It’s not being materialistic to want “things” for Christmas.
It’s not being materialistic to covet thy neighbor’s new I-phone, new shoes, new house, new car.
♥No that’s not being materialistic, that’s greed.
It’s not the “wanting” and the “having it” that make us materialistic, because the truth is, we are NOT in true sense materialistic at all.
The “true blood” materialistic people are the people who put value to everything they have, they love their old outfits just as good as the new trend, they love their “things”, they treasure them and wouldn’t trade them for anything new unless they break or become useless (new phone?).
If only materialistic was defined and perceived differently, no kids would have wanted a new toy each year, no moms would have wanted a new kitchen gadget, outfit, shoes, jewelry and something else each year.
“A model” each Christmas has been to want to have something new (that’s why we wrap new presents each year), and I don’t see anything wrong with that, but it wouldn’t be a bad idea to believe and create a new model and make it “The model” each Christmas.
And that is to put value back to all that things we have, let’s make them last, let’s slow material consumption down, let’s love all that we own and make the most of what it can do.
Let’s hold on to our material things for as long they last or until they no longer serve their purpose.
P.S. what’s your “the model” Christmas this year? well in my case,,,, a recycled outfit.
Merry Christmas world, from our family to yours.

None of us got the memo: WACKY! hahaha to the 10th power, well we have a next year to look forward to,, and we’ll have a wacky pose for sure.
And that’s a wrap!
