Whatever You Feed Becomes Stronger

Sounds like a simple concept, doesn’t it? Of course, whatever you feed will become stronger! So, what’s the point of stating the obvious? Well, the obvious is often overlooked and undervalued, so I thought it was important to remind ourselves to carefully consider what we feed. Think of all the things we feed and give […]
