Recap: My month as a vegan

By on 3-07-2016

As you probably discovered by now, in January I challenged myself to write a blog post about a quote that I really like. It took until the beginning of March to complete as I only got about 20 of the posts completed in January. Regardless, I stuck to it and completed all 31 posts. In February, I decided that I was going to be vegan. I went to the grocery store a few days...

31: the finale

By on 3-02-2016

Well, we made it. A little late, a little older, a little happier and only a few bumps and bruises. I know I didn’t finish this on time like I had hoped, but I got it done and didn’t give up when the month ended. I did the majority of the posts in January so that counts for something, right? I feel like this is a great quote to end the month with. Or rather,...

30/31: No Need to Explain

By on 2-29-2016

Can I get an Amen to this?!?   I can see there being a handful of arguments – like, “Well then enlighten me.” Nah, that’s not working anymore, because I’ve had enough stories twisted and turned and enough people have been hurt because of that. There are some people that you just can’t have certain conversations with. They are the people that will just never understand. Sometimes, this is genuinely no fault of their...

Day 29: Satan and his Future

By on 2-29-2016

Simply put, Satan is a big jerk. He doesn’t care about anyone and he is trying to bring down as many people as he can. Don’t be fooled by that. I’ll be the first to tell you that I did have a good time in the world but it was filled with heartache and uncertainty and disappointment and that my life is unmeasurably (Spell-check is telling me that is not a word but I don’t...

Day 28 of 31: Breathtaking

By on 2-22-2016

Wow, what an amazing quote, right? I think it rings true. I mean, how often do we hear, “she’s perfect” or “she’s beautiful” or anything along those lines? We hear them all the time. We hear them from real life people, we read it in magazines and we see it on TV and in movies. There is no originality. As someone who loves to write (although perhaps it doesn’t show in my lack of...

Day 27: Do not Love People Like Me

By on 2-10-2016

When I started this idea for 31 Days of Inspiration, I wasn’t sure how I was going to do it. I still look at some of the posts I’ve written and they seem short and boring compared to things you read on Buzzfeed or Elite Daily or the like. And then I remember that I’m not writing for anyone else; I’m writing for myself as a form of therapy. That’s probably why my blog got...
