This time of year fills me with such anxiety. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I dislike the holiday season or giving. It is just the nonstop subliminal messaging from commercial ads, shopping centers, social media, etc. The message they send is buy, buy, buy. You must spend more, buy bigger, better, or you do not love enough.
The only thing i hear, is waste, waste, waste. I think of the mounds of wrapping paper, bows, and ribbon being bought then thrown out. Endless amounts of boxes and plastics that house our special little gifts, only to end up in the trash. I'm a nature lover and I want to protect nature as much as possible.
