Titleless

A couple of weeks ago I was driving down the highway and looked over and saw someone I knew driving next to me. I immediately remembered that this person died about 10 years ago, so…

I am sure this happens to all of us I am sure. My other common occurrence is seeing someone I knew from school and then realizing that they would be in their 50’s and this person is in their 20’s!

What if there are only about 10 Million people molds in the world and everyone is born using one of those molds? Life, environment and personality would of course alter their look as time goes on but it would certainly explain all of the times you think you see someone you know and then realize it is someone completely different.

I have had this idea running through my head for a couple of weeks and then the other day I was at lunch and a man walked in who looked so much like my late father that I could not stop staring. I took a picture and sent it to my sister  who was startled too. He even moved like my dad. The only thing was the back of his neck, not quite right.

I received all of my course materials yesterday for my certification. Started reading Holistic Anatomy. No matter what word you put in front of it, Anatomy is anatomy and is not my favorite subject. Starting with cells and chemistry. So dry. I have already learned so many things, and had so many other concepts reinforced with the onine materials. Everything is of course focused on plant based foods, if there was ever a thought in my head to stop being a vegetarian a week of absorbing this information would definitely put a stop to it.

I met my personal goal for May. It was to switch to a much harder workout for at least ten workouts. I believe it worked as it seems to now be a habit. Good for my body! Pushing myself is not really my strong suit and I have to find ways to trick myself into it. I am so lucky to be able to do things. Any things. So many people are not in my position. I hope I never lose the gratitude I feel on a daily basis.

  1. I have seen “familiar” people SO MANY times that it is startling! One time a guy in a parking lot looked so much like my husband that I was just blown away! I have seen a guy that looked like my Dad, in his younger years, and once, when I worked in photo processing, I saw a girl that looked a lot like me, which was very bizarre. Have you seen the meme comparing famous people to old portraits and the like? I don’t remember much about it except for the Nicolas Cage one.

    Good luck to you on your studies. It seems like it would be difficult to get back into that mind-set!

    I need to make more efforts to be active, but except for a few activities like bicycling, everything I like to do best is sedentary. Even though I would love to retire and quit my job it is good that it forces me to be active (Fitbit gives me proof of that!). I just got a Wii U so I need to set up the Fitboard and controllers but I haven’t figured it out.

    I am so impressed at how much you work out!

    Living a life in gratitude is a much happier way to live, even if sometimes you have to dig deep to do it! 😉

    1. It is hard to get my brain to focus on studies! My attention just wanders to all the other things I could be doing, 🙂
      I miss my Wii. We got rid of it when we moved, just didn’t use it enough to justify the space and we were definitely decluttering, We only owned a few games because all we ever played was the bowling. We are so boring.

  2. I’ve done that before a few times. It was my grandpa a few times, but one time I actually let out a little yelp because someone who looked like my ex was very purposefully heading towards my door. (Turns out it was Michelle’s aunt!)

  3. Did you forget there are boring rote parts of the whole learning process? I did. lol It’ll probably get easier. Good luck! We get so used to just focusing on the things we want to. Sure will keep your brain active.
    It is weird to see familiar faces. I have seen my dead grandmother a lot. And had some strainge thought float through my head. (since I was 10 when she died) Like what if she didn’t really and everyone lied and there she is! I have thought of the mold thing too. Like how many ways is it possible to change faces…I see ppl all the time that look like living ppl I know.
    When I was in my 30’s, every time I went a town over, I was mistaken for someone else. I clearly had a double over there. I remember sitting with my husband in a restaurant, someone waved. I waved back. Eventually everyone was sneaking looks and some were just plain staring. I was trying to ignore it because I knew, here we go again. But I got laughing because I started to think, “she’s” here with my husband and these ppl are wondering who the heck he is. Is she married? Now they’re thinking she’s having an affair! This could cause her so much trouble, I started to feel really guilty. lol
    About exercise….the other day I did some outside work and was feeling sorry for myself for being so weak cuz I was aching all over. What’s wrong with me! And I remembered you commenting to Deb on a post that if she wasn’t struggling, it was time to try something different. (something to that effect) The thought made me feel better, and I continued on. You never know the effect you might have on someone. So thank you for that. I’m still weak, a long winter of not enough movement. But I will plug on. 🙂

    1. ” what if she didn’t really and everyone lied and there she is! I “. Exactly! I swear I almost went to talk to the guy in the restaurant. Freaky!

  4. That whole familiar thing! YES!!! It happens to me too! You are amazing! I truly believe this nutrition thing is the key to health! Share, share, share!
