How was your Easter? Did you have a good weekend? We hope you are feeling relaxed and having peace in mind after whatever you might have been up to this weekend. If you had a weekend filled with social events it is even more important to take some me-time to really recharge and connect with yourself!
We had such a lovely weekend filled with old and new friends, good and healthy raw food and time to enjoy Amsterdam.. and of course a little bit of good red wine! 😉 It is an interesting time now when we are about to explore how it is to truly live a social and outgoing life but still stick with a healthy lifestyle. We find it so important to choose health before anything. It is not worth suffering your good vibes for the old (toxic) way of living. We simply have to create new habits and bring a big smile on our faces and try to do the best out of every opportunity. What we have noticed after this weekend is that it works perfectly to be a healthy raw vegan and still go out and enjoy yourself. Of course it depends on how “strict” you are and many times there are options if you ask for it and if you stay honest with your way of living. Donnot be ashamed of choosing health and good vibes – remember you are the one doing the right thing!!! The thing is to change your way of thinking. Say good bye to the old way of enjoying yourself when you are out and about. In the end it is always a question about habits… and what we all know, we can change them with a good mind set. And it is not a good bye and you miss out of things. The absolute best part we have noticed is that now we are so high on life in our way of living. We are creating our own well-being ourselves and now more or less everything turns out good as long as we bring our mind into it. You always have to remember that you are in charge of the situation and we have it all within us!
We will continue to share our thoughts about being raw vegan and still have a big social life. How it actually is – but we have to admit so far after 4 months it has been pretty easy. All our friends have been very supportive and we have been fortunate not to end up in any difficult situations. We are sure we will ran in to more complications later on but so far, it has truly been.. amazing!
We wish you a wonderful evening and a good start of the week. Before we leave you for now we want to share today´s powerful words we found in Steve Job´s Stanford Commencement Address:
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
With our hearts,
Julie & Katrin
