Good Giving Weekly - Progress not Perfection December 7, 2017
CAMI’S WEEKLY MESSAGE I am practicing letting go of perfectionism. Instead I am embracing progress and allowing myself to make mistakes that help me learn life lessons. I try to stay mindful and notice shifts in energy and connections between my intentions and my actions. During December, we encourage you to give "Outside the Box." Challenge yourself to give without spending money. Be creative and have fun. Take notice of the blessings in your life, and build yourself up with positive acts that are gifts to those around you. Find ideas and comment and add your ideas for Gifting Outside the Box. http://follr.com/Communities/29Gifts/MemberProfile/101366#
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 or handbags. 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 at www.29gifts.org
