I am who I am and I make no excuses...
I am on this Earth for the same reason as you;
to be Happy, to Learn, to Grow, to Love, to Survive, to Be.
I have a deep love and respect for Mother Earth, one that I sometimes have to watch, but I know to always simply lead by example and "be the change I wish to see in the world." There isn't a thing I see or do without automatically contemplating its environmental impact. And I love this! It drives me to help and change our ways for the better, and so that we can have a healthy world for the generations to come.
Alert! She's a Vegan!
Yes, it's true, I'm a Vegan *gasp.* And I love it! *double gasp.* I think it's such a fun and rewarding lifestyle, one of the best decisions I ever made in my life.
Aside from being Vegan, I also have lots of food allergies (including gluten!) that forced me away from the typical North American diet, and I couldn't be more grateful.
Make no mistake; I LOVE food! And I eat food that I genuinely love to eat every single day. You don't have to sacrifice good taste for health, in fact, I've discovered it to be just the opposite.
My story, like most, is a long one, full of turbulence, lessons, growth, change, pain, and love. But at the end of the day I get to choose Who I Am and my Attitude towards life. And I choose to be Happy and Positive and Love my life.
I believe that if you want something in life you can get it! The only thing holding yourself back is YOU. You don't have to go to school to find a job you enjoy. You don't have to follow our embedded society's way of thinking and doing things.
Happiness comes from within and comes from simplicity. I believe you have to be happy before you can really enjoy anything in life--and then you can enjoy everything about life, the entire ups and downs of the journey. The simple things in life are the most amazing and treasured. People need to learn to work less and play more, and find more time to actually, well, live.
Above all, I believe in living In the Moment. Happiness is Now. It is all you have in this world; this moment Right Now. So embrace each and every second, because you will never experience the exact same thing ever again.
My life is full of excitement, and so is yours. Like a roller-coaster, it is full of ups and downs. I believe that Life will always have something to teach us and that's the point. The moment we think we've got it all figured out, there is no longer a point in being here. In every Experience, good or bad, there is a Beautiful Lesson to be learned. Appreciate and Embrace it.
I am who I am. I am who I Choose to Be. And I am forever changing and evolving.
And I Thank You for joining me on this spectacular journey.
My name is Bianca and This Life is Mine.
