It’s never too late to eat leafy green veggies.
It’s never too late to eat healthy fat.
It’s never too late to try wild caught fish instead of farmed.
It’s never too late to buy from the closest farmers’ market.
It’s never too late to eat well.
It’s never too late to rethink what you’ve been doing your whole life, and how you could do things differently for your own good.
It’s never too late to ask questions and find answers.
Until the moment you tell yourself it doesn’t make a difference.
Until you say you’re too old, too fat, too tired.
Until you think you aren’t that kind of person.
Until you blame it on someone else.
What difference does it make? No one’s keeping tabs. You have every right to seek what’s good for you. Your happiness is yours to find. Your health is yours to build and protect. Your life is yours and no one else’s ultimate treasure.
Who cares what you’ve been eating up until today. Who cares whether you’ve been misinformed, or manipulated into eating things that make you feel bad. If you have the will, you will find your way.
Your diet is your responsibility. It is your well being. The food you eat is what becomes you. It makes the body that you have. So you have every right to eat well.
If you want to eat good food that makes you feel good in every way, but you won’t because you are confused, ashamed, embarrassed, shy, or scared, I’m here to tell you that no one has the duty to approach you and lead you to it. I would do it if I could. But I can’t, and no one else can.
I had to go from one source to the next, to the next, and another, to find truth. I thought that if it was in print, or from the government, that the food I ate would be good for me. I learned that that’s just simply not true.
I found that my health depends on what I eat. That the way I feel depends on what I eat. That my strength, my livelihood, my body, and my mind, depend on what I eat.
And when I learned this, I became angry. I was frustrated that I had followed the words of people who did not know, who did not care, and who wanted only something for themselves when they told me what to eat.
Then I decided to not follow. I decided to abandon the “food pyramid”, to pull the “doctor” down from his pedestal, and to shred the texts on food and eating that spoke for someone else.
I realized that I am the only one in this world who can choose for myself.
I realized that my Self is the one thing in this world I have the power, the responsibility, and the willingness for which to live.
I can blame no one else for my pain and my suffering. I can ask no one else to bring me out of it.
There is no other point. I am the point.
If this is you, too, take the lead in your life. Leave the diet and the paradigm and the thinking that hasn’t given you a life of fullness and joy. Just go. Get what you want, find what you are seeking, eat what you will.
Discover the power of food. Respect it. Own it.
