I am loving MySpace.
My first trial a few months ago resulted in as speedy deletion as it was sign up - way too many dodgy pics for my liking! I had to run to the hills!
Second time around a very different story. And stories like the one below make my day and serve as a fantastic reminder/ inspiration to those who are new or considering raw foods, because, I tell you what... everyone is saying the same thing... surely we can't all be wrong?!
Over to Dea...
American, grew up in Europe and currently living there now, in southern Italy, western Sicily to be precise. Biggest news about me in 2007? I went 100% raw vegan in April this year. I needed a change, I was sick and tired of being sick and tired all the time.
Overweight, depressed, moody I prayed one night to my higher power to please give me a sign, to tell me something I could do to change my life. The next day as I was checking emails, down as ever... I started randomly searching the internet and put words in the search engine of my portal such as depression, health, nutrition and lo and behold I discovered the raw food diet movement.
I was vegan already, I devoured all the information I could get I read and read and read and at the end of March I went raw cold turkey 100%. The detox symptoms were hellish but after 2 weeks all sorts of things started happening. Insomnia gone! Depression gone! Achy tired feeling all the time gone! I was happier, I smiled, I giggled, I felt rested, people told me I glowed...Things in my life started to change...the weight started melting off, my aches disappeared, grumpiness and frequent bad moods gone..!
Now a few months later my body looks better, I feel better and my heart is lighter and overflowing with love for life in all its manifestations. I am so grateful…feeling so blessed and joyful on my path – life is great and I am full of gratitude :) Somehow I know things will work out for me, and those around me. I am hopeful, not fearful anymore and happy! I feel happy happy happy all the time! Its amazing. :))) I am into living naturally in today's world. I am a vessel and flame of pure love. As I begin to feel better and awaken, I am full of joy and want to share my joy with others. Eating a raw vegan diet has made me more generous and I want to share with others these feelings. Yay! I am living the best life ever. Eating a raw vegan diet is the first step for me towards this path and way of life. I love raw chocolate, superfoods and being blissed out on life and nature. Join me and together we can be vibrantly alive!!
I say Dea sounds like a good MySpace friend to have... What say you?!
