These monthly challenges are your opportunity to cultivate your own acres. They are designed to challenge your creativity, test your will power, and pull your awareness to the footstep you are leaving behind.
By participating in these challenges and sharing them with others you are spreading the message. Over time, those around us will be making better choices as well. The goal is not to change how you live your life, but rather think about the implications of those choices and tweek them for the best outcome.
NOVEMBER CHALLENGE: GIVE BACK || VOLUNTEER
This entire month is dedicated to gratitude and Thanksgiving. Especially in light of recent events on the east coast, it is more important than ever to be thankful for what we have and give back what we can. Cultivating an community of thanksgiving brings living a 4(for) green acres life full circle. We cannot live on this earth without the love and support of those around us. Family and strangers alike.
This month's challenge has to come from your heart. Find a need in your community, or venture out beyond your boundaries to offer help. Think about adopting a family for the holiday season or volunteer your time at food pantry. During the holidays they get swamped with food for needy families. Consider adopting an elderly person in your neighborhood and spend time with them. Start a community garden by developing an organization team now to start in the spring. There are many ideas that come to mind, but it comes down to what feels right for you and your family.
Have fun with it and post back here what you have planned. It's fun to share with others and it's great to share ideas.
