Happy Sunday everyone! Does anyone else feel like it’s been the weekend for the past week? Those holidays get me every year. Today’s collection of posts features some great pieces about what is to come in 2015, how we can all move past 2014 and make 2015 different. My 2014 was pretty great so I’m not necessarily making any changes in 2015 to better myself (although I do agree that small improvements make for an overall better existence). In 2015, I want to continue in my vegan activism and continue being happy with my life. I am always open to different life paths, but no longer consider any style of living better or worse than others. If I finish my degree this year, great! If not, so be it. I have learned to be happy with where I’m at, whatever that may be. If I totally change my job, awesome! If I am still at CTB next year, that’s wonderful too because I feel blessed to have that job. Could there be a boy in 2015? SWEET! If not, I have accepted myself as just that, myself. 2015 is going to be more about being content with where I am at and open to change as long as my happiness remains the same.
