Call Me Any Fool

I've started using smaller plates for my at home meals. In my mind I'm eating as much as I did when the plates were bigger even though, really, any fool can figure out that a smaller plate holds less food than a plate at least one forth larger in size.
It's really easy to get fooled. It's especially easy to fool ourselves.
We believe what we choose to believe.
Is it any wonder, then, that we were suckered for so long by the Texas shrub?
At first we fell for it and then we couldn't believe what we thought was happening was actually happening.
I'm now choosing to believe that things will get better even though our plates may be a little smaller.

It all depends on your vantage point. To some it may look smaller but to others it may look bigger. What plate did you start with?
