Lincoln Up #35 [The Best I’ve Read This Week]

Lincoln Up

Good morning and welcome to Lincoln Up! I have been so busy since Wednesday that my posting has fallen away. I have been enjoying my Raw Till 4 diet and the copious amounts of bananas entering my belly on a daily basis. I also have started watching Raw Vegan YouTube channels and love feeling inspired and healthy. Hopefully I will do a post about some of my favorites really soon!

The articles I read this week had a focus: feminism and raw vegan lifestyles. I was thoroughly entertained by both. Sometimes I get discouraged reading fem lit because I feel as though I cannot do anything right. However, I have released myself from being a “good feminist” and decided to educate myself about the issues, then form my own opinions. I have released myself from fem activism, and have decided to be true to myself. I know what type of woman I believe I should be, feminist, Christian, vegan and all.

I hope you all do too. Have a great Sunday!
