This holiday season I am holding in my heart all the people who are out there desperately trying to find the right presents for their friends and loved ones. It is a hard task we set for ourselves-- this gift buying thing. Deep breaths.
In the meantime I am working on holding onto a feeling of hope.
I hope for a world that is peaceful. I hope for a world where everyone has enough. I hope for a world where we all feel safe. I hope for a world that places more importance on our material goods-- that allows us to buy less-- but to buy better. I hope for a world that does not include slave and sweatshop labor. I hope for a world that does not value money over humanity.
That is my mantra.
