I feel great!!!

Lately I have been feeling like I have come out of this kind of dark place. Not that it was bad it I think was more a product of my environment more then anything. The move has been awesome and I have been reading a lot of articles on healthy living and well I am moving in the right direction. Here is something interesting that I found on the net from Dr. Douglas Graham in his book "The 80/10/10 Diet". Now I'm not going on the diet or anything but I found it interesting that I feel like I have been surviving more then thriving... with the move and my mind set in place, I feel like I am thriving!!!
