Tis’ the season… Yes it’s the season for giving yet the unfortunate thing is most expect something in return. We’ve been conditioned by advertisers to buy, buy and buy so we can give. The problem is we’ve perpetuated a vicious circle of “gifting” that we’ve forgotten why we’re giving – Don’t say it’s Christmas!
We need to find better reasons and better gifts. We can’t just give because we’re expected to every December 25th! What about the remaining 364 days? I suggest keeping the true meaning of the season all year round by giving – No reason. Pay it forward to a stranger, how about a valuable gift like your time to an elderly nursing home patient.
There are as many gifts as there are people… Let’s be creative and give from the heart. It doesn’t even have to be gift wrapped!
