“If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.” – Lao Tzu
Do you know where you are heading? (For all aspects of life)
Do you like the destination?
If not, today is a good day to turn the wheel and head somewhere better. (Leaner body, calmer mind, compassionate relationships, stronger connection to God…lots of options!!)
Recently, we chose to reduce the amount of animal-based products in our diet and increase the range of plant-based products. It has been pretty simple, no drama, no withdrawals, plenty of food to choose from and enjoy. This shift in direction is for 2 reasons – we want to be more physically healthy than ever before as we head into our 50s and we disagree vehemently with the mistreatment of animals for food (heavy hearts). No, we are not vegan; we are simply making choices daily that include more plant-based options.
All the research indicates a plant-based diet is best for optimum health and it is certainly better for the environment and the animals.
If you’re in doubt watch “Forks Over Knives’ “Vegucated” “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” among countless other documentaries.
I urge you to allow the profound quote from Lao Tzu to sink in and inspire a shift in a single element of your life. Today.
