I said it a thousand times. I could NEVER be vegan.⠀ ⠀ After telling people I've been vegetarian since age 5 (which at this point is 20+ years) I'd often follow up that statement with but I could NEVER be vegan! and I honestly thought I couldn't. I was letting negative thoughts determine my future, and really, just making a giant mountain out of a molehill!!! (as us humans do quite often haha) ⠀ ⠀ I thought it would be too big, too hard, and that I don't naturally have the self-control to be able to see it through. I felt that about a lot of my healthy eating goals, so being vegan was just another one added to the pile of things I'd like to do when I'm old and maybe gain some self-control... or whatever... if ever. ⠀ ⠀ Turns out, I CAN do it. ⠀ Turns out, self-control is something that can be created. ⠀ Turns out, being vegan really isn't that hard!! I was absolutely making it 1,000x harder in my head than it actually is. ⠀ ⠀ AND this is all coming from someone who basically only ate cereal and mac and cheese and now eats kale for breakfast consistently 😂 (and loves it). ⠀ ⠀ I just had to share all of this because: ⠀ 1. I’m really happy 🥰⠀ 2. I’m all about our beautiful Earth 🌎 ⠀ 3. If you have a desire to change your eating habits in any way, shape or form, but feel like you can't, I understand. Please get in touch with me! I am happy to share what helped me in case it could help you too! ⠀ ⠀ Now, I gotta go and tend to the load of folks messaging me about this from last night's stories! Yay! ⠀ ⠀ #jonibilderbackphotography
