Words to Live By

An every day is earth day reminder from Living the Good Life by Helen and Scott Nearing, 1954

Do the best you can, whatever arises

Be at peace with yourself

Find a job you enjoy

Live in simple conditions; housing, food, clothing, get rid of clutter

Contact nature everyday; feel the earth under your feet

Take physical exercise through hard work; through gardening or walking

Don’t worry; live one day at a time

Share something every day with someone else; if you live alone, write someone; give something away; help someone else

Take time to wonder at life and the world; see some humor in life when you can

Observe the one life in all things

Be kind to the creatures
