1 Card Pull: Four
There’s been a big shift this year in holiday consumerism from the people who matter - YOU! Choosing to shop small, shop local, or not shop at all has been a huge pattern this year! Although you shouldn’t feel bad for celebrating, or purchasing things! It’s just smart to look at where your things are sourced from! If you can at all help it, please try to support local! But if you just can’t get past those deals that some websites and stores offer, do what you do! We are all affected by the trials and tribulations of capitalism ALL THE TIME!
Just know you are not defined by your consumerism, Or lack there of. Nor your desire, willingness, or ability (or lack there of) to be able to be a consumer. This is a hard time of year for a lot of people, but it’s also the time of year for a lot of folks who know they WILL receive something; some warm clothes, warm food, and the presence of others around them. For some, this is the one time of year that provides that sanctuary and promise.
It is a time to give, yes, but it’s also a time to receive. This season is about balance and about bringing the light back into your life - in this, are you allowing yourself to receive the light? Or are you only giving? And are you giving in excess because of a lack of personal resources you feel you obtain, which is linked to your self-worth.
In the words of the once great prophet, now problematic poet, Kanye West:
“I’m living in the future
So the present is my past.
My presence is a present,
Kiss my ass.” 💋
