You inspire me. Yup, youI’m so proud of you for taking the journey into veganism, for choosing compassion.  You have researched animal ingredients to avoid them in your purchases.  You read the labels on clothes before you purchase them, never selecting wool, angora, or leather.  You are patient with others when you explain for the ninety-seventh time that, yes, you can get protein on a vegan diet.  You try your best to be the best vegan person that you can be.

I want you to know that I’m so proud of you for getting here.  And hey, you might slip up sometimes- that’s alright.  It happens.  The important thing is that we continue to allow ourselves to grow and evolve in our veganism.  Be proud of yourself and your accomplishments.  Share your successes (and failures, they’ll happen) with other people.  Help other people to evolve.  Realize that you are not alone.

Revel in the sheer joy that veganism can bring into your life.

Be proud.

Veganism is an evolution.  From deciphering food labels, all the way to critically rethinking everything you’ve ever been taught about the rights of animals- veganism isn’t always black and white.  It is a journey, and I am so happy you are in it with me, and I can’t thank you enough for your compassion.

Let’s start a twitter campaign talking about our vegan pride. We have accomplished so much in the past few years, let’s get #veganproud a trending topic on one of the largest platforms out there.  Imagine a bunch of happy, proud people inspiring the masses, showing how wonderful our lives of compassion really are.  Life can bog us down with stress, bad news, and article after article of factory farm animal abuse- and that’s not even counting the people who go out of their way to put down veganism.  We can get sucked into the negative aspects of life if we allow ourselves.  Let’s combat the anti-vegan rhetoric, bad news, stress, etc. with happiness, compassion, pride, and solidarity.

So, what do you say? #VeganProud? I am.

Show your Vegan Pride on twitter by simply tweeting what makes you happy or proud about being vegan, then hashtag it with #VeganProud – let’s show others how wonderful veganism really is.  Vegan Proud!
