Continuing Education

One of the first things that was stressed at my law school orientation was that one’s legal education would never be over. That is true for every profession, every field of study, every facet of life. For as much as we think we know there are volumes waiting to be written.

I admit, my initial gumption for a Whole Foods Plant Based lifestyle has waned as of late. Over the past few weeks I have not been as adamant as I once was about not consuming any animal products and staying away from processed foods. Part of that is a result of the fact that I live with others and I do not always prepare my own meals and my busy hectic schedule. In other words, excuses.

The most noticeable thing to change was my once ever abundant energy. Do not mistake that to mean that I have lost any of my enthusiasm or desire to live life to its fullest. I just find that I’ve slowed down, and I’m not actually doing it. I’m not accomplishing even the tiniest things in my day, whether it was running an errand, writing a blog, or simply making it known somewhere to someone through some small action that I am here, that I exist. This is, or rather was, a small phase that I was going through and with the writing of this piece I declare that obstacle overcome.

I would like to take a moment to thank those of you who reach out via the blog or via twitter and those who welcome FoodPhenomenon into their networks and have put up with the never ending curiosity.  I look forward to connecting with more likeminded persons.

This thing called life is only as hard as we make it. I’m convinced now more than ever given the events of the past few weeks/months that we are the masters of our own realities, the good and the bad. I wish you all love and peace on your journeys, wherever they may lead you and I hope that in striving to be our best individually we become our best collectively.
