*YOU DEFINE YOU*
-
Throughout our lives we will hear many voices and opinions but only one will be there with you the entire way: YOUR OWN. Too often we allow the opinions and voices of others to cloud and drown out our own. There is nobody that knows you like you. Therefore, nobody's definition of you should ever take precedence over your own.

SUGAR IS NOT VEGAN!
-
Whenever I find some cheap bulk sugar that doesn't use bone char, I load up!!
-
Here is an explanation from the @peta website:

Bone charโ€”often referred to as natural carbonโ€”is widely used by the sugar industry as a decolorizing filter, which allows the sugar cane to achieve a white color. Bone char is made from the bones of cattle who were slaughtered in foreign countries and sold to traders in other foreign countries, who then sell the bones back to the U.S. sugar industry.

I BROKE MY NECK 8 YEARS AGO TODAY
-
March 27th holds a special place in hell, just kidding, in my heart. Most would think that the anniversary of a life changing injury would be a difficult time of the year. For me however, it is a day of reflection and pride. Using my injury as a point of reference, I can remind myself how far I've come and how much I've grown.
-
This type of mindset can be applied to all memories and it's not just about looking at the bright side; there's a much more important opportunity here.
***The strongest parts of our character are developed in our weakest moments.***
Just like a muscle has to be shredded apart in order to grow, human character rebuilds stronger after being torn apart.

These images are the x-rays after I finished both an anterior and posterior spinal fusion. I broke my 6th cervical vertebra and the surgeons fused the 5th through 7th. Besides a reduced range of motion, slight stiffness/pain, and a couple of scars, the doctors hemmed me up quite nicely. And I heard chicks dig scars anyway. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜

*ALL PROFIT GOES TO YOUR CHARITY*
-
While going through some old belongings I came across this hoodie. I designed and sold hoodies and t-shirts like this when I was first injured in order to raise money for my own therapy. And now almost 8 years later I want to try selling them again. However this time, I want to donate all profits to charity. 100% of the profits will be donated.
-
I will randomly select three charities to benefit from the sale of these t-shirts and hoodies. The way I will select them is by randomizing the comments on this post. I will run the sale for a little over a week. The last day for purchases to be part of the donation will be April 1st.
-
In order for a charity to be eligible, the person commenting must buy one item, be following me, and leave a short description of the charity they are representing or suggesting in the comment section of this post. Any charity or foundation is eligible as long as these rules are followed. So share with whoever you would like. Would be cool to make this big.

Getting puffed with some friends from high school at the #popchips #NutterPuffs launch party.
*The regular peanut butter flavor is vegan*
#GetPuffed

Originally, becoming vegan was never about the animals nor the environment. I just thought of it selfishly, as a healthy choice. However, as I continue to separate myself from my previous lifestyle, all the things that vegans talk about are becoming so clear.
I've heard that compassion is a side effect of being vegan and it's so true. Every day I become more conscious of my decisions and what/who they are affecting.
My biggest hold up on making a full vegan lifestyle change was my wardrobe. My Gucci leather shoes and my Diesel leather jackets were like two bad consciences on my shoulder. But to be honest, I think I like the jacket and shoes I'm wearing here more. And no conscious creature had to suffer.

Things I Believe In

Positive Influence - If what you are doing is not positively affecting you or those around you, it's probably a waste of time and effort. Also, positivity doesn't always come with a smile - constructive criticism and tough love can be some of the best tools for positive influence.

Passion - You should care about things. Too often people move with the current, avoiding confrontation or challenge. I believe people should be bothered by things, form opinions, speak up and challenge others.

Opportunity for Growth - Every day, hour, minute is an opportunity to make a change, shift your perspective, decide to grow. Every person you meet is an opportunity to positively influence but more importantly, to be influenced by. Allowing yourself to absorb and learn from others is humbling and enlightening.
