The Veg Life

Hiya guys.

I have been a vegetarian since July 7th 2016. So from when I’m writing this exactly a year. That to me blows my fricking mind and I don’t even know how I did it. I was an avid meat lover and when it came my way there was no way of getting it back.

I never watched those videos where it showed exactly what happens until then and when I did I embarrassingly cried a little (BTW I cry at everything). However it was a realisation that if that’s how I reacted to a video I didn’t want to be the one to be doing it so I became VEGGIE! I don’t regret it at all and for me it’s quite fun as I get to find to many new things I would’ve never tried prior to being a vegetarian.

I’m not one of those people who will sit her and tell you how disgusting or weird you are for eating meat but I will say one thing. If you’re thinking about it just go for it. It’s going to be a matter of trial and error but that’s ok. Yes I did mess up that’s fine. Don’t ever beat yourself up for messing up. Also try not to get pissed off at the people who ask stupid questions like “would you eat meat if you were on a dessert island and that’s all you had”. They’re just curious and honestly they’re impressed. I did the exact same thing when I found out my friend was a veggie and I thought it was crazy when really I was sooooooo impressed with her.



For the Good

Hiya Guys.

I think that the future can understandably be one of if not the most terrifying thin ever for most people. It’s one of those things that you can guess but never be 100% sure about. I’m definitely a “live in the moment” type of gal but certain thing can defo get me scared for the future. I know ten years is a long long time seeing as of only lived for just over a decade so when you put that into perspective its well over half my life.

A short while ago I attended a funeral and one thing that really struck me and made me think was a section of a poem my uncle had read. I drowned out most of the poem thinking but as soon as I heard it, it made me smile just a bit. The very final sentence was “…..and never be afraid to die”. This is something my younger self would’ve completly over looked as I used to have a extreme fear of death and dying. I would wake up and be so incredible scared but now I think back I don’t even know why.

As much as I don’t want to die and I’m still a little bit scared I know when I do the time comes it will be right. I heard a quote that I strongly believe in which is “for the good”. Everything is for the good. At the time it may be devastating and it won’t make sense, but it will.
