Good morning! It has been a while since I have been able to jump on here and share my musings with you. I have been swamped with client and volunteer work, plus school and family, but nevertheless, I wanted to take a moment to wish you all a Happy Hanukkah and start to Advent – even if I am a little late.
Hanukkah is a time symbolic of hope and Advent prepares us for the birth of our savior by reminding us of the importance of patience – all things we need to be more mindful of.
In addition to all of this, I wanted to share my thoughts on the holiday-time as they related to consumerism. Stores are getting increasingly crowded and people are scrambling everywhere to buy gifts for their friends and families while they still can. It is chaotic out on the roads, and frankly, it is not something I am comfortable with. I do not like big crowds and I rather shop for gifts from the comfort of my home. Aside from that, I am one of those people who like getting my friends and family practical gifts. If you are going to fill someone’s house with more “stuff” why not make it something useful.
Today I want to take a moment to share a really cool gift idea with everyone. Rocketbook sent me one of the new Everlast notebooks to give an honest review about, and I am now hooked. In a world obsessed with technology and reducing consumption, this notebook fits the bill. Below is an intro video about the notebook I received, and I do hope you consider gifting it to all your friends and family. This is an amazing product and it is super affordable!
