Twenty years ago, when I was feeling burned out from working far too many patient hours, I sought out information about what was called the Seeds of Simplicity movement. They had a website, back when almost no one had a website.  They had pamphlets about curing your kids of the Gimmes for the holidays.  I used to put their literature in my lobby around this time of year. Now, when you type into a browser, nobody is home.  If you type .org you get Quakers.  So, I Googled Simplicity and Gimmes and found a book about it.  Here is the link to the page on Seeds of Simplicity. images-1 Please check it out.  Let Simplicity be your holiday theme.  Let charity mean more than another pair of earrings.  Though you can get earrings at Jizo & Chibi for 25% using the code JIZOWELCOMES.  Argh.  So strange to say it, but my life is about living simply and yet living with a business that requires me to Sell Spiritual Jewelry.  Go figure.  I just could not resist writing these in the same paragraph, it is a Real Time example of the pull to simplify and the pull to get stuff, even really great stuff. I wish you well on the path.
