Heej everyone,

How are you all doing? Haven't been around here for a while, not because everything was OK, not because every was the opposite, just because of a lack of time, energy, and motivation to help. There has been a lot of thinking the last couple of months, about what to do with the life that is given me. What is worth the limited amount of time and energy we have. So right now, I am nearing the end. This planet with all its wonderful creations is worth fighting for. Not only the human, but everything that lives has an equal right to do so. I've stopped eating meat (only once or twice a month, and only "good" meat), and started taking care of some plants as well. Yeah, a fairly moderate start, but hee, have to start somewhere. On the schedule is the installation of a bunch of solar panels, and I am going to study something called "future planet study" at the university here.

So that's for me. For you around here, Peter somehow chose today to make me moderator, a bit an odd timing, but I see it as a message that the time has come to get back here :-). So I try to be around more often. Just with work, I can't be on during daytime, though my email is always open! (secretly linked it to my work email, sssshhhh....).

If you have any questions, or other things to say, don't hesitate to ask! The silence lasted long enough :-).

Take care!

Acceptance is the key

The World is but a reflection. Smile, and it will smile back.

Try to keep smiling! :)

Hi Erik,

I've been struggling over the past few days with a lack of time and energy, too, so I understand where you're coming from. I know we all go through difficult times, and after all, that is why we all came to be members here on the forum. Guess what? I am now a new moderator as well. Like you, I see this as a message to stay close to HW, and I do believe that everything happens for a reason. I have come to value the support on this forum and the relationships I've developed here, and I will look forward to being a new mod with you and the others.

I am so glad to hear that you are starting to figure out how to reconcile reaching your goals with maintaining your values. Those sound like fantastic ideas & all those "little things" really do add up. You are an inspiration to us all.

Hi Erik, good to meet you... Im sure you will be a great mod. I understand lack of time and energy, there just never seems to be enough of either...

Ive been working on just letting stuff go... If I cant easily help it, fix it or reschedule it then maybe I should just forget it. Its so draining to worry and stress all the time.
