I was within three weeks away from walking, and now trying to accept what I can't change.
I feel safe in the wheelchair, but extremely self-conscious and like everyone will be starting, buy after my major fall this morning, I know it is needed.
You guys, I've officially been vegan for 1 year Here's a few things I've learned:
1. Veganism is not just a diet, it's an ideology.
2. Vegan food actually tastes good, especially burgers
3. Plant based foods strengthen the connection between the mind & body.
4. We must live amongst animals, and they deserve respect.
5. Our everyday choices actually matter.
As humans, we should maintain a fluid approach to learning & gaining new perspectives. Do not fear change, as it is the only thing that is constant. I'm grateful that I educated myself & took on a 2-week challenge that changed my life, and saved lives along the way Lastly, nobody sold veganism to me. It wasn't on commercials or billboards. It was a choice which has liberated me more than I could have ever imagined Much Lve #morelife#compassion#freedom#vegan#happy#accountability#feminism#environmentalist#Icare#healthy#conscious

My heart was bleeding, I felt like a baby crying over my painful sometimes cystic Acne, I almost always wore my hair down to cover my face, Once a leader in community and social events I now hated social events. I had four young boys who deserved the extroverted, fun loving, freedom to adventure individual I just couldn’t seem to find inside! I was stuck- I tried everything- I decided I was just going to have to live with bad skin- after all it could be MUCH WORSE. I was being too critical of myself I once again sought a Dr. all acne meds from the dermatologist had mass amounts of toxic chemicals and or consisted of many needles in my face loaded with toxic chemicals. This was not an option for my body I don’t even like taking ibuprofen. Water and a wash cloth worked ok if I washed every night and am and mid day to remove makeup to put on a fresh make-up mask. It’s safe to say I was... #gainingweight#gettinglazy#goingbonkers do I just #livewithit#itwillbeok#noonecares#icare#tears#fears#lettinggooffear to flash forward I was voted #PTApresident after one year on the committee #bigyear#changes#raised120k for a new playground at the local school #sciencenight drew in the largest crowd to our local school EVER #community#servetude#istillhadacne#stopstaringatmypimples#zits not zits #blemishes (thanks Momma)
This is a reminder to everyone out there - you have to start somewhere whether it's for recovery, self love, new lifestyle choices, mental health - everyone starts somewhere. We all may not have the same start but if we all encourage everyone on their journey, no matter what it is, that start will seem easier some may be scared to take the leap of faith it requires for their start, but just know in a month or a year's time you'll look back and be super proud of yourself for what you've done and achieved - and you know what? It all starts with YOUR start (Ft random thoughts on the train)
