Ethics

Dear Me,

Can I just say you are totally rocking it today? First of all, GREAT job on drinking the water! Plus the green tea - decaf for breakfast, iced with no sweetener in the afternoon. AND you drank your wheatgrass! Your butt is full of antioxidants today! You remembered your vitamins too.

On top of all that, you have a promising plan in place for a cheap, easy, organic and sustainable diet between the new CSA (which I really hope works out for you guys!) and your new sprouting seeds project! It will almost like having a garden, which is going to be rad!

And of course, while it will be painful and you aren't part of the population who needs to see it (for most of these documentaries, you are the choir), you are going to watch The Cove tonight. It was an Academy Award winner, so it's something you need to make time for. Just because it will make you uncomfortable, doesn't mean you should avoid it. Burying your head in the sand doesn't make anything better, and I'm proud that you recognize this.

Last thing you did a great job of today (and last night!) is going through lists of products you are currently consuming and deciding if you can or should continue. You have already cut Norco and Nichols eggs off your list, and while H is not quite on board with the $5/Doz organic free range eggs, you can at least start somewhere. They are local egg producers, but that's not quite good enough. Someday, you will have your own chickens and not have to worry about how you get your eggs. You are also going to revisit all your cosmetics and household products and check to make sure they abstain from animal testing, which I know you are embarrassed you haven't thought about it in a long time, but better late than never, right? Every step counts. I am already thrilled that my beloved Clinique does not. Yay!

Hang in there, Monday is pretty much over! Until tomorrow, xoxo

<3, You

  1. I love that you are keeping this up! I'm so impressed! I hope you are feeling the warm hug of love from each of these. You are wonderful!

    Don't be too hard on those inorganic eggs though. Not all of us chickens get lucky enough to be all natural. ;)
