My Sojourn: Finding the me within

I am a vegetarian, who has tried the lifestyle several times since I was young. I am not a full vegan, however, as I still eat cheese and use some form of milk. I aspire to go full vegan one day... Since I am anemic and have hyperthyroidism, I have to be careful with my iron and energy level. I must admit, however, that I have more energy with the vegetarian diet, and have had less allergy symptoms. Best of all--how vain, my family and friends say my hair is longer/healthier; I look younger; ...
I am a vegetarian, who has tried the lifestyle several times since I was young. I am not a full vegan, however, as I still eat cheese and use some form of milk. I aspire to go full vegan one day... Since I am anemic and have hyperthyroidism, I have to be careful with my iron and energy level. I must admit, however, that I have more energy with the vegetarian diet, and have had less allergy symptoms. Best of all--how vain, my family and friends say my hair is longer/healthier; I look younger; and am even more beautiful. What?...and no pills or scalpels? I have noticed that I am more patient, grounded, and focused. I am definitely a better me--inside and out.

Aside from that part of my life, I am a wife, mother and an animal lover. I teach for a living and have loved teaching since I was a little girl, playing school. I still see myself as that little girl playing school sometimes.

I love...

chocolate
coffee
tea
pasta
cheese
good bread
writing
reading
good wine
a good friend--I have one!

PRIORITIES:

1. God/Spirituality: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! My shepherd; my comforter

2. Self (usually I am lower on the list, but like the airline stewards say: Parents secure your own oxygen mask, first!)

3. Family--"gotta" love them. (Husband-married 21 yrs.; daughter-20 yrs.; son-17 yrs.; dog-5 yrs.

4. Work/Career--pays the bills! "Each one, teach one--or more."---currently working on the PhD!

5. Community/Society: give back to the world that has given so much to you. "To whom much is given, much is required."

In your birthday cake, I want to dedicate one slice to love, one slice to courage, one slice to determination, one slice to peace of mind and one slice to fortune. May all these slices come together to form a life for you which is sweeter than any cake in this world.
