Regardless of what is going on in my chaotic life, the sunshine can always balance me out. It can lighten my mood, make my day brighter and make me more appreciative of the simple things life has to offer. If I really take the time to enjoy it's warmth, I'll literally feel the energy being absorbed through me. It's powerful, it's natural and it's beautiful.... Peace, Love & Sunshine!

This article on vitamin B12 is too useful to not share. Most vegetarians/vegans use Nutritional Yeast as a supplement but it also comes in tablet form. Just be sure to read the label to be sure it's suitable for a vegetarian diet!

Lady Gaga's appearance on Ellen wearing her raw meat dress can be compared to Sinead O'Connor's appearance on SNL when she ripped up the photo of the Pope but it's really not that big of a deal to the majority of people, considering the majority of people in this world are not vegetarian. Ellen is VEGAN and Lady Gaga wore her offensive meat dress on her show.... People were outraged and horrified when Sinead did what she did saying it was insulting, offensive and unmoral but no one really thinks too much about it when a star such as Lady Gaga stands on Ellen's stage wearing abused, tortured, slaughtered beings. Sinead's stunt got so much attention because it hit a nerve amongst religious groups across the world, but Lady Gaga gets away with being un-ethical because most people don't think there is anything wrong with eating (or wearing, obviously) animals. Shame on her.

Although I'm not a strong leader, I'd like to think I've never been much of a follower. My girlfriends to this day expect me to make the plans and organize our events for our group. It's just always been that way. I am the decision maker for most things in my life. I'm a mom and a wife and I tend to play a leading role in the planning of our day to day lives. With so many decisions to have to make, I've learned to be quick about it and I've stopped over thinking a lot of things. Sometimes in retrospect I see that I could have made a better choice had I given it more thought but in that particular moment if I felt (and I base most of my decisions of emotion... I know this about myself) it was the right thing to do, then I'm ok with that and will stand behind why I did what I did. It's just the way it is. And people get pissed off with some of the things I say and do. They judge when I do things like take my children to animal rights demonstrations or raise them differently than they are used to but as long as I can be honest with myself and feel good about what I say and do, then I don't give a damn about my bad reputation. ; )

Every year, my hometown hosts an event called Ribfest and every year I say I'm going to get a group together to demonstrate on the animals behalf but.... the smell of their death and roasting flesh makes me physically ill. I wouldn't be able to stand being there! I hear there are over 150,000 people who attend and over 100,000 pigs are slaughtered for this annually. Pigs Are Intelligent Animals and it saddens me to know they have suffered for greedy human consumption.... Something has to be done... and sometimes just stating the obvious is enough to open some people's eyes and create the awareness surrounding animal cruelty....
- Life-long Vegetarian and proud to be Canadian. Really, I'm a little bit of everything, all rolled into one. I'm a bitch, I'm a lover, I'm a child, I'm a mother, I'm a sinner, I'm a saint (I do not feel ashamed) I'm your hell, I'm your dream (I'm nothing in between) You know, I wouldn't want it any other way..... (I'd like to think that song was written about me! lol)
