I had some large-in-charge plans for last week and instead I ended up taking time for my spirit. I thought I only needed one day to be sad, but I guess I needed a little more. I had a different Christmas than I planned and my confidence shifted. With all this said, I’m over being upset about my wrecked plans and now I’m moving forward with a week missing. This Sagittarius can’t be down for too long.
One of my plans is picking up trash multiple times a week and hopefully leading into everyday routine. Today was day one. See, I have had this soul-pull to pick up the trash all last year. I used to do it every time I went on my daily walk, but with Covid happening, I’ve hesitated. I have looked away and watched in all of my experiences be surrounded by trash, litter around me. I haven’t from the mere germs of it all. Recently my soul has been screaming at me, so I bought these grabbers you’ll see in my video below. After today I will buy gloves too for next time. Lesson learned: Amazon grabbers with frosty snow is a no go.
I got my hands nice and dirty today and I was okay with it. I used the snow to clean my hands. It was a beautiful day a little chilly around 32 degrees out with the sun peeking through the clouds.
My expressway exit to my town has been bothering me since June. I got my grabbers in the mail yesterday and I told my stepson he needs to help me. My daughter will be helping me on as well, I get her back from her dad’s tomorrow.
With the snow at first it was hard to find anything, but the closer we got to the expressway the more we found. We picked up two bags full of bottles, cans, a life jacket, fuel can, car parts, a couple of buckets, and a super large piece of rusty metal. most likely a car piece.
We left things behind because I only thought two bags would be enough, but I see this area will take a while to clean up and I’ll most likely see plenty more after snow melts. So, join me on Tiktok under The Litter Collector or follow me here. After my commitment to myself gets stronger, I’ll have meetups for certain parts of the expressway, or streets that need a little love.
