This year has been different for me, since the moment I decided to challenge the lethargy that seems to have become deep rooted within me over the last couple of years. From the day I changed my way of eating to Paleo, the year has simply continued to improve.
It feels like my eyes are wide open and the world has a different kind of glimmer to it.
At the ripe old age of 36, I feel more like me, and more comfortable being me, than ever before. I have direction, a goal, and I am starting to dream again.
And I passionately believe that this is down to diet.
Note, I am say diet, not dieting.
I ran this morning, it was just me and the dog, out in the woods, where bluebells were carpeting the soil, creating a heavenly sensation. The sun shone down through the thick of the trees and warmed my cheeks as I jogged through the mud of the day before.
And then I stopped, just for a moment, to reflect on what was around me.
It was beautiful, and needed to be savored for a moment.
I felt as the forest looked – calm and thriving. Inside I feel clean, like I am finally treating my body as it really needs to be.
I ran again, loving the feeling of my legs hitting the floor in rhythmic motion, feeling my arms fly wide sensing nature all around.
I am not normally spiritual.
But, we only get one life, we only get one body. For the last few years I feel I have abused my own skin by flooding it with crap, and in doing so, I have not enjoyed life to the fullest.
Now it feels like I can do anything, be anyone, all I have to do is believe that I can.
The change continues,
It is time to seize the day.
