How media affects lifestyle…

After a conversation with my teaching colleagues two Fridays ago, a line of thought stuck with me. In a conversation about movies we’ve seen, I commented that I chose not to watch many dark movies anymore, saying “They show you the door, but it’s your choice whether to go through or not.” The discussion also included some comments about innuendo in movies and whether it was desirable to watch/hear/think about.

Why be so concerned about images/thoughts? Put briefly,

1. Images inspire thoughts

2. Thoughts become thought patterns

3. Thought patterns become decisions

Thinking of throwing the ‘Think’ sign into the garbage.

4. Decisions become habits

5. Habits become lifestyles

Conclusion: What you allow into your life will inevitably affect what comes out – and where your life will go.
