Wellness On All Levels

“By eating meat we share the responsibility of climate change, the destruction of our forests, and the poisoning of our air and water. The simple act of becoming a vegetarian will make a difference in the health of our planet.”  ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Becoming a vegetarian has been a goal for me for many years. I tried many times, but it never lasted (I am a mid-western born, meat and potatoes raised individual). This time it is working – and I am very pleased. I have learned to cook with a vegetarian mindset, and to include protein powder whenever I can. I have made a note to myself to add protein powder to my next months Melaleuca order. (Which already has several items on it.) Now I have to decide whether I want regular protein powder, or a vegan alternative. Oh, wow … depending on which protein powder I order, I can get it in chocolate, classic vanilla, or strawberry!

I had a great time this am filling my bird feeders and watering my plants (all two of them!). I had to suggest to one little bird that he might want to leave the black sunflower feeder for a moment so that I could fill the feeder! This small space on my patio, which has always been a great place for me to relax, is becoming a true oasis!

I am looking forward to starting a line-by-line edit of “Invisible Me – Journeying Through The Soul”, which I co-authored with my friend Brad Tesh. It is already up on Amazon Kindle, but there were a few things that got by us (and a few things that are related to the formatting). We want to have the best book up possible, so this will be a very focused part of my writing journey.

Wishing you all a wonderful wellness journey!

The Beginning

Welcome to my journey. In my worldview, the journey that is our life begins before we are born, and continues on throughout our life. Here is where I am at in my journey: I am seventy years old, and in relatively good health (with the exception of dealing with IBS, and needing a hip replacement). I work from home and have worked for the same company for over twenty-two years. Before that, I worked for twenty-seven years as a medical technologist (ten of those years with the U.S. Army). I am a published author and am working to bring in a consistent profit from my writing.

I have seen many changes in my lifetime, and expect to see many more. I have tried several times over the years to follow a vegetarian lifestyle – not an easy task, as I was raised in the mid-west, with the meat and potatoes philosophy. This time it is working – and I fully intend to see that it continues to work.

My focus at this time is to follow a vegetarian lifestyle, to live a life of peace and harmony, and to use products that are nature-friendly. I will be sharing resources that I find that help me accomplish my goals. Hopefully, they will help you accomplish your goals too!
