Self-confidence Sunday!

I have been vegan for about two and a half months now. Ive had some odd looks from people when I’ve told them. I’ve had uncomfortable conversations with waiters at restaurants where i feel like I’m being ‘that awkward customer’ that no one wants to deal with. But i recently was having a conversation with a friend on the topic of animal welfare. He said he absolutely understood why people would be vegetarian/ vegan but his pessimism reared its ugly head when he thought about becoming vegetarian/ vegan himself. His view was along the lines of “what difference can one person make if everyone else eats meat anyway?”

Thats when i thought of this quote which i found on a little post it note. The biggest change can start with just one single person. Now, I’m not saying I’m going to make the world go vegan. But every time i choose not to buy animal products, i am doing ‘small things with great love’, i think where i choose to put my pound, makes a difference even if it only is a small one. Whatever your ‘thing’ is and whatever your passion is or whatever just feels right to you, stay true to it and you’ll never be disappointed.

  1. This is great; thank you for sharing this with me! Your quote reminded me very much of the following charge from one of my graduate school professors: “You change your piece of the world and I’ll change mine. Together we can all make a real difference, but it starts with you.”
