I've been wanting strawberries for the past week, but finances told me to hold off. It was pay week this week, so I treated myself to two pints of organic strawberries. I'd never tried organic before (mainly because of cost), and these were on sale. Such a huge taste difference between organic and conventional, I had no idea. It got me thinking about how food choices are just as much political as they are personal. How often do we consider the intersections of food choices and access? Food choices and finances? Finance and access? What about choices and lack thereof? All too often I've seen and heard preachy health advocates demean and come just short of insulting individuals they don't feel "are trying their hardest" to "improve their eating habits". Or worse, assume that said folks aren't "smart enough" to make "better" choices in eating. You never ever know what another person is going through, and you should never assume that you do. In saying that, respect the eating habits of others, and respect people as humans. Support folks for who and what they are, and if that's too hard, keep your mouth closed ❤️ #RespectFolks #RespectTheirChoices #Vegan #Vegetarian #lactovegetarian #pescatarian #carnivore #strawberryfields

Not everyone wants to fly high, some prefer staying grounded. #respecttheirchoices.
Feeling a little annoyed this evening. Or irritated. Disappointed maybe or stressed. Or I dunno... Scunnered! I feel like some people say one thing but mean another, or they think some things are ok but it's only ok depending on the sex of the person. It puts me off. Or it's ok if it's just me. Annoys me. Makes me want to go elsewhere. Changes the way I think or how I may react the other way round. Ive no idea if any of this even makes sense, but I have to get it out of my head. I've learnt that keeping it in makes it worse. So by writing I can lessen its impact. Of How disappointed I am. How upset I am. How I feel like I can't do what it is I wanted to do. I know I have to take into account other people's decisions and choices & I get that. It's not my place to force any issues they have. It's their choice. Their reasoning. But tonight I'm feeling selfish. Could be cause I'm on my third night, I haven't slept well & I'm overthinking. Bad I know...I'm overthinking things. Im thinking of my own happiness. Putting me first. Me and my mental health. Me and my happiness. Me & my little unwell plant. Now to search for another destination!

Some people are so concerned with what their children become they lose sight of who their children become. Michael and I talked yesterday about how we don't care what our boys do in their life, as long as what they do gives them fulfillment. We have been so blessed with two incredibly loving, affectionate and gentle boys (all things considered) There is no doubt in my mind that we are raising them with love first, and that everything else will fall into place. The past few days Campbell has worn his baby doll around and pretends to be a daddy. Needless to say, I think we are raising open minded and paternal children. #gentleparenting #respecttheirchoices #toddlersarepeopletoo #thefamilyway #babywearing #campbellwalker #familyfocused #canoneosm3 #toddlerlife
Don't judge people for the choices they make when you don't know the options they had to choose from. #Don'tJudge #WeAreAllNotPerfect #RespectAll #RespectTheirChoices #LoverEveryone #LoveThemWithTheirFaults #EveryDayIsALesson
