Why I’m Passionate About Saving our Planet

I never know what a really wanted in life. I wasn’t even sure what are the things I am passionate about. I tried studying Medicine, but it wasn’t for me, and then I discovered art. I was in love with it that I wanted to build a career around it, but it didn’t work. Although, I still create every day because I know that deep within me, it’s one of the things I am passionate about.

Recently, I discovered another thing I am passionate about, and it’s the environment. I know a lot of people are sick of climate change and plastics in the ocean topics. But it’s real, and we cannot escape the fact that our world is slowly dying. So I have decided to write something about my passion for the environment.

Growing up, I was surrounded by nature. In fact, I love climbing hills, camping, running in fields, and swimming in rivers. I have never realized that nature has been a bigger part of my life, but now I know why I have such a strong feeling towards it.

They said to know what you are truly passionate about, you have to go back to your younger days, and I have found out that I am passionate about art, discovering things, and nature.

Another way I discovered my passion for the environment was when I decided to live a more sustainable life after watching Netflix’s documentary Our Planet. I am a sucker for environment or nature documentaries, but I was moved by this one in particular. After watching it, I said to myself that I don’t want to lose this planet. I don’t want to live in a world that’s dying. I want nature to thrive because without nature we cannot survive. Nature can live without humans, but we cannot live without nature. Therefore, it is only right for us to protect this world.

My dream of turning my art into business is not yet over because I’ll still find a way. And this new passion of mine, which is making the people around me aware of climate change, is just beginning. I know I’m not a perfect person, and I am trying to educate myself about how to live a life with less impact on the planet. I am slowly taking steps towards it, and in here I’ll document the things I do to make a change in this world and my life.

Come join me in this wonderful, passionate adventure of saving this only planet we have.
