VEGANism

Hey, so first of all, we should establish what is veganism. In a very broad sense, it's a choice not to use animal products at all (food, clothing, cosmetics etc), as much as possible. Meaning sometimes it's inevitable because for example medicine might be tested on animals.
For our family, this meant that we mostly ate vegan food. Especially me and Sarah. Peter sometimes ate non-vegan items. Me personally, also chose to try to use vegan and cruelty-free products.

REASON

So one of the main things people asked besides asking "Wait, but what are...

3 months pregnant & moving to Estonia in 100 days

3 months pregnant

So today I am 3 months pregnant. Well officially 13 weeks and (checking her pregnancy app..) 2 days pregnant. It's been.. hmm interesting would be a good word. 

Life has been fairly challenging. This is my first pregnancy and surely surely, I am super scared at times. And I am prone to worry. Like a lot. Because we all have heard horror stories of pregnancies. Or how something can go wrong. And all that. And whenever you feel something, or even when you don't, your mind decides to race 100km/h to all the wrong places. I believe God is trying to grow me in this time....

Secrets hidden inside...

This is a VERY scary, open, vulnerable thing i am sharing. Might need tissues. Might be terrible to read. Proceed at your own risk.....

For quite a while i have thought if i should write this. And i think i will. Well i am. You know. This is hard thing for me to speak of, but i want you to know. You, who looks into my life through my blog. Even when we don't really talk regularly or aren't even like friends, but you just know me and find my writings interesting. Or you who is my friend and who knows me but not that much, so you read and hope to know me more. I won't come to...

Lukewarmness and lack of passion

*Disclaimer, there's a lot of random mumble here, so if you want to get to the point, sorry, points take time... :D

Today has been one of those i don't want to do anything day. I took another sick day. Another meaning that i am so tired and not feeling well that i wouldn't have point in sitting through the classes. And if people would ask me am i sick, well in some ways yes. I mean, i have this cough, but that's not why i am sick. I have some deficiencies and that's what makes me sick.
Did you know that the vitamin thing, you can have SO many symptoms without knowing that it's a vitamin...

Attack!!!

For recent weeks, no, i think more like months, i have felt like i have been attacked. Not that someone had attacked me, no-no! But that me as a person have been under attack. Not by people, but by problems. See i've been sick. I can't tell you i have been VERY sick, because you might assume then that i have cancer or something. Which i don't. Not that i know of at least (sorry for my morbid humour here). Anyway, my health has been rather strange. And as a soul, spiritual being as we are as humans, it's rather annoying to be in a non-functional body. I feel the terrible need to fix it. To...

Something odd...

I have no idea what is going on with my body. No, i won't creep you out but just try putting down, what is going on with my health. It's been strange lately. And by lately i mean... well about couple of months at least.
At this point, i can't even remember what was the first thing that hit me. But right now, there's quite a few things at the same time. Not sure if they are related or not, but they sure have made my life well hard. Currently in bed with a headache. I can probably assume it's from the fact that i want to quit coffee. And maybe little jetlag. After all i arrived on saturday...

A christian having a depression

Here's the thing. Too many people don't get it. Don't get what it feels like to be me at times of cloudiness, rough days and all that. So let me explain. Maybe you know someone who has symptoms like i do. Or maybe you have. And maybe this helps you in either case.

Anyway, too often i've heard so much how people say the wrong things. I understand that sometimes you don't know what to say, but let me tell you what not to say to people with depression and anxiety.

Don't tell me to "just get better". Or "you just have to think happy thoughts". It makes me feel like i brought it on myself. Like...
