I just wanted to say thanks and hi to everyone whose topics I've commented on so far. I've been posting here for a while and hadn't realized it's kind of rude to not introduce myself because this is a pretty tightly knit forum. So hi, I just realized. :o)
I can remember one of the best times of my life I was called PJ, so let's just change my name from the "vegetize" thing. My real name is Patrick but my family calls me Pete. Way back in the way back time everyone called me PJ. My uppa called me that because of the pajamas he always saw me in. In fact, he passed when I was real young, but the cool side of my family kept calling me PJ. Then after my parent's divorce, everyone on both sides of my family started calling me PJ, so I'd like to stay with that... maybe it's a Dutch-Hungarian thing, what with my name.
I was an English major in school, so I can be cutting and short. I'm sorry if I appear rude - it's just that one thing a language arts education taught me is how to research - so my personality can be very narrow at times. Years of yoga have taught me some patience with the world. Running has shown me I can keep up with it.
Professionally I am a construction worker. I paint houses for a small company I have been around since I was a teenager. It's not my favorite work, but I really enjoy the guy I work for.
Someday, maybe when my 3 (!) kids are grown, I plan on having a natural chiropractic office that I either work inside of or lay bricks for. It would be cool to actually own my own practice or work in one, but I try to think inside the frame. Also, I had a huge meltdown when I was in college and almost got kicked out, so I'm not sure if this world is crazy about giving me more money for school.
Raw vegan living and pure sunshine with exercise has given me a ton of insight into what I want to do in life and even some positive joy about my roots. I can't wait to be a clear example of the change we can make in this life. Thanks to everyone who takes the time to read this, for sharing some part of it with me.
Thanks Ramu... :-)
Thanks for sharing. There are many ways to share holistic healing. Being a great example of eating a healthy vegan diet and spreading kindness and sometimes just listening to someone can bring profound healing in those who are receptive. I'm sure you would make a great chiropractor too!
Best of luck on your journey.
nice to meet you PJ Patrick Pete :P
