I'm Not Perfect (Day 10 Update)

I am not perfect. I'm not 100% Vegan (although some day I hope to be). I'm not using all cruelty-free products, because I have to finish using up the products I currently have. However, in the future I intend to only purchase cruelty-free and vegan products. I don't feel like I can call myself vegan yet, all I can say is: I've adopted a vegan diet, and plan to turn it into a vegan lifestyle. I've probably made some mistakes and I'm sure I'll make more. I may eat something in the future that contains milk or butter and won't realize/know that until after I've eaten it.
“Being vegan is not about rules or doctrine. It’s not about restriction or self-denial.”
― Colleen Patrick-Goudreau
 Being vegan is not about being perfect. Instead, it's striving to do everything you can to help the earth, and all the animals you share it with.
“It's a pretty amazing to wake up every morning, knowing that every decision I make is to cause as little harm as possible. It's a pretty fantastic way to live.”
― Colleen Patrick-Goudreau
Today marks day 10 on The 30-Day Vegan Challenge. Double digits . . . wooh hoo! I've been loving it. I look forward to receiving that e-mail each morning with either a video or audio message for that day. I feel like I can be meat and dairy free for the rest of my life! I love eating vegan-friendly entres knowing that no animals suffered just so I could satisfy my appetite. Knowing that I'm not giving money to a horrible industry. Knowing that I'm treating the earth with more kindness. It's an awesome feeling. I'm happy and feel healthy. I plan to update every 10 days while on this 30-Day Vegan Challenge. Look out for more updates!
