Holiday gift shopping is daunting.  If you’re in need of a little inspiration, here are some items on my wish list. If you’re like me, gifts don’t need to be extravagant.  A bag of coffee or a simple necklace are more than enough.  I hope your holidays are neglecting stress and that your are savoring simple moments with family, friends and laughter.  Making space for yourself to breathe, give thanks, mourn, laugh, run, or gather is the best gift you can give to yourself.  Right now, I am sitting alone in a coffee shop, something I haven’t done in a very long time.  And I feel filled.  Find a moment for yourself, because we can only give from what we already have.  And if you’re spent, the important giving we want to do this time of year will come from an empty well. Relax, smile, and smell the gingerbread.
