Greetings 29 Gifts Community,

Welcome new 29Givers. Welcome back if you are returning to our community.

CAMI’S WEEKLY MESSAGE
As we wrap up November, practice giving from the energy of gratitude every day -- not just on Thanksgiving. Notice how freeing it is to give from your full heart. As your life fills and runs over with blessings, remember that staying grateful is how we attract abundance.

Be curious, enjoy the adventure of giving your gifts to the world and stay open to receive something unexpected from the Universe.

If you are looking for inspiration, reflect on these quotes about living thankfully.

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." Marcel Proust

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend." Melody Beattie

"Silent gratitude isn't very much use to anyone." Gertrude Stein

I am grateful for the freedoms that our nation offers me. In a recent speech my friend First Sergeant Curtis Brandt spoke on the terrific impacts made by our military as they do what they consider to be "common" or "ordinary."

Greetings 29 Gifts Community,

GO GRATITUDE

Gratitude is a powerful spiritual tool. It opens your heart and increases your capacity to receive gifts from the universe. The Law of Attraction tells us what you focus your attention and energy on expands. Fuel your zest for life by staying mindful of the bounty you experience each day.



If you have read or listened to 29 Gifts, you know I struggle with mental health challenges. Depression, anxiety, and insomnia have been my companions since I was a young child. I have been clinically diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Major Depression and Borderline Personality Disorder. I am also an addict/alcoholic in recovery. I live with Multiple Sclerosis and Fibromyalgia, so physical pain, fatigue, cognitive problems and other disturbing symptoms hound me.



I had my first panic attack when I was eight. I was in the back seat of our old Suburban with my two sisters. My dad was driving us into the Rocky Mountains for a vacation in Estes Park, Colorado. It was snowing and it was dark out. The only thing I could see was the blowing white flakes and the steep drop off the side of the mountain on my left side. I started to cry frantically and hyperventilate. My heart raced and pounded and I felt crippled.
