The problem isn’t that we wake up in the morning wanting to contribute to cruelty or violence. The problem is that we don’t wake up in the morning wanting to create compassion, peace, and nonviolence.
If that were on our to-do list every day, imagine what we could accomplish. Imagine what our world would be like.
The good news is that imagining our vision for a compassionate, just world is the first step to realizing it.
Don’t underestimate the power of thought; it shapes our perceptions, it determines our actions, and it creates the world we envision.
Hello, and welcome. I’m Colleen, aka The Joyful Vegan, and I’m here to give you the tools and resources you need to eat, cook, travel, and live compassionately and healthfully.
For over twenty years, my work and podcast have remained free (and ad-free) and vibrant thanks to support from listeners, followers, and readers. I have no staff, no interns, and no assistant. What you see (and hear and watch) is a one-woman labor of love that is also my life and my livelihood. If this labor has impacted your life in the past year (or the past decades), please consider aiding its sustenance by becoming a patron or by making a one-time donation. Your support makes all the difference.
