He says the reason he was inspired to write the lengthy Instagram post was because he’d just come out of an intense 12-day cleanse, and that he was feeling a lot of gratitude for everything in his life as a result:
“I just came out of a 12-day cleanse where you’re eating a specific diet, and you’re going through these treatments every day, and you’re not really doing anything else.
You’ve got to kind of turn everything else off, so you’re not working out, you’re not straining or anything. It’s kind of a re-centering.
It not only heals you physically, but I think it takes away mental stress, and then the spiritual part I think is it allows you to kind of enjoy the meditations a little more, so when I come out, my first thought is intense gratitude for the people in my life.”
It’s was a little dramatic, for sure (especially the part about his now ex-fiancée Shailene Woodley), but with the lack of news in the NFL offseason now, it’s not surprising that it made headlines today.
Most people just wanna know what he’s planning to do next, especially since whatever he decides is coming on the heels of Tom Brady’s recent retirement.
Aaron did also note that he plans to make a final decision as soon as he feels certain about what he wants to do, though, and that it’s likely coming soon:
“I am looking forward to making the decision & moving forward.
I think it’s best for all parties involved to get this behind us… there’s conversations to be had, and a few more things to contemplate, but it won’t be long and I’m not gonna hold anybody hostage in this.
I’m not gonna, you know, do that. Obviously I want to feel certain about it, and when I do, I’ll make a decision, and we’ll just move on and move forward.”
