My journey is a spiritual one and it started in May 2008. But things really took off last January when I finally said goodbye to coffee. The fear I could not get through the day without the morning fix was, as all fears are, an illusion. It felt great! And then last April I decided to become a vegetarian and I also chose to have a gluten-free diet. I kept this healthy new way of life and in September I finally gave up milk and milk-based food.
Starting this year as a vegan I think was the next step.
What can I say? Being healthy is great, having great skin is also amazing. But the psycological impact of one’s diet is huge! Getting rid of all the toxins that we ingest is a pivotal step in taking care of ourselves. And once those horrible things are out of our system….miracles happen. I started to have more and more confidence in myself. Now I am taking care of myself! It’s as if being a vegan cured most of my fears. I say most of them because this is an ongoing journey. I’m on the right track and feeling so empowered! It feels as if the weight of the world was lifted off my back.
There are soooo many things I could tell you about how great my life has become. But I choose to say this – try being vegan for a month. Open your heart and mind and take a leap of faith. You are such an amazing unique being and you deserve time and attention. Purify your body, and your mind and life follow through.
Love and light, Cristina
