Bead and Reel

We're heading into that giving time of year. 

When it comes to bringing more mindfulness into the holidays you might ask yourself: What can I comfortably give?

This might mean: what are you comfortable supporting when you shop? What can you comfortably afford? What is comfortable on your skin and on your heart?

If you're looking to buy something I suggest you browse the Approved Brands List to find companies that have been carefully selected based on their great values (and great styles!). And if you're looking to give something in the very affordable $0 price range, Impact Fashion Show Marketplace tickets are available (and limited!) for a full day of inspirational experiences in Los Angeles. 

With love,

"So often activism is based on what we are against, what we don’t like, what we don’t want. And yet we manifest what we focus on. And so we are manifesting yet ever more of what we don’t want, what we don’t like, what we want to change.

So for me, activism is about a spiritual practice as a way of life. And I realized I didn’t climb the tree because I was angry at the corporations and the government; I climbed the tree because when I fell in love with the redwoods, I fell in love with the world. So it is my feeling of connection that drives me, instead of my anger and feelings of being disconnected."

~ Julia Butterfly Hill

"Optimism is a strategy for making a better future. Because unless you believe that the future can be better, you are unlikely to step up and take responsibility for making it so. If you assume there is no hope, you guarantee there will be no hope."

~ Noam Chomsky
