Good Giving Weekly: GIFTS OF THE HEART
December 7, 2018

Greetings #29Gifts Community,

HO HO HOLIDAYS
Happy Flashback Friday. Today is the anniversary of the 1941 World War II Pearl Harbor invasion. Thanks to Veterans past and present who serve so bravely. Enjoy these three FLASHBACK links to get you in the giving groove.

Welcome if you are new to #29Gifts or repeating #29Giftsin29Days. During the holiday season it is easy to focus on giving and sometimes get carried away picking presents for everyone on your list. Here are a few giving ideas that cost little or no money. Challenge yourself this month to move beyond the material and give gifts of the heart.

TUNE IN
Give the gift of listening to a friend, family member or even a stranger. Put down your phone, make eye contact and really listen.

AFFECTION
Give hugs, compliments or smiles liberally.

POETIC WORDS
Write a poem and share it with our community and others people you love. Make a collage or add other imagery to go with your poem. Here is a poem of mine if you want some inspiration.

PATH OF PURPOSE
a poem by Cami Walker

Well being. Nurturing spirit. Trusting mind.
Holding heart. Feeding body.
Simple priorities.

The reason for being? For staying? For me?

Inspiring. Motivating.
The common pursuit of personal truth.
Whatever that means.

How? Following the mission means keeping it in sight.
In range but just out of reach.
Staying on the path of purpose. Feet planted. Rooted.
The hard part.

Living passion. Breathing certainty.
Reaching out when you feel like curling in.
Hiding. Ducking away.
Finding balance between the need to shelter yourself,
and your desire to serve the collective.

How? Somehow. However it's speaking to you.

Feeling yourself. Accepting your everyness.
The joyful. The enthusiastic. The creative. The loving.
And the furious. The sobbing. The obsessive. The crazed.

GIVING ROCKS
Exercise your creativity. Collect rocks of different sizes and paint or draw on them. Include inspiring words and images and www.29gifts.org to help our movement grow. Give your rocks away or leave them places for people to find.

HELP OTHERS
Give food to a food pantry or directly to the homeless. Right now I am helping provide shelter for my good friends Ray and Kara who think of themselves as “home free”. Circumstances got them stuck in the Denver area for the winter months when it is too cold to live full time in their van. They are helping me with cooking, cleaning and we are sharing food and meals.

HANDMADE GIFTS
Make your own tree ornaments, greeting cards or, holiday sweets or savory treats. Spend time at http://www.pinterest.com for ideas and www.etsy.com for handmade artisan gifts.

ASK QUESTIONS

Good Giving Weekly: PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION
December 1, 2018

Greetings #29Gifts Community,

Happy December. The new month snuck up on me. Welcome if you are new to www.29gifts.org. Do you have questions for me about how to get started giving or keep your giving groove going after your first cycle of #29Gifts? Post your question in the comments and I will reply. Enjoy this flashback link from 2008 that includes simple giving ideas.
http://www.oprah.com/spirit/cami-walkers-29-gifts

HELLO HOLIDAYS
Winter is settling in Colorado. The mountains are covered in fresh powder, holiday lights are hanging and there is frost in the air. I went to my church this morning to help decorate for Advent then to a recovery meeting. Trooper and I enjoyed a chilly walk on the trails around my apartment with my friend Jannet after the meeting. I have been out of touch with all of you since coming home to Denver. I spent a week in Nebraska visiting family over Thanksgiving. I enjoyed the time with my son, Henry Zane, who will be six in March. He is in kindergarten now, reading a lot of books and enjoying math and science too.

PROGRESS NOT PERFECTION
I have been stressed out catching up with unopened mail and trying to deal with some serious financial stress. I am practicing letting go of perfectionism and instead focus on progress that seems very slow most days. Progress not perfection is a concept from the addiction recovery world. Perfectionism can be a consuming and crippling. Learning to let little things go is a big lesson for me. How about you?

I went to library last week to return an audio book and pick out a new one. A quick dash in and out since I supposed to be picking up 20 crates of milk from an area food bank and delivering it to where I work as the Volunteer Coordinator for a soup kitchen. Since I was in a hurry, I quickly scanned the titles and this title immediately caught my attention. It’s one that I have been meaning to read for some time, so I grabbed it without even thinking about it. I am SO glad I did. Sometimes, we are “directed” by our higher power, and finding this book was meant to be. I knew from the first few lines, that it was EXACTLY what I needed to hear. Just hearing the words lifted my spirits. I have an autoimmune disease, and my current medications have pretty severe side effects that are wreaking havoc on my body, mind, and spirit. The more I listened, the better I have felt. This morning, without even really thinking about it- I gave my first gift. And then a few hours later, on impulse, I gave a second gift, just to be kind. I didn’t get caught up in feeling overly proud of my actions, but felt a quiet, rewarding warmth that filled my heart and soul. I am looking forward to the next 28 days and the joy it brings to the universe. #29daysin2018.

Good Giving Weekly: ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE
November 8, 2018

Greetings #29Gifts Community,

Happy thankful Thursday. November is GRATITUDE MONTH at http://www.29gifts.org. What are you doing to cultivate an ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE? Welcome if you are new or a returning #29Gifts member. If you stay in a space of giving and gratitude, you attract more of what you want in life. During your #29giftsin29days take notice of at least three things you feel grateful for each day. This may be anything from a family member, your health, shelter, or nature. Today I am grateful for my grandparents (who have all passed away). The summer weeks I spent with my grandparents were some of the happiest times of my childhood. Comment on this post and share what you are thankful for today.

TOOTH FAIRY PROGRESS
I saw my Periodontist yesterday for new CT scans and they made impressions. This means we are beginning the process to make my dental implant. I paid the second of four large payments, but need help covering future dental work costs. Are you looking for a simple give today? Give a little (or big) financial gift to help. Some of these funds also help Trooper (my rescue dog) train to be a therapy and service dog. Please give and share this link in the spirit of community!

Hi, Cami! Happy to see the giving continues! I've been feeling low, so figured it was time for a new round of mindful giving. We lost our incredible mother, Anne Meyer, at 94 on September 14. I am so very grateful to have been raised by such a giving, loving, family-centered woman and to have known her as a mother and a friend. She was a member of 29 Gifts years ago, as well, as you may remember. This round is for Mom.

Good Giving Weekly: GRATITUDE ATTITUDE
November 1, 2018

Greetings #29Gifts Community,

Welcome to November, GRATITUDE MONTH at http://www.29gifts.org. What are you doing to cultivate an ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE? Welcome if you are new or a seasoned #29Gifts member. Do you have questions for me about how to get started, or how to keep your giving groove going after your first cycle of #29giftsin29days? Post your question in the comments and I will reply.

My October 30 surgery did not go as planned. We won’t know for four to six weeks if the steps taken so far will resolve the problems with irregular bleeding, pelvic pain, mood swings and other issues. The doctors were unable to do one of the procedures. The endometrial ablation to remove the lining of my uterus was not possible because my uterus was too small. My surgical team removed fibroids and noncancerous polyps from my uterus and did a D&C (dilation and curettage), a procedure where the opening of the cervix is widened and the uterus lining is scraped.

I am a candidate for a hysterectomy, which is surgery to remove a woman's uterus (the place where a baby grows when a woman is pregnant.) After a hysterectomy, you no longer have menstrual periods and can't become pregnant. Sometimes the surgery also removes the ovaries and fallopian tubes. My tubes are tied so I already can’t get pregnant, something I would NEVER do again anyway. I had so many complications during my pregnancy with my one son, Henry Zane, I couldn’t try again and stay sane and healthy.

I HAVE LEARNED TO MAKE GRATITUDE LISTS IN RECOVERY
Today I AM GRATEFUL my mom came to Denver for my surgery and she stayed at my apartment for three nights. I am also thankful for my friends from church, who made lots of good food for me and my mom, sent me nice cards, and everyone everywhere who prayed for me. I still have some vegetarian chili leftover. My mom was also kind enough to clean my kitchen so it is spotless. She even disinfected the refrigerator and stove inside and out.

Good Giving Weekly: PSYCHIC SHIFT
October 26, 2018

Greetings #29Gifts Community,

Once again the news today is full of fear. A suspect was arrested in the investigation of bombs sent to prominent Democrats and critics of President Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced today. Sometimes fear can be a good motivator, if you can harness the energy and redirect it into something positive and uplifting like art, writing or music.

I have been reading You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero, who is one of my writing mentors. When I got the book deal for 29 Gifts, I was part of a nonfiction book proposal course taught by Jen. If you are a writer looking for guidance, I highly recommend her newsletter, books and other resources. Jen talks a lot about harnessing fear in her books. Learn more at http://www.jensincero.com.

PSYCHIC SHIFT
Welcome new givers and seasoned veterans. I hope your #29Gifts challenge is shifting your thinking. Are you spending your day focused on opportunities to be of service to others? Are you developing your abundance mindset? I find that most days the universe presents many giving possibilities in my path. I just have to say, “YES” and follow through on that impulse to give.

Today my gift was to reach out to several friends from my 12-Step meetings by text and phone because one of our young members passed away. There is collective sadness losing a member of our community who was such a bright light to us all.

Do you have questions for me about how to get started, or how to keep your giving groove going after your first cycle of giving? Post your question in the comments and I will reply.

Are you looking for a simple give? I would appreciate prayers and positive energy for my October 30 surgery. There are other ways you can help me and http://www.29gifts.org.

Good Giving Weekly: LET GO LET GOD
October 24, 2018

Greetings #29Gifts Community,

Welcome if you are new to http://www.29gifts.org or a veteran doing a repeat round of #29Gifts. Check out the flashback article, Giving Prescription, written when the book was launching. It offers some simple giving tips.
http://www.oprah.com/spirit/cami-walkers-29-gifts

LET GO AND LET GOD
The news today is full of reports of terrorist activity. A major criminal investigation has been launched after pipe bombs were sent to the homes of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, CNN's New York City headquarters and other targets. All of the packages were intercepted by authorities and nobody was hurt. President Trump said yesterday that Saudi Arabian officials had engaged in the “worst cover-up ever” after the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi earlier this month inside its Turkish consulate. These news reports leave me feeling unsettled and scared. I just did a simple kindness meditation to center and focus.

On a personal note, I am preparing for my October 30 surgery. Please send prayers. My biopsy was benign so we are moving forward with removal of fibroids from my uterus, then a D&C (dilation and curettage), a procedure where the opening of the cervix is widened and the lining of the uterus is scraped away. Last they do an endometrial ablation procedure to remove the lining of the uterus. The goal of the surgery to stop or reduce my bleeding. I am ready to let go and let God take over to guide the doctors.

My mom is coming to Denver to stay with me for a few days after the surgery. People from my church are making meals for us. My friends from 12-step meetings are helping me get to the hospital and back. It is nice people care so much.

WHAT "COUNTS" AS A GIFT?
Gifts can be ANYTHING you offer with mindfulness and positive intention. Clean out your closets and give away clothes, shoes, handbags or toys. Give material items, like money or food. Give time, smiles, compliments or simple prayers. Read to your child. Play with your dog. Pet your cat. Pay for someone's coffee or lunch. Don't forget to make write stories or make art about your #29Gifts experience and share them at www.29gifts.org. Do you have other questions for me? Post them in the comments and I will reply.

Gifts can be ANYTHING you offer with mindfulness and positive intention. Clean out your closets and give away clothes, shoes, handbags or toys. Give material items, like money or food. Give time, smiles, compliments or simple prayers . Read to your child. Play with your dog. Pet your cat. Pay for someone's coffee or lunch. Don't forget to make some art and write stories about your #29Gifts experience and share them here at www.29gifts.org.
