Committed or Crazy?

Finish the statement --" You know you're committed when..."

After working all day I decided to make a run to the grocery store for a couple of items I needed to restock my pantry.  To three stores actually, in another town 30 minutes from home.  Why?  Why drive that far for a couple of items?  Because they are foods we have come to enjoy as vegans but cannot find in our local grocery and discount stores.  As if being vegan isn't crazy enough, right?

Three hours later I pulled into the driveway with a trunk full of groceries and the realization that I'm not crazy, but rather committed to a lifestyle that benefits animals, the environment, and my own health.

Being vegan in a predominantly meat-eating world is not always easy or convenient. In fact, sometimes it is time-consuming, labor-intensive, and frustrating.  But at the end of the day, or at least the end of a longer than usual trip to the grocery store, how nice it is to sit down and savor a meal that is delicious, nutritious, and good for everyone!

Yes, some will call me crazy. But I like to think of myself as committed to something worthwhile and beneficial.
