How often do we really pause? Pause, admire and feel gratefulness towards the nature that surrounds us.
Take a moment and appreciate everything that the ecosystems provides us with. Our whole society, all the cities, our houses, our food, our cars are built up by services from ecosystems. Another example, trees, they gives us air and provide carbon sequestration, they help control our climate, they prevent flooding, they keep our soil healthy, and so on. These services and values are often not accounted into our regular way of thinking when it comes to economic capital. How much do we actually need to pay when exploiting natural resources? Do we even know?
Ecosystems are complex things built on the connection between every organism in the system. If one organisms disappear or changes it means that a whole ecosystem can change or disappear. In other words treat everyone with respect and carefulness.
In this moment one organism (me) pauses and connects with thousands of other organisms in this particular ecosystem.
So next time passing a tree or enjoying nature, pause, admire and feel gratefulness towards all our fellow organisms keeping us alive.
