For the past few days, I have been increasingly dedicated to sharing my passions and sources of happiness on Instagram. One of the ways I give love to the world is through nurturing a cruelty free lifestyle, diet and beauty standards.
I love animals and many things in my life reflect that very love. I haven’t eaten meat in twelve years. I donate to animal charities and am dedicated to using only cruelty free cosmetics and spending money on cruelty free fashion. It makes me feel good and the thought of freedom and safety for all animals fills me with love.
Just like anything else in life, giving love ensures both love and many happy benefits in return. My nutritional practices and organic, vegan beauty products I choose keep me fit, healthy and looking young. I have received various gifts from my favorite organic cosmetics brands. The thought of eating fish, which many consider a loophole of vegetarianism or use for health reasons, doesn’t make me happy. Soy milk, which I don’t want to live without, benefits me more than I can describe. My comfort food of choice is rice and breaded vegetable sticks. I’m crazy for quinoa, fruits, raw vegetables and I like tofu very much, not to mention that I feel full but light after each meal.
Except for the direct benefits, love for all animals that fills me with love reflects on other things in my life. Caring for animals reminds me that love is the most important thing in life. Love must be self-directed, expressed to others and when acting as our beacon in life, it guides us through the great moments and saves us through the difficult ones.
Caring for animals makes me feel love on a daily basis, without any effort. To me, there is nothing easier than loving animals as they give unconditional love to those who care about them. This is an amazing LoA lesson, among other things.
