The last day was pretty much like the others for me. I didn’t really have any big relapses and the only thing I really struggled with was my diet. Taking meat out of my diet will be a slower and longer process but I am looking to slowly reduce my intake.
This week most importantly was really eye opening to me. I think its fair to say no one from the class will continue to live the life they had this week. But I also think it is fair to say that a lot of people saw small things that they can change that if everyone did would really make a difference. Unplugging my appliances and reading instead of just watching T.V. are things that I will easily continue to do beyond the scope of this project. I think almost everyone out there has something that they could change at little convenience to them they are just not aware of it yet.
I have heard the argument several times that one person can’t change the world. But why expect the world to change if you can’t yourself. Using what you need set’s a good example and if everyone selflessly did it the world would truly change for the better. Big movements are supported by small efforts and I think that is something that everyone participating in this project can take away from it.
