Giving Back Tuesdays

The 29-Day Giving Challenge - "Give a little each day. Make a big impact." Give one thing away each day for 29 days and see how it impacts your life to focus on giving...

I was visiting the blog FifiFlowersDecor and read about her commitment to take this 29-Day Challenge. As soon as I clicked on the link to the website, I immediately felt a conviction to take on this challenge. I have been spending so much time focusing on myself, dealing with the fact that I was recently laid off and focusing on the business I'm launching; I feel this challenge comes to me at the perfect time. I'd like to step outside my comfort zone and busy schedule, even if for a few minutes, to focus my energy and heart on someone else. I couldn't find a reason NOT to take the challenge - I felt there wasn't any excuse to not give a little more of myself, every day for 29 days! So, I begin my 29-Day Giving Challenge today. If you'd like to give it a try and join me, you can begin anytime you're ready. Click here to get started!

Here are the details...you can start your own personal 29-Day Giving Challenge anytime; your 29 gifts can be anything - money, food, old sweaters, smiles, your time, kind words or thoughts; you can share your journey with others in several ways, one being through the community network where you can post your personal experiences and read other's stories...click here to read more about the rules. I'll post updates periodically about my progress and how this challenge is changing my life :) And please let me know if you've decided to take on this challenge as well! I'd love to hear your experiences and stories!
