Unhappy

Canada is 3 hours away, and close enough to home I can return once in awhile.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

I am happy that I launched a blog this week

I am happy that my Crohns seems to be responding to my new meds

I am happy that I am losing my prednisone weight

It's like regular tofu, but made from hemp, not soy. I have to get mine at the local health food shop in the next town, so it's not too widely distributed...

I'm going to check it out. I don't like the texture of regular tofu very much.

There was a free taco lunch at work today and they actually had a vegan option! It was a crispy sweet potato fritter taco with pickled jalapenos and guacamole and some other stuff, also chips and salsa.

I had a great time with my mom at the cinema and we went out to an Italian restaurant that does an awesome vegetarian menu!

I feel spoiled

Incredibly grateful for the hard-learned awareness and innerstanding of the true happenings behind these misguidedly taught and portrayed traditional hellidays.

Even more grateful for the life experiences that have afforded me the opportunity to recognize and flip the script on the long and short-term effects of the energetic bodily consequences of consuming neglected and abused dead animal flesh and their various bodily secretions that are conveniently labeled by insurance companies as "symptoms".

Thankful for those who choose to consume truth and compassion rather than what's been heavily marketed and shoved down our throats and called tradition. Here's to the living things with no choice or no voice. I love you and apologize on behalf of the human race.

^^^I also am happy I just went to work on Friday and stopped off at the gym on my way home, not bothering with the shopping madness.

I'm happy that I had a conversation with a fellow yogi the other day, she is not veg*n but is open minded, and asked me about being vegan, so we were talking, and within that convo, I mentioned Cowspiracy, and then she actually went and watched it TWICE! ^_^ I don't think she's going veg*n anytime soon, but the seeds of information have been planted and that's a big step in the right direction!

While conversing about yummy vegan food with a colleague/friend who's vegetarian (and has been MUCH longer than me!) he told me that I'm his foodie spirit animal, and am inspiring him to try veganism again - made me want to do a little jig!! ^_^

I am happy that I decided to go vegan and went through with it, my pantry has no more animal products from today!

And I am happy to go to my volunteer work for the first time in two months, my health is slowly improving.

I had a great day at Vegfest, it was really lovely

I won a t-shirt by answering a quiz flawlessly and got myself a few treats even with my low budget.

I got two t-shirts and can actually wear them, last year I couldn't fit into anything because I was too big! Vegans are not the fattest of people, so that made me feel really good

I also got a mug for my collection and have a new volunteering job writing articles for a vegan website. So good news overall.

I am happy that I found some dark chocolate here in Chile that is 70-80% cocoa and less than half of the price of all the other dark choc and when I bought one (OK, three) it was just as good as the others!

I can now have as much chocolate as I want for the first time in a year of vegan diet - instead of feeling the need to make it a special treat due to price.

Feeling the need for a YAY!

Today I am happy that I've changed my lifestyle for years now, and as much as I don't pay attention to how long it's been I can appreciate the changes have made a big deal in the way that I live.

That's awesome! At first, I thought it was a shopping shipment you just received (as in food) but then saw they were books.
Kudos! I wish I would put the time into reading - maybe I will if I decide to go vegan in the future. For now I'm working on a healthy vegetarian lifestyle.
