A New Veganning

Good Day my veggie loving folks. Can you believe it's the end of the year? And to think it seems like yesterday when we elected our first president of African descent. But taking a look back, what have you improved in your life? Let's look past what we are eating into what we are thinking. How we are conducting our lives day to day. I feel compelled to talk about this because just the other night I had a dream that I would travel and be able to tell folks about healthy living, vegan/vegetarianism, and great vegetarian hotspots in the south and beyond. My own show! I am thinking WOW! If my subconscious is showing me this then in my waking hours I must manifest this. My thoughts must stay positive as I am guided through what I should do to make my dreams a reality.

Lately, I've been listening and reading information from Anthony Robbins, the well known motivational speaker. One of the nuggets of wisdom that I have heard him mention was that during these times of change we have to continue to train our minds. Train our thinking. For years I have read information from many motivational and spiritual teachers and changing your thoughts, guarding your thoughts, training the mind to focus on the positive is the common link they all have. With those thoughts though, you have to take action. One of my favorite sayings is "faith without works is dead". We have put things into motion. I have had many people say to me, "I want to be a vegetarian, but…". Well, you can think I want to be vegetarian all you want, but until you start taking action, taking steps towards that, it will always come back to wanting and not doing.

So, in 2010, what are we going to do to improve not only ourselves but our surroundings? I recently read an article by Dr. Wayne Dyer that resonated with my spirit. He spoke of filling needs. If there is a need for something in your community then how can you fill it? In thinking about what we want for our lives, how can we help others? If there is no lack in the Universe then when we help others we help ourselves. Personally, I am looking forward to volunteering my time at various community kitchens and working with food banks. I will continue to share my recipes and show others how cook well, eat healthy, and take care of their bodies. I will continue to love my family and be the best mother, wife, sister, daughter, friend I can be. What that said, I need to finish by recipe backlog so that I can get something tasty up for folks to try. Have a great New Year and I look forward to sharing a great year of food and fun with you. Live on, Eat well!
