"Andrew Boyd describes himself as an author, philosopher, prankster, and a work-in-progress. I came across this quote by him and it really resonated. I bring it in to almost all of my speaking engagements because so many of us can relate. This work is so damn hard. It so often feels like no one's looking, or caring. Let's be honest: that's often the case. It's demoralizing. And yet, we...I...must persevere, because this mission we're on can effect billions of animals each day. I love the world. So I had to get familiar with, or accustomed to, sitting at the table with its worst horrors. I really like Boyd's way of saying we need to take care, and we need to keep going." - Jo

    Yes, this is true for me and I feel this way often. It’s important to make time for some form of self-care πŸ’š

    Very true. I feel responsible and it hurts very bad how we treat other living beings. That's why I became vegan. Don't get it why most people don't care, don't feel responsible at all. But throughout history it's always been like that. Only very few people care. But those are the ones that change the world...

    It does hurt deeply doesn’t it! Even walking past the meat section of the supermarket... I just think of all those poor, beautiful lives cut short 😒

    @coachwickscf you’re screwed.

    @samanthaerin03 I’m gonna start blowing up your feed with Crossfit now

    @coachwickscf that’s alright. If I end up liking CrossFit then πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ but if you end up going vegan then πŸŽ‰ πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰!!!!!!

    This is brilliant thank you.

    I completely agree! But it is comforting to see that I’m not alone feeling this way - there are lots of us who care and are willing to fight, so we just have to remember that when it gets overwhelming 😊

    That is an horrendous image. It hurts so much. Trying so hard to change minds, gently, and by supporting organizations like yours πŸ˜žπŸ’”β€οΈ

    I resonate with this too. Sometimes the responsibility gets overwhelming, I mean, we're just trying to save the world here XD Some days it's hard to stay motivated, but then I remember why I'm taking this path of compassion. Keep doing what you do! Together, we are doing the greatest mission in history; saving this planet! πŸ’œ

    It’s crazy to think that we who are their nightmare can also be their dream come true. ☹️ keep fighting. There is no other option. Love you Jo. Xxx

    I wish there were bigger platforms that would show your work. I sometimes just sit and think about the pain and fear the animals go through just for us. Its not right. Nothing about it is right.
