Ever since I made the choice to become vegan, I've wanted everyone i know to realize what I realized.
I share information, pictures, food alternatives; yet rarely does anyone really consider making the choice to become vegan.
It becomes discouraging when I'm sharing something I'm truly passionate about, something that tugs at my heart everyday, yet no one else sees it that way.
Of course I know this world is full of people who share the same understanding of animals as I do, but those who are closest to me do not.
So this is something I have to remind my self everyday, every "vegan joke", every "oh I'm sorry you can't eat this". Hope you all enjoy your sunday!
I'm relatively new to Instgram and often find that, although there are some profiles with amazing content, social media has a wonderful way of making everything seem airy-fairy. A lot of posts about ideals with no real beliefs.
I'd like to think I wear my heart on my sleeve and although this pains me to admit so openly, I feel that I must in order to make a valid point.
My number one, biggest regret in life: Carnivorism.
I've found it really difficult forgiving myself and to be honest, I don't think I ever will.
I have been fortunate enough to have always been surrounded by nature and animals throughout my life and ironically, have always considered myself to be an 'animal lover'. How wrong could I have been.
Animal lovers do not eat animals.
No animal should be treated any differently from another.
Every animal has a soul and every soul is equal.
When I look into the eyes of an animal I see nothing but purity, innocence and above all, life.
So when we label ourselves as an 'animal lover', are we truly a lover of all animals?
It's never too late to put your thoughts and beliefs into action. Dedicate yourself to the one thing you believe in with all your heart and soul. There's no need to push your opinion onto others when the energy emitting from that idea, is strong enough for everyone to feel around you.
Love and light to you all!
To sing you must first open your mouth
You must have a pair of lungs
And a little knowledge of music
It is not necessary to have an accordion, or a guitar
The essential thing is that I want to sing
Then this is a song, I'm singing
I breathe in and I create
Rewoke the spirit sixty eight
Fresh meaning to torn ideas
Let's bring life to old clichés
Punch a hole in tradition
Yeah, let's listen
To the songs of discontent
The chords and the movement
It could all be so simple
We would all stand baffled by the precision and accuracy
Our jaws would hurt from dropping
So hard, fast and unexpected
It would be the perfect metaphor
It would be the perfect song we'd be singing
I breathe out and I scream
Rewoke Malatestas dream
Inspiration from the past
Focus to the future at last
Fixed dogmas can't substitute
Creative thought and action
We could be dangerous
Art as a real threat
And all it is is words
Words said a million times before
And all it is is a song
A song sung a million times before
I breathe in and I create
Rewoke the spirit '68
I breathe out and I scream
Rewoke Malatestas dream
I didn't really have the opportunity to announce yesterday, but yesterday, September 22, 2017, marked a year of me being #VEGAN . I am so proud of myself and I'm so glad I made this decision a year ago, the best decision of my life. I was awakened, I was enlightened, I found something I was passionate about and wanted to learn more about exponentially. I have to thank Sorsha Morava for transitioning me and opening my eyes. She's very disliked in the Youtube Vegan community, but I owe her everything. I cannot wait for the rest of my Vegan life. #GOVEGAN
#WhatVegansEat had this for dinner tonight from @nativefoodscafe . One Big Ol Burger with cashew cheese, #Vegan ranch, barbecue sauce, crispy shallots, tempeh bacon, and lettuce. It came with a side salad (that I'm eating as I write this) that comes with, I believe, a lemon vinaigrette dressing? I don't know lol but it dank. As an appetizer, I also bought their crispy buffalo "wings", and lil fun fact about me: Buffalo sauce IS MY SHIT !!! 😩
Happy Birthday Hemi Goodwin-Burke
Little Hemi, known to his family as H-Bomb, would have been 4 years old today, Please join us in lighting a candle for him.
Rarely do stories affect us at FACAA the way little Hemi's story did, it could have been his curly black hair, it could have been his big brown eyes, it could have been his smile that would light up a room (quoted from his Dad the awesome Shane Burke) or it could have been the shocking injustice that befell him..... we simply don't know what it was but this case hit us like a freight train.
Tonight we will not be discussing the crime or the perpetrator that took poor Hemi from his family and his mum and dad, Kerri-Ann and Shane.
Tonight his family have asked that our members join them in lighting a candle for little H-bomb and remembering the boy that was Hemi :) We could not have said it better than his mother Kerri-Ann did when she wrote this poem for Hemi on his birthday.
Happy 4th Birthday Hemi (H-bomb)
I wish you were here today
even for just a little while
so I could say Happy Birthday "son"
and see your beautiful smile.
The only gifts today will be
the gifts you left behind;
The laughter, joy and happiness...
precious memories...the best kind.
Today I'll do my very best
to try and find a happy place...
struggling to hide my heavy heart
and the tears on my face.
I'll sit quietly and look at your picture
thinking of you with love;
hoping you're doing ok
in Heaven up above.
May the angels hold you close and
sing you a happy song...
and I'll be sending wishes to you
today and all year long.
Mummy loves an Miss you so much!
Happy Birthday Hemi, we at FACAA and many many more are fighting to get you the justice you deserve little champion ! (A)
#KENNEKAJENKINS This for you baby girl R.I.P @kennekascase / #payattention | someone wanted to speak up but didn't out of fear which is understandable if you from the hood you know wsup but it's no #coincidence that this #Anonymous page for #kennekajenkins posted these tweets, interesting enough Shamaya is the girl Kenneka handed her keys too when they first got to the hotel. She is also the girl believed to have given the drink to Kenneka if you watch the video & listen closely she walks out the bathroom with a drink & says "I'm gone give this to that girl over there." The other girl follows her out the bathroom but winks at the camera & says "who" then Shamaya walks straight to Kenneka with a Drink 🥃as seen in the photos. Look at the photos listen to the audio on the video posted by someone on twitter the video is from their live that night. Do not stop asking questions do not stop seeking justice people may say you are crazy don't believe the hype. The eyes don't lie #KennekaJenkins deserves justice & it's up to ALL OF US to put everything together until the #truth comes out. Do it for #KennekaJenkins do it for her mother - family & true friends.
We are #Anonymous
We are #Legion
We do not forget
We do not forgive..
Expect Us. #justiceforkenneka#ChiTown#Chicago#Chiraq#STANDUP#voiceforthevoiceless
So for the past 2 months I haven't been able to post frequently due to my iPhone breaking. Well I have great news; I GOT THE NEW IPHONE 8. So I'm baaackkk, ready to annoy the shit out of Carnists ((:::
In celebration, here are some #Vegan foods I enjoyed over the past 2 months. #WhatVegansEat
It's has been a fight just to get this paper work on myself about my childhood in care. I have been informed by the government it is 'in public interest' I can't have my files.I say corruption at its finest. I was 10 years old and found to be a neglected child, which I was imprisoned to a life of bashings, torture, sexual assault at the hands of a government run institution. My brother took his own life as he could not handle what happen to us. I post this to raise awareness and make positive changes for children in care. Its not about me it's about protecting the future of unprivileged children. I had a private session with the Royal Commission this week and they were as disgusted as me why my file had pages missing and pages heavily redacted, why have a RC if everything isn't brought to the table?!! #childawareness#protectchildren#stopchildabuse#voiceforthevoiceless#formybrother#supportsuicideprevention#ruok#royalcommision#lostchildhood#corruption

I used to live in the gym but spend my morning's loading up on eggs, drinking skinny lattes at work and having the odd chocolate bar now and again. These last 10 months as a vegan have improved my health in so many ways. I've lost a stone in weight, just by cutting out dairy and no longer am I plagued with bloating and that awful sluggish feeling. I often say to people when they ask me 'but don't you miss milk and eggs and cheese?!'... 'give my lifestyle a go for a week and tell me how you feel'. Most won't even attempt it but with time I believe the vegan message will reach far and wide and get people actively thinking about how they can change their bodies, their health, their mind but most importantly, they can put an end to needless animal suffering 💜🌱 #vegan#veganfoodshare#whatveganseat#plantbased#plantbasedprincess#proud#weightloss#journey#fortheanimals#voiceforthevoiceless
Enough is Enough!
Respect the existence or expect the resistance!
