What brought me to this revelation or thought process you ask? If you've followed any of my previous posts, you know I've suffered a long time from a disease called PCOS. This disease makes it difficult if not impossible to lose weight. You've read that I've tried every diet known to man and have recently started a quest towards healthier and natural living. (in short, I've become a Vegantarion.) Yes I purposely misspelled that. As far as eating goes, I would be considered vegan. No meat, fish, dairy, eggs or anything made with any of the above. HOWEVER, I don't not begrudge anyone who chooses to kill a cow because they like steak and burgers. That would be the big identifying differences. True vegans do not approve of animals/animal prodcuts being used for anything....which would include milk in lotion, leather for jackets, and boots an belts. I truely believe as long as you are making good use of the animal, who am I to tell you what to do. Not to mention, my favorite jacket of all is my black leather jacket hanging in my closet. However, vegetarians do eat some dairy and eggs. So, since I'm somewhere in the middle, I've labeled myself a vegantarian. LOL
Anyway, since eating all healthy foods, I've noticed a subtle change in my priorities and my spiritual walk. It's like the temple is cleaned out now and is looking to replace the junk with good stuff. I do still need to work on time management. That's always been a problem of mine but here lately, I've found myself wanting more of God. I've been in a stagnant place for so long though that I'm having a hard time getting my engine running. I'm having to do a tune up on myself. Spending more "quality" time with the kids is becoming more important to me. Reading Christ based books and listening to Christian music is becoming a bigger priority. I just feel that as the junk is being weeded out, my spirit is thirsting for something bigger and better. You know that feeling you get in your mouth when you are so thirsty and nothing can quench it. You search and you search for just the right drink and just the right amount but you aren't satisfied until you've found that right thing and that right amount? That is my spirit man at this moment.
