I hope you are all doing good.
I am in this early phase of life after college, which I heard is one of the most difficult stage especially because of the economy and just the way life works; starting something for the first time is always difficult. I digress because that's for a completely different blog post.
During this time I have a lot of alone time which I love because I get to think research and brainstorm. I get to be more spiritual and think about how to better my life.
Work and school can get us caught up that we don't have time to pause, breathe, be present and think of life.
I am at the stage in my life where I am discovering exactly who I am and what I want in life.
I am a working progress, we all are.
I feel the purpose of life is to be HAPPY.
I want to feel great, energetic, and whole.
To achieve this, I am really considering becoming a whole food vegetarian (with no dairy and processed food in my diet).
Which means no those cookies, candy, milk chocolate (only pure organic dark chocolate), process salts and sugars.
After my research on what exactly is on the shelves in the stores. I am sold on the idea of becoming a vegetarian.
It's going to be a challenge that I will take it day by day. I am African and grew up eating meat.
Family, friends, the media, and work place can make it difficult. However, I willing to work and face the temptations and focus on the big picture.
Think of all the diseases that can be prevented or reduced; heart diseases, obesity, diabetes, cancer and so on.
Due to our
diet 'eating lifestyle', they gradually creep on the human population and surface when we get older and our system is frail.
Health is wealth.
Think about this.
Energy has to be put in for energy to come out.
If we eat dead animals, processed food, food meant for other animals, synthesized food and chemicals, what do we get out?
(Hold that thought)
How about when we eat the foods that are fresh, and in their most natural and whole form, what do we get out?
good GREAT and radiate it, we have to put good into our bodies and minds. What we eat, drink, and think matters.
My philosophy: Positive perception and good things are what we need for a happier life.
