Being Consumed

Photo from a road trip across America in 2010

I've been thinking a lot lately about how where I live shapes who I am. When I was abroad I didn't shop nearly as much, and didn't consume nearly as much. But I was so much happier. Instead, I invested in people, relationships, and weekend trips that created memories. Being back in America, all I can think about is earning more money and having the next best thing. I'm honestly afraid to live a country that thrives on this mentality! I don't think I'm strong enough to fight against it.
