How does that saying go, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink”? That applies to most everything in life. You can share your knowledge about any subject with someone, but that’s all you can do. You feed them the knowledge and give them the tools…what they chose to do with that information is up to them. It is no different with “Paleo”. The stigma that surrounds so many things just comes from people who are close minded. Some people will even call you crazy (don’t let it get you down). You do things how you want to do them and if people jump on the “bandwagon”, then you can all hold hands. I’m lucky to have a handful of people who support me, and I support them. These people genuinely care about me, as I do them, and we work through as a team. It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey. We learn together, we discuss, and we figure it out. I want to see them do good; better than myself even. Remember, you can only help someone as much as they want to help themselves. You can walk away satisfied knowing that you shared your knowledge and your insights and observations.
After spending almost 4 months eating clean, living healthy, and taking care of myself…I feel like I’m a walking billboard for it. I have the visual to go with the words on the page. I love finding out about living better, and the little things you can do to change so much. I have devoted much of my time lately to research. I’m doing it to get healthy, but helping someone with diabetes is also a big part of it. Seeing that diet alone can “cure” a laundry list of things…major issues to minor issues…is mind blowing. So all I’m saying is, if you’re intrigued by someone, don’t approach it negatively. Approach the situation with an open mind. You never know what knowledge you can gain.
“Punk has always been about doing things your own way. What it represents for me is ultimate freedom and a sense of individuality.”
