This is more than just a #reflection
of me trying to keep my pearly whites. 😬It's also me taking a few minutes to reflect on the series of events in my #life
from the end of 2015 to present time.
Many turning of #leaves
if you will, occurred to end up where I am today. I've always leaned towards the more "healthy lifestyle" (at least the one that is portrayed to us as healthy), but a couple documentaries is all it took for me to realize those Ribeye steaks & the little dairy I did enjoy were about to be a thing of the past. If you want my personal favorite, watch Food Choices on Netflix. It dives into about every reason why being vegan is a wonderful lifestyle & proven to be the most truly healthy choice for most humans.
Yes, I said #lifestyle
because it only took about two days to realize this is going to be more than a #change
in food choice! Being as #natural
as possible in all of my choices (hygiene products, clothing, beauty products, etc.) is my focal point now. 2 questions as a buyer, Does this contain anything harmful to my body? Was any living being harmed in the process of making this item? In turn, it has allowed & pushed me to do something I have always known is better for all of us, spending my money with small businesses. There is someone out there making all of the products we use, but in a more pure form.
This shift has allowed me to take better care of myself, do my part in protecting the planet & animals, promote small business, therefore bringing more inner joy than other lifestyle options in my past. Preparing my own foods with my own two hands, before my very eyes has become enjoyable (even when I don't perfect what I'm making). Peeling a piece of #fruit
is enjoyable. #Joy
is inside of me more so now. And it's an amazing feeling to know that I'm doing my very best to live a life that doesn't harm anything. It's not about being #perfect
from the very start, because trust me you'll get a headache from knowledge overload. It's about being better than we were yesterday.
So here I am with my #bamboo #toothbrush
feeling more joyful than ever!! "I can't do all the good in the #world
. But the world can use all the good I can do." 🙏🏼🐮🐔🌎🌌
