Consuming Becomes Me

Consuming Becomes Me

I’ve always recited the adage that you are what you eat, usually without thinking about it much. But if I apply it to consumption of news, it really gives me pause. You “like” an organization or a cause once out of passing curiosity or sincere interest and soon you’re consuming way too much, whether it’s trash or a good thing, and often whether you ask for it or not. I am grateful for occasional reminders from friends or by example that it’s a choice — that I can cut down or decide to leave it alone.

Grateful for so much.
