As I mentioned in my last post, the book "29 Gifts" has really touched my heart. I have decided to not wait until I finish it but to just jump in since it is September 1st. The only "problem" is that, as with most challenges in my life, as soon as I made the decision to start- I found my brain kicking into "planning" mode. What can I give? Who can I give to? Planning this out will take away from the spirit of the challenge. So I had to stop and rewind. The only "gift" I am planning is books I bought for my parents. Since I am going to see them this weekend- I will bring their gifts. Before I do however- I think I will write a note and put it in the book.
The challenge is mindful giving. On the site it asks- "What do you most want to receive?" My answer was peace and contentment in my soul. I think this will help me greatly in my quest to live a positive life. If I receive other "gifts" in the process- they will be bonuses.
So now I begin- I will keep you updated on my progress.
