I’m admitting something really stupid here now.. I started a new vegetarian diet right.. well I’m not screaming it necessarily from the rooftops but I thought I’d try it as a little bit of a lifestyle change! Have followed it for approximately two weeks so far.
My dad owns a fine food store on the Wirral which has a butchers.. he’s a chef by trade but he also butchers the meat for the shop. So being vegetarian is kind of like the Welsh turning English.
So anyway, this is how my veggie diet is going. I was so tired and hungry one day that I made a chicken Bap on autopilot and only “remembered” that I was “going veggie” until after I ate it!! How dumb is that! Anyway I’m back on track again, eating greens and fish!
Veggie is something I want to try because of the fact that I love animals mainly. But being a carnivore since birth practically, it’s a completely new way of living.
God loves a trier...
Hey! Who makes the rules anyway. Yes I’m flawed! Yes I shouldn’t have been so dumb, but you have to give yourself grace right? Just start again! When we go wrong, laugh it off and relax! Just do your thing. Do you. Because do you know what my biggest fear is? It’s being judged and hated!! I just realized this today.. this fear literally holds me back! It holds me back because I wonder what people will think! What they will say about me!
What’s the worst thing someone could say right... “you’re a try-hard idiot who’s “trying” to be vegetarian..” see when I say it out loud, it’s said! And I’m actually laughing! Isn’t it stupid what scares us?? But also how mean we can be to ourselves!!. Hey I’m all for facing those fears and nasty voices so Let’s make way for some more grace!
The great thing about hateful haters is that now.. with social media as it is, it’s literally not tolerated anymore. So I think these shadows I carry with me need to go! Anyone that does hate on you is not worth your time or energy anyway right. I think it speaks more about them and their own inner hate anyway if that was the case. So yeah, that fear NEEDS TO GO!
Life is wayy too beautiful and also short to waste any precious energy on what “you think”,.. others may-be thinking!! I mean clearly, does it even matter anyway? No. No it really doesn’t.
Love ya! Wish me luck! 🍀 I’ll let you know how I get in with this new lifestyle change.. Yx
(trying my new diet with grace and curiosity! It’s all about new flavors & new habits!)
