Hi all. I'm Terry. I listened to 29 Gifts on audiobook. I'm nervous about joining, worried that joining might be for self-serving reasons. On the other hand, I'm looking for something that will take me to "MORE" - more faith, more gratitude, more service, more LIFE ... meaning that ultimately my focus will be on doing for others in a mindful and honest way. I'm excited (and also nervous) about what the Universe will expect of me to prove my integrity...

Hi All,
I randomly came up the book and finished it today. The universe definitely put in my hands at the right time! 2019 was full of change~good and far less than desirable. I have been wrapped up in my own head and have spent too much time focusing on what I don't have vs. the abundance that surrounds me. I also have autoimmune issues that, despite my diligence in getting it into remission, have reared their ugly head lately. I've been feeling defeated in this area and think it is a great time to stop focusing on my ailments, aches, and pains and put my energy into something positive. The world can always use more goodness, more light, more hope, and more smiles; I am excited to be part of the light and spread smiles to those around me.

Day 1 - I gave my husband the gift of picking up my stuff off the bedroom floor. We got back from a trip 2 weeks ago and I still hadn't put everything away. He loves things clean and tidy but he never harasses me to be as tidy as he is. I am so grateful for his steady love and acceptance. This turns out to be a gift to me too, because the room sure looks better and it makes me happy every time I walk in there.

I just stumbled on the book 29 Gifts at my library and loved every word. I have been thinking about doing a gratitude project but couldn't quite put my finger on how to do it. This is the perfect way. I'm very excited about being present with gratitude every day and finding some way to give to those around me.

My gift for today - day 1 - was to call a friend who needs help moving light outdoor furniture used by her employer from their house to the storage location in the horse barn. I checked the weather (snow today, but a bit warmer the next two days) and gave her a call, and told her I would wait to hear from her about what time this weekend would work). The gift is less in the doing and more in the being peaceful about the ambiguity of the timing.

Hello I'm Karen Gerber and I just finished reading 29 Gifts and that book really moved me. I live with chronic health issues and related very closely with Cami both in terms of the health challenges and the desire to try to find a new way of living focusing on giving, positivity, spirituality, connecting with like-minded people etc.

It's been FOREVER, but--hi, everyone! I was also a part of the original site; I joined while I was in college and made a lot of lovely friends, so I'm hoping to see some familiar faces, even though it's been so long. I do miss the old site--especially all of our blog posts!--but I'm very happy to discover that it's been revived here, at least in spirit! :)
