What if we could counteract some of the hatred in the world so often expressed in bitter words and acts of violence with LOVE?
Starting Feb 14th, I will officially join the movement called “29 Gifts”, where I will publicly share my journal entries of “giving from the heart” for 29 days.
For those unfamiliar, 29 Gifts is a book written by Cami Walker, whom after a month of being married to the man of her dreams learns she has multiple sclerosis. Shortly after this diagnosis, the MS starts taking a strong hold on Cami’s body and her mind. With worry, no sleep, a racing mind, a debilitating body, and a disheartened soul as the recipe she was experiencing on a daily basis, how can anyone get better, feel better, let alone heal?
It wasn’t until her neighbor/medicine woman Mbali introduces her with a new recipe to try called 29 gifts. The intention is to give something graciously each day for 29 days. She tells Cami that “by giving” her focus will be on what she has to offer others. “When you give with an open heart, you receive the profound gift of humility.” What unfolds for Cami during her month of giving graciously is truly amazing, heartfelt, and better than any medicine in the world.
Join me on this journey of gratitude…
Let’s come together in the spirit of giving. All you need is the intention and a pen so that you can journal your experience. You can also share it with others on “rosangelperez.com”, Facebook’s “The Gratitude Movement”, or the place where it all started… 29gifts.org.
Let’s stop denying humankind the love which they crave so deeply. Let us heal ourselves and others with love.
You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain.
