I’m so excited! I’ve been so inspired to start doing more and giving in my life. I think part of it is acknowledging and celebrating my blessings. The other part is wanting to leave a mark on the world that means it is better for my having been here. My dear friend, Anita, shared a blog with me today that is getting my excitement level up again. Click here to read more.
The concept is to gather a group of friends who are willing to help and then go do the number of Acts of Kindness as years you celebrate on your birthday. Since this year is my big “50”, that means I need a Giving Crew to start working with, plotting and planning with, to perform 50 Acts of Kindness on my 50th birthday in August.
My mind is reeling with possibilities. I’m open to any ideas – shower me with your ideas of fun and meaningful things I can do. I’ll put in my plans and on the big day, and leading up to it, I’ll blog and post on FB my adventures for the “Great Giving Day of 8-13-13”, my 50th birthday.
Let us give, with a generous, happy heart, and be blessed!
“When you give to or do something for another person you set into motion the flow of giving in the world. Your impact multiplies and swirls in every direction because giving is not a static energy. Give, change the world, and be blessed!” ~ Barbara Bernard Miller
I am so inspired by people who are not famous celebrities and yet they take their “ordinary” lives and do great things with them. I’ve recently heard of and/or met people who are adopting children that other’s have turned away, or are volunteering great amounts of time or money in spite of working two jobs to support their family, or diligently tending to the sick or elderly, or they’ve created a charity because they see need in front of their face that they can’t live with. I’m in awe at how much of their spirit they are sharing in the world.
In my book, MIGHTY INSPIRATION, Love Letters from God, the foundational message is all about identifying and using our gifts. We have the ability to use the spirit inside of us to change our world – one person, one small act of kindness at a time. I’m still discovering my gifts – and the best part is … there is no wrong answer. If my heart is leading me in any direction, it really is the best direction for me at this moment in time. So, this month I’m adding two new community activities/charities to my plate. I do this not so that I feel better about myself but because I want to find a way to make a difference. I want my heart and hands to join with others to create a world I’m dreaming of.
I hope that you are discovering your gifts and forging bravely into action as you stir up your passions!
