Goodness, I could not agree with this more! I thought that the 12 years I took off from focusing on nutrition to work along side some amazing animals was a detour on my own wellness journey. Now I realize that it was perfect. All part of the plan. The times when cheetahs licked my calves as I listened to them purrr, the times elephants spend gently exploring my new earrings or ponytail, when I dove for cover standing behind a hippo when I could tell he was getting ready to poop all of those moments taught me how to eat, be healthy, how to live, how to be human.
There is a beautiful story of a 9-month old lowland gorilla, Barika, and my time with her that I’ll share with you on the next podcast and what she taught me about being whole. They teach us SO much.
Thank you Linda Lange for posting this image. She is the crazy talented podcast host of Your Peaceful Life.
So blessed - Marla
