I’m getting a tattoo tomorrow. It will embody a philosophy I have embraced over time - “you are what you eat.”
The things you consume make you the person you are today. Mentally, physically, and most importantly - spiritually.
In today’s society especially, too many of us are controlled by a consumer’s mentality. And the proliferation of the personal computer (smart phone) has made it easier than ever to consume. Without self-control we bounce from one thing to another, aimlessly looking for something to fill a void. Twitter, Tumblr, Flappy Bird, Facebook, Instagram, Vine, Kik, back to Twitter. Netflix. Candy Crush. Back to Instagram.
"You are what you eat" is a reminder to me to consume the right things - to focus on filling yourself with that which enriches, enlightens and informs. And lastly it will be a reminder not to consume too much - to have balance.
You are what you eat.
