Are You Up For a Challenge? + a Big Announcement About my/HH's Future (My Depression/OCD)

Category: News |

A confession: I've been going through a lot of changes as a person these last few months.

Part of it stems from finishing my 5th and 6th books The Happy Herbivore Guide to Plant-Based Living and Happy Herbivore Holidays & Gatherings (out next month and this November).

When I signed my first book contract, I had no idea what would happen... would that be it? One book turned into a contract for two more, and then three more for a total of 6.

For years my fate was decided. I was going to be working on and writing books, and working on and writing books I did.

Finishing up my contractual obligations has been very bitter sweet for me. I'm very proud of the work I did, the work YOU did, the work and progress we made together in bringing health and plant eating to the masses.

I love all six of my books in ways words could never describe. I feel at peace, complete. I feel that I gave these books my everything -- my all -- and that I left no stone unturned.

I'm not saying I'm quitting or retiring (I'd miss you too much!), but having this sort of freedom.. having the chance to "choose my own adventure" again, has been a wonderful time for reflection and change.

Happy Herbivore has grown with me, and later apart from me, since we started together in 2006. I'm not THE happy herbivore anymore... I'm not a one-woman show. Happy Herbivore is a community, and legally, a corporation. I like to think happy herbivore has become something inside all of us. She's more than me... she's you.

I've had my joys and sorrows, but no regrets, and above all I have been thankful for every day, every step ...
