I have been planning to start the 29 Day Giving challenge on October 1st. Today I decided it I would start sooner. I felt I needed to take my focus off my own problems and onto the joy of giving. What is the 29 Day Giving Challenge? The premise is: GIVE A LITTLE EACH DAY. MAKE A BIG IMPACT. You give one thing away each day for 29 days. Why? Because to see our world change, we have to do something to change our world. If you are interested in join, go to the 29-Day Giving Challenge website.
So for this first day of giving, I am giving 3 things. First, I want to give you all a HUGE virtual hug. I appreciate all your comments, concern and emails I've recieved over the past few days. The support and love you have all shown me has been so wonderful. I thank you all from the bottom of my sore little heart.
Second, I'm giving to myself-forgiveness, compassion and understanding. I've been really hard on myself over things going on with and in relation to my reunion and beating myself up.
Third, I want to give something creative and fun to someone. I have this fun Japanese Beadwork book that I'd like to gift to someone.
I don't know what the title says but it has a number of really cool ring projects, as well as other jewelry items. It's all in Japanese, but the illustrations are enough information for you to make any project.
Leave a comment below between now and next Wed (Sept 30) and I'll use the random generator to pick someone.
I think this will help me stay focused on all the good things I have in my life, not the down times. Life is short, why waste it on feeling miserable?
