I wrote this about knowing what you want before you really understand it. I was 6 years old the first time I became a vegetarian. On the same day, someone gave me kale for the first time and I came to the realization that food was alive once. Big ol’ brains in tiny bodies.
I wake up every morning and remind myself that there are 7 billion people in the world. 7 billion. I think that’s the only way I get through the day sometimes. When I don’t know what to do I just send my thoughts to any single one of them. It’s always alright.
