I got these questions from Danielle’s blog Underland to Wonderland, where I came across a post in which she talked about the website Thought Questions and their 365 thought-provoking questions to ask yourself. My friends Katrin, Celeste and Jasmine have also been answering these questions, so be sure to go check out their blogs too!
Day 53: What is the most defining moment of your life thus far? Probably the moment I decided to radically revise my diet (including going veg) to solve a health problem. I decided that I was tired of not feeling good and just decided I would make up my own plan to deal with it. This decision to be less passive and more assertive then bled through across the rest of my life: my overall health, my job, my relationships with other people, etc. Choosing to go your own way instead of letting life happen to you is a powerful thing.
That’s fantastic you solved a health problem because you became vegan! I guess there are only pros and no cons. :)
I certainly think so!
That certainly is life changing. I’ve gone vegetarian twice–once for four years and once for one year–and plan to go back to it after the baby. I loved it and you feel SO MUCH better! I am glad that you went this route for your health instead of pills or something–so much healthier and better for you. My kids hated doing vegetarian at first but recently my oldest son asked me if we could go back to it for his skin. Not too shabby!
That’s awesome that your son finally got into it! It’s great when kids want to do something healthy without being pushed.
I just commented–did it go through? Darn internet! Always when I have a long comment. Basically I feel ya. I have done the vegetarian thing and it works wonders. Glad to hear it has helped you with your health!
what a great point. In anything in life..it is best to do your own thing! Thanks for the reminder.
So very true!
The only con is that other people think that any health problem you might have MUST be related to your diet. Wrong!!
That quote is so true, we need to take control of our lives.
I get that ALL the time. So annoying.
The most defining moment of my life is when I found the courage to be myself and not let anyone tell me who or what I should be like. I was raised in a very strict and traditional culture and social environment so it took a long while for me to get over all that stuff that they brain washed me with.
It takes a lot of courage to grow up and break away like that!
