CELEBRATING ABUNDANCE I am proud that millions of people have been exposed to the #29Gifts story. Ten years later, I am still on a mission to revive the worldwide giving spirit. The momentum of the 29 Gifts book launch thrust me into the public eye, but I wasn’t ready to to be famous and live transparently. Here is a link to a story I wrote about this time called You Have To Ride The Waves of Life. Get detail about what happened when Mark and I split up in 2009, a low point for me personally. Thankfully today I can celebrate the abundance in my life. http://follr.com/communities/29Gifts/viewpost/45962
BE GENEROUS WITH YOURSELF Remember this October, I encourage you to start each day with gratitude and try giving a gift to yourself. Giving to yourself not only “counts” as part of your #29Gifts–it serves as a reminder that you are worthy of receiving. It increases your sense of abundance and rejuvenates your spirit. Try giving gifts of self care like warm baths, reading, writing a poem or other stress relievers. What kind of gifts will fill your well? Comment to add your own ideas.
