What Pink Flamingos Might Teach Us

by Sheila on May 29, 2012

Do you know why flamingos have their distinctive orange-pink color? It’s because of the carotene in the shrimp and other food they consume. If they change their diet, their feathers turn dull grey. That’s a dramatic example of the adage, “You are what you eat.”

Let’s use it as a prompt to contemplate all the stuff you take into the holy temple of your body. Not just the sandwiches and chocolate bars and alcohol, but also the images, sounds, ideas, emotions, and energy you get from other people.

Is the cumulative effect of all those things giving you the shape and color and texture you want to have?  If not, this would be a good time to adjust your intake.

I just liked this picture! He He!
