The headaches from the concussion I sustained almost two weeks ago are completely gone. Not running these last couple of weeks have been horrible. Running is my stress reliever. Running is my exercise. Running is......well, it's such a huge part of my life now. I miss it so much when I'm not able to do it. I can't wait to get my running shoes on tonight after work! I even downloaded an audiobook so that I'll have something to listen to while I run this week.
Over the weekend, an acquaintance of mine messaged me on Facebook and told me that she had just got done watching Forks Over Knives and she had decided to become vegan. Could I help her? I sent her all kinds of info: mistakes that I made when I first became vegan, things that I've learned, online resources for recipes, etc. Then I got to thinking how nice it would be to have my own website that I could refer people to. The website would contain my journey of being a vegan. I could blog about my life as a vegan, things I'm eating, the struggles, the wonderful benefits I've reaped, etc. No, I wouldn't be the first person to do this. There are tons of websites like this. However, this would be a place where people that I know could go because they know me. Because you know what? There are going to be more and more people who approach me in the future that they've decided to become vegan and could I help them? And I can just direct them to my website. I want to be ready.
The fact that I'm currently taking website design classes for my job is not a coincidence. This is a golden opportunity for me to use this tool to get more information out there about the vegan lifestyle and how wonderful it can be. This is my opportunity to do something to change the world.
