Am I a hypocrite? Opposite extremes on Slow and Happy blog. Conscious life, good changes for better life

During a few months I can pick opposite extremes and try them both on.

One day I eat chlorella*, make my own juice*, eat fruits, veggies and not even look at sweets. No coffee.

On other day I drink coke and eat barely anything besides cake. Or drink only coffee and eat almost nothing.

Am I a hypocrite? No, I’m a human being in this crazy world full of possibilities.

Do I pretend only to live healthy? No. For a big part of the year I live and eat healthy. And sometimes I eat worse things.

You can eat veggies and feel ok. You can eat sweetes and you’ll die. But, wait. You’ll die anyway.

I just stopped to strain myself. I gave up labels like I eat healthy, I am eco-friendly, I prefer nature to cities. Sometimes I eat healthy, sometimes not. Sometimes I avoid producing waste, sometimes I buy plastic. Sometimes I wear no make up and sometimes I want to show off.

That’s only life. Let it be fun. Let it be beautiful. Don’t create rules besides love, don’t steal, don’t kill, don’t hurt.
