I was catching up on FB when I came across So Wonderful So Marvelous latest blog post. She is doing the 29 days of Giving Challenge and has in turn inspired me to do so as well.
The premise is simple really, everyday do something for someone else... from the ning site, 29 Gifts is a global giving movement with nearly ten thousand members in 42 countries. Our collective mission at 29 Gifts is to revive the giving spirit in the world. We change lives—and change the world—one gift at a time. Give one thing away each day for 29 days. Your 29 Gifts can be anything given to anyone... money, food, old sweaters, smiles, your time, kind words or thoughts.
This appeals to me on many levels, but mainly because I think (at least for me) it is so easy to get caught up in our own lives and sometimes live in our own little 'me,me,me world'. By joining the challenge I am holding myself accountable gaining an attitude of gratitude and hope to make an impact on someones life everyday, no matter how big or small. Plus I will hopefully set an example for my own children, who, after all, are a 'reflection of me'.
I won't post every day but I will update my facebook status every day, so if your not already my FB friend just click the FB icon on my sidebar so you can follow my journey.
If you would care to join me and many others on this journey just click below
My confession for today: I think I just did my first act of giving...in the form of SILENCE-while Eric was smacking away on his cereal *ugh* I did not once sigh heavily,roll my eyes or leave the room...I just bared it...I think I am off to a good start =)
