Refuse to Accelerate

As an adult I have control over a great deal.

I retain control of what I attend to, especially in this hyperactive news environment. The truth is, I just don’t do it very well. The current news cycle can highjack my morning routine, car rides, and unstructured Internet usage.

Chances are you have witnessed some name calling on social media around this last political election. And the idea that you would read a post by a “friend” and then lash out harshly should feel like you are skipping a step.
