Ordinary Vegan Podcast #8: Letting Go Of The Life We Planned To Have The Life That Is Waiting For Us

“Letting go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us”

~~Joseph Campbell

I love Joseph Campbell’s quote about life. Is it genuinely possible to have the life that is waiting for you if you have a job, family, and obligations? If you could imagine the perfect life, what would it look like? Do you do what you want or what is expected of you? How can you change your life?

Since becoming vegan, I have stepped outside my world and opened myself up to a new community of vegan people who are smart, compassionate, encouraging and enthusiastic. I have learned a lot about nutrition, pesticides, animal abuse, exploitation and having a reverence for life. I will never be a perfect vegan because simply living means I affect the lives of all creatures, but I will do my best. 

Today I share my stories of letting go and taking chances, and the rewards I experienced because of those actions.

I also share letters from our listeners who have decided to make the plant-based leap and their results.

One of our listeners asked for a book recommendation to learn more about compassion and the connectives of being vegan and the world. I highly endorse “Living The Farm Sanctuary Life” by the incredible Gene Baur. Here is a link to the interview I did with Gene.

Looking for a healthy, plant-based barbecue recipe. Today’s plant-based kitchen featured a delicious option – here is a link to today’s recipe – No Bones Baby Jackfruit Barbecue Sandwich.

Thanks for listening to today’s podcast and thanks for being part of our healthy community!
