As I prepare for my move to NYC, I continue giving away a lot of books. I have a hard time going into a bookstore without coming out with one (or several).
One of the unexpected benefits of the RID project is that it has absolutely changed the way I shop. Bookstores are just one example of how much the project has changed my attitude about shopping.
As I approach the end of this year, and as I struggle yet again with buying gifts for friends and family (My God, is it really already December 22nd?), I remind myself to enter the new year buying only with intention, shopping only with a mindful stance.
Happy holidays, one and all.
