So I try not to be so aggressive when it comes to my vegan lifestyle, but recently so many (mainly celebrities) are getting under my skin.

Vegan vs Plant Based

Being vegan means you take nothing from an animal. It is not a diet but a complete lifestyle change.

Having a plant based diet; is exactly that… a diet. You are not changing anything but what you eat.

There are too many (mainly celebrities) that keep exclaiming that they have gone vegan, but what they really mean is that they have gone plant based.

Too many (mainly celebrities) are using veganism to boost their popularity, but it actually just annoys me and makes them look shallow.

Going vegan is a big decision and is usually triggered by some animal abuse that just pushes you over the edge or like most people I’ve seen, were vegetarian and moved to veganism because they felt they could do more.

I have big respect for all that become vegan to change the planet and protect it.

But it upsets me that because of those seeking popularity are hindering the good that is trying to be done from true vegan activists.

I’m including a link, but I’m going to warn you it has some very disturbing/graphic images of animal cruelty. This is Earthlings and I’m adding it because if you truly care about animals and being vegan, this will impact you.

I watched this and instantly went vegan and that was a lifestyle change not a diet.

Rant over… for now!

When I look at the people that speak about being enlighten or woke; they are usually men and I was wondering why men find it so easy to be in the present moment and believing the ideology of nothing is real but a creation of speaking into ones existence.

I realized that personally I find the idea scary.

I have just become a mother and the idea that in my death I will no longer remember my child or the life I have just left, frightens me. My mortality has become a real issue for me and I live in hope that when I die, I will not forget this experience.

When people talk about reincarnation I find that it must mean that our old life is forgotten. Some people even talk about us being one with the universe but they never talk about an experience of love for the people they have known in their lifetime.

So the reason why I am writing this post was due to a video I watched on YouTube.

At 2:38 of the video a woman explains her near death experience and I realize that I’ve had a similar story. I never forgot the experience but I didn’t realize that I had a near death experience until I listened to her story.

This made me think about my daughter and if I were to die will I remember my love for her?

Throughout life whether we join a religion or not, there is a collective question:

What happens when we die?

We are very unlikely to get an answer to this question but i do belive that dying is quite peaceful. (from my near death experience.)
