I just read an article in Success magazine in regards to a writer who believes all TV is a waste of time and energy and I couldn't agree with her more.
However, she had made a point that although her daughters were very into reality TV, she joined them to grow her relationships with them, talking about what was happening in the shows and how they could all learn more from watching them. She learned how watching these shows she was so opposed to, was actually in other ways, working for her and her relationship with her daughters.
I agree with her again on this topic that taking it too extreme on your issues is not beneficial. Although you're trying to gain traction on your beliefs and actions, you can be missing the point altogether.
I like to be gluten free. It makes me feel better and I feel it's my contribution to not buy anything with wheat which the food manufacturers try to over dose us with. However, when I'm with my nieces and nephews, my parents or my husband, I break bread with them. I'm not saying that I should go through convulsions because of any allergies but when we are trying to make a point, take a stand, a belief, whatever the cause; let's not forget what's most important.
I'm just glad I don't have Celiac.
