Here is an example. I used to be really against a bandwagoning. I refused to read Harry Potter although this was the literary classic of my generation. I resisted for 10 long years. I knew at 12 that I was an avid reader because I love to read. I would not stoop down to read the book being gobbled up by the masses that don't generally care about books.
Fast forward to college and I HAVE to read Harry Potter for my Adolescent Lit class. Amazing. I'm in love. I wish I were a wizard. I wish life had more magic. I wish I had frizzy hair like Hermione. (oh wait, I do. Thank God!) I go to movies. I cried when the series ended. I yearn for butterbeer.

And you know what I learned? I should have jumped on the bandwagon sooner. If I thought it was so magical at 22 I would have LOVED it at 12.
Valuable lesson learned, kids. Lesson learned.
Well, now it's time to hop into a new craze. My hubby and I are going to be juicers for 5 days. Were going to buy all sorts of leafy greens and juice them and pretend they taste good. I'm going to watch the pounds shed off and I will have more energy than I ever had in my life. My skin will glow. Inspired after watching the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead we decided this would be an adventure worth taking. Here's a preview.
Plus, not a bad idea to take down our juicer, which was a wedding gift, and brush some dust off of it. I will post about our 5 day juicing journey along the way.
