Evaluating my own 24-hour-coverage addiction

Now Playing: Jake and the Neverland Pirates. It’s that time of day.

The events in Oklahoma are tragic. I hugged my kids tighter this morning. I’m sure they’re wondering if I’m just so strong that I don’t know how to hug them any more. Yeah, that’s it.

These kinds of things also bring to light my own tendency to indulge in too-much-coverage. This great post at Story Warren reminds me that it’s okay to look away. But, I often don’t. In fact, if anything, I look for more, more, more.

I want to find a good balance, but I’ll confess that I’m not sure I even know what that looks like. Figuring out the correct balance of knowing and caring versus not needing to know in order to care appropriately is tough. Work in progress, for sure.
