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.
No time like the present.

I have been vegan for more than a week now
It's never been as easy as now, I was really ready. So happy!

I am going to a Christmas market today, those are always fun.

Am happy to see I've gone down a dress size but not lost weight, I've gained muscle from all the cardio I have done

I am happy that I'm earning a little extra $$$ for the holidays taking care of the neighbor's dog. And I got all my holiday shopping done today.

I'm happy that I can finally comfortably exist in a space with no helliday expectations that do nothing but trigger memories of abuses and horrors of previous hellish experiences. Now, if I could just avoid the hoopla (dead flesh and bodily secretions of animals, xmas carols, wasteful energies via extra lights, mass consumerism of things that never break down in a landfill, harsh smells that disrupt our endocrine system, etc.) everywhere else, life would be great.

So many emotional foundations were built up on falsities and fake stories that we never had a chance to question. So many left feeling "less than" each "special" time of year because they can't live up to fictional familial and traditional expectations.

What a vicious cycle of self-torture we've agreed to partake in, mindlessly, year after year, that also includes the senseless death of other living things so we can "celebrate". Forgetting that every day is a helliday, every meal is a banquet.

Happiest to be able to spread little daily joys outside of the pretty little wrapped boxes and such, although most call not being festive and playing into the particular scenes being favored in the moment as being a scrooge. lol What a strange world we inhabit.

I have got the most Christmas cards of my life. Since I've been diagnosed with ASD it has become so much easier to make friends. I feel blessed

It's been a great week. Looking forward to 2017. Things are going well.

I now do volunteer work for a vegan charity! I love it

And am looking forward to the celebration tonight. New Year's eve is my favourite of the year.

My mom and I made a fantastic vegan spread.

Love the first day of the year

Yes I am fine, had a saddle embolus in 2015 and survived that too.

They figured out why I keep having them so from now on it should not happen again

Good. I'm happy the Doctors found out what was wrong with you and fixed it.

I'm happy I finally have an appointment with a new therapist after learning my usual one had to move. It feels good to have someone to work with.
