Just for Today

Just For Today ………
 
Just for today, I will opt to ride my bike to work. It’s only five miles and less that ½ hour commute each way. In doing so I will get a little exercise and spew a little less carbon into the air.
 
Just for today, I plan to grab a veggie sandwich for lunch. The evidence seems to indicate I will not only do my body a lot of good by forgoing the meat but  possibly may be even have a more significant impact on my environmental footprint by forgoing the burger.
 
Just for today, I’m will skip the bottle of mid-afternoon soda, tea, juice, water and fill my ceramic mug with a cold glass of tap water and a couple of ice cubes.
 
Just for today, I plan to create a simple vegetarian dish for dinner. It’s not my intent to deprive the rest of my family of their meat fix so I’ll prepare them something else.
 
Just for today, I will walk to the local convenience store this evening to pick up the few items we need instead of hopping in the car for a 5 minute ride.
 
Just for today, I promise to not to get on my “green” high horse and preach to others all the good things I’m doing for myself and the environment. 
 
Maybe tomorrow I may repeat a similar routine but more likely and despite my best intentions I will probably come up short. 
 
Maybe tomorrow, a co-worker might say, I think it’s time I stopped buying all these water bottles that I bring to work each day.
 
Maybe yesterday, I made a tiny impact without saying a word?
