What is normal?
So I'm trying this new diet, this #paleo thing. Now, I'm not supposed to call it a #diet. It's a #lifestyle #change. And it really is. I mean so much of the stuff we eat is crap. I was in the store buying meat and a package of #turkey #sausage had #potato in it. I mean, REALLY? I know I'm not going to catch everything and I'm not going to worry if little things slip through but I really will try to do this as hard as it is. I have noticed a few changes already. I am having less #digestive issues. I do feel a little bit more energetic. Hard not to feel better then I WAS feeling, which was rotten. But the main thing is my memory seems to be improving. I was sitting in Church today and I had a flash from a long ago birthday party. I was in eight grade. I remembered buying a brand new pair of blue jeans for the party, size 14. I was wearing about a size 38C. I also remember playing hide and seek in the dark. The girl whose #birthday we were #celebrating had just moved to a new house. She had previously lived in a twin house, very similar to mine. We were not close friends but in a same class in a parochial school everyone was friendly. Now she had a large house in a #private #community (not gated or anything but well to-do). I had bought my jeans at #K-Mart. I guess I had a solid upbringing because the one thing I don't remember was ever being jealous. We all accept the #statusquo if that's all we know. Once we open #Pandora's Box we have to keep it open and let out the #hope too.
