on how I use my limited resources. This choice sends the message that more of the same should be provided.
All off our choices send a vote of what we say is important. I try only choose to spend my resources on what I want more of, not less in the world. Don’t we all want more of what makes us stronger, healthier and more resilient so we can have a better life? I try to keep this in mind with all the choices I make by think of the impact this choice has on the others and the world. Plant based foods for instance are good for me and the planet while animal agriculture has been shown to do damage to personal and planetary health.
As an example, today I voted for candidates that support sustainability and other helpful issues. I also voted for more greenways. After voting day I will continue to vote for the same by using the Greenways and encouraging others to do the same.
I encourage you to vote today and everyday on what will generate comprehensive improvements because it creates interactions so everyone and everything benefits. The Ivoted sight video site shares a great video that makes this point. I encourage you to watch the short video and vote today and everyday in ways that help everyone and everything benefit.
