An Unexpected Bonus
In life it seems we each carry our own story. These stories define us, make us who we are. And we hold onto these stories to excuse our lack, no matter what: my husband left me for another woman – I must be fat, my mother abandonned me at birth – I must be sad, I have red hair so life will be challenging – I’m sure you can find your own story and fill in the gaps. And for some it can be a very lonely place..
We went primal over a year ago. At first it was about weight loss, food, exercise but somewhere down the line I became aware that this had become a lifestyle and there was no going back. And with that came the realisation that my story had gone, I had stopped living my life from that place. Every choice every decision made now comes from a much simpler place: will it make me feel better and not just better but fantastic. And that is for me, the wholly unexpected bonus of living this paleo life.
