Creative, Less Toxic, and Eco-Friendly Christmas Decor Ideas

The ideas and photos I am sharing are not designed specifically for people with MCS/ES, but they can be easily adapted to meet our needs.

The majority of people who celebrate Christmas do it with decorations, parties, and gifts, perhaps  with a visit to church, if possible. For people with MCS/ES, all of these traditions, as currently practiced, can be seriously problematic, if not downright impossible.

Can a New Normal Be a Good Thing?

Over the years, when discussing life with MCS/ES, it is often mentioned that this is a life with a new normal. It’s a new normal that none of us asked for, and too often, it is not a very nice new normal at all.

Recently, I’ve been able to explore some of Charles Eisenstein’s work and ran across this quote:

ANewNormal

I’m pretty sure he wasn’t thinking about MCS/ES when he said that, as we aren’t the only ones on this planet who are experiencing radical changes, but those of us with MCS/ES have been learning important lessons that we can share as a part of this new way of being that is slowly emerging.

Where Are We Going?

I have done a lot of thinking (when brain fog isn’t an issue) about my life, where I’ve come from, where I am, and where I am going… Over the years I’ve also tried to understand how things end up the way they are, how policy decisions are made, and how our own decisions and actions (or lack there-of) affect our future and how future generations will live.

We live in some very challenging times, and it can get quite over-whelming and depressing when we see that our so called “leaders” are taking actions that will make things worse for everyone.

I don’t like feeling hopeless. For lack of a better word right now, it feels yucky! And having a chronic, environmentally linked condition means I already have more than enough yuck in my life.

I think we have more power and capabilities than we understand or give ourselves credit for, but it’s not easy discovering how to access them.

Persevering Through Changes

Now is a time of great personal and planetary change.

We can be here as stewards of a truly precious resource, the planet earth, that which sustains us and nourishes us, that which provides air, water and food to us, as long as we don’t allow it to be pillaged and polluted beyond repair.

We can work on preserving and increasing whatever purity and sacredness is in ourselves and our planet, and indeed we must, for each other and for future generations.

Here is a simple story, told thru images I have found or made… Continue reading
