I have begun sharing my new decision with friends and family. I am so encouraged by all those who are vegans or vegetarians who have offered their support. I am hoping that by blogging this I will be able to help others. This has been quite a journey for me. I have learned so much already and I haven't even started...lol. We...I...cleaned out the pantry and the refrigerator. I kept the butter because we are cooking dinner at Christmas and I pomised my family Turkey. We also have some salad dressings for others. We kept some canned tuna because I know Tim would buy some more anyway. Everything else that had poison in it had to go. We got rid of a lot. It was cathartic. I am starting to feel free-er. Not sure if that is a word.
I am also looking at adding meditation into my life. I am also thinking about going back to school to get my PhD. I want to teach when I grow up. Am I having a mid-life crisis? Maybe I am...I did buy a new car last year. I woke up and realized that I am not exactly where I wanted to be in my life at this point. I am not doing the things to make me happy. Teaching and traveling makes me happy. I will be working towards making that happen.
I know these thoughts will just get more intense as my body begins to cleanse and clear out toxins. It becomes an emotional cleanse as well. This is good I think. I have read that with the type of change in lifestyle I am undertaking, I will have more clarity of thought. I look forward to that.
I will welcome whatever change comes out of this transformation.
