Gifted?

Sustainable Me II
Today, 50. In lieu of gifts, please consider a spending time with a friend, we cant do it enough. In lieu of gifts, take a few minutes to deepen your knowledge about a meaningful subject, the world will benefit from greater understanding. In lieu of gifts, ride the bus or train to its terminus, exploring an area that you might not have otherwise encountered. In lieu of gifts, post a compelling poem to social media so that those channels might be more edifying. In lieu of gifts, send a postcard to a friend or family member to invoke the pleasure of conveying and receiving tangible media. In lieu of gifts, take a young person to lunch or coffee and really listen and understand their perspective and concerns, however, haphazard, serious, or inconsequential they may seem; too often we only see the world through an adult’s limited perspective. In lieu of gifts, see a play instead of a movie next weekend, live theater can possess a purpose and visceral immediacy that transcends film. In lieu of gifts, research in what type of companies your retirement funds are invested and see if they align with your values and view of where the future lays. In lieu of gifts, strive to more deeply understand the impact of your actions on the lives of your grandchildren. In lieu of gifts, cultivate generosity, compassion, connection, perspective and love, and share and teach it with to others with the same dedication and vigor to which it was taught to me by my parents, family, friends and, on occasion, random enlightened strangers.
