Today is The Good Karma Kitchen’s 1 year anniversary! It’s hard to believe that I’ve been doing this blog for a year now. Sometimes it feels like much less, and other days I feel as though I’ve been doing it forever which I guess is generally how I feel about most things. The passage of time for me is so surreal that sometimes I feel as though it doesn’t register for me in quite the same way that it does for others. Other people always seem to have a much firmer grip on time then I do, for me it just sort of flows, and I just flow along with it. Perhaps this is so because I try to live in every moment - despite how fast those moments move - or maybe it’s because I don’t typically get hung up on the details of ‘time’ like what hour it is, or what day of the week or month it is. These things rarely matter to me, most of the time I don’t like to have firm or set plans. I like to take life as it comes and just go with it. In the immortal worlds of John Lennon “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.”
This blog initially was much less a plan, and more of a whim than anything else. It arose out of my desire to help and support the people in my life who were/are struggling not only with vegetarianism/veganism but general health as well. I wanted to create a place for them to go and feel like they were not alone. That’s something I did not have when I made my transformation. Lucky for me I had the complete support of my husband, but sometimes I think it would have also been nice if I’d had a vegetarian friend or two to lean on as well.
After 200 posts I see this blog has grown from just a simple resource I could hand to my friends and family, into something people anywhere in the world can and do access, which is more then I could have ever hoped for. So I would like to thank you, all of you, all of my readers. Those of you who comment, and those of you who read silently. You have changed my life for the better, and you have been an inspiration to me. I can only hope that I have done the same for you. I hope that the information that I present here has been helpful/useful, and I definitely hope that you’ve enjoyed the recipes! Here’s to hoping this next year is as great as the last!
May good health and peace follow you always!
And stay tuned for tomorrow when I will kick off the start of year 2 with a delicious Malaysian recipe!
