In the pause: Feed the good

I was recently talking to my friend Christopher. He’s fascinated by food science, and was telling me about the biome that exists in our bodies. We have bacteria floating around us, and the different foods we eat feed these different bacteria. Healthy food feeds the good bacteria, and the unhealthy food feeds the bacteria that isn’t good for us. Our job in nutrition is to feed the good.

What’s true for our bodies is also true for our mind, heart, and spirit. The thoughts and emotions that we have feed our view of the world, and our perspective on our place in this world. There are many troubling circumstances at play in the world today. As I prep my end of year charitable contributions, I’m reminded how fortunate I am and how many people need help, hope, and support. Providing that comfort through my contributions of volunteer hours and funds is my way of feeding the good in the world. And it also helps me to feed the good within me.

Happy Sunday.
