Find your Courage

Let go

This week's illustration is all about trying to let go of things upon which you have no control, and if you are able to surrender and let go, you begin to free yourself.

My Sister's Cat

So my sister has one of the prettiest cats I've ever met, but with all that beauty comes a price to pay because she is also of the scariest cats I've ever met, too. Whenever I stay over she tries to claim her territory like she's a lioness in the african plains and i'm a baby gazelle trying to walk by her through the hallway. I meekly yell for my sister to come and rescue me so I can get into the bathroom because that 11 pounds of fury is no match for me.

Well anyway her beauty still mesmerizes me after all of our fights so i decided to doodle her for this week's illustration, and I added a photo of the little diva. Don't let those innocent eyes fool you here, they are the eyes of a 400 pound lion waiting to pounce on you and tear you from limb to limb.

Vegetarians Do It Better

I have been a vegetarian for over fourteen years now and am still surprised at the crazy comments people make to me when I tell them. 

Below is a list of my favorites comments and my passive-aggressive response I silently make in my head... 

1. But you eat chicken right?  - (No you idiot, chicken is meat)

2. But you do know that plants scream when they are pulled out of the ground?
(Seriously... where did you go to middle school science at? let me guess somewhere in Arkansas?) 

3. How do you get ANY protein? 
(Um tofu, beans, quinoa, nuts, - you can find it EVERYWHERE - especially if you know how to read) 

4. Yea but um, do you still eat animal crackers?
(I would but I hear them talking to me in small little voices, so it makes it difficult.)

5. What do you eat, like salads?*
 (What do you eat, like corn dogs?*)
*Please insert condescending voice

6. How do you participate in thanksgiving?
(well considering 90% of a thanksgiving meal is vegetarian side dishes, its really not too difficult, but what is difficult is people pointing out over and over again how they could NEVER give up turkey on thankgiving...)

and my ALL TIME FAVORITE was my mother-in-law's comment to my husband when he became vegetarian, which was:

7. "But I didn't raise you that way!?"
(like being a vegetarian is comparable to raising a son that is drug dealer, murderer or terrorist)

So in response to this here is this week's illustrations.... thanks for reading my little rant!
