Sounds like a familiar path a lot of us have taken. Transitioning to veganism takes A LOT of research and time. Ask questions, experiment with recipes, jump on peta.org (healthcare/beauty products), read as much as you can on veganism and figure out what you can do to decrease the exploitation of animals. I'm a vegan but, unfortunately, have to wear steel toe boots on a construction site - try finding boots for construction purposes that don't consist of leather. My point is, we can only do so much.
Do your best and learn and don't feel traumatized when you make a mistake or have to use something that isn't entirely vegan friendly. Every little bit helps.
I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.
