You know who you all are, 14 - 20something and you "get it". You get it in a way that many people 2 and 3 times your age don't. They invent all kinds of mental gymnastics to justify what they think about animals, meat, etc. And you simply cut to the chase and cut out all the BS.
Well, I think it's awesome! I wish I had known at your age, what you know. I know you will probably get all kinds of flak from friends and family, so let me just say preemptively, well done! You rock! :)
I've seen quite a bit of brilliance from you guys lately around here and it makes me really excited to see. I sometimes feel bad when I look around and it seems like the human race has all taken stupid pills or something and then I see all these flashes of brilliance from you guys, giving me hope. Thanks! and keep up the good work! :)
:) Glad to! It's hard to not respond when I see such excellence from you all!
Thank you :) I feel so fortunate that I found this lifestyle as soon as I did. It pains me to see my family and friends damaging their bodies without ever making the connection between what they eat and how they feel. I wish they at least understood why I do what I do. They support me, but they don't get it.
It is tough to see loved ones choose to suffer, but it's awesome that they support you, that says a lot about them! :) I bet as you thrive, they'll notice and in their own time, they will come around.
One of my fave quotes is:
"Be the change you wish to see in the world".
You are doing just that!! Love life and continue to be that inspiration for the world to see. Don't stress or stumble over anyone else's choices.
It's true, once you know the connection between diet and everything else (mind, body, thoughts, quality of life, etc.), you really do want the world to know! It becomes such a discovery, personally, doesn't it! Like a major lightbulb goes off and BAM!
Be the best you and surrender the rest~~~~
Oh! Thank you so much. As a 16 year old HCRV (HCRV since 15), I certainly feel better than ever :)
I'm a 16 year old HCRV too! I feel better than ever also :)
Awesome Hannah! :)
That's wonderful, well done! :)
Thanks Chris :) really appreciate the encouragement as a 19yo high-carber :D I only wish I had found this lifestyle even sooner, I was hoping and wishing for something like this!!
I keep seeing and hearing people taking about diets and dieting, just the other day in my local health food store, the colleagues were discussing protein and checking out packet labels, moaning about how much fat is in some of their products. My Aunt is a "serial dieter" and never seems to realise what true health is ((she's still pretty overweight after years of this..)), it seems almost crazy that the world is this way, when we know that there is such a simpler way, a truly healthy AND happy lifestyle out there. But would they ever listen?? :( I just hope that some of us younger ones can help to spread the message and inspire others as you all do!!
Rawk on, JuiceGirl!
