Interesting concept, from an African medicine woman. Give away 29 gifts in 29 days, and see how life will unfold in a different way. How many kind gestures come back to you. The benefits being spiritually and emotionally.
Her “prescription” for this involves 29 gifts in 29 days, and they are to be given in a row, and should you miss a day, you need to start over.
I am following along, and as I am not so sure I will be THAT strict on it, it has made me think. Interesting, that I have not once started my day thinking ” what will be my gift to give today?” but instead, the opportunity to GIVE has come to me, somewhere throughout each day. Of course, I generally try to be nice to others, as most are etc etc……but this steps it up a little. Makes you see loud and clear that one gift opportunity that you may have otherwise easily overlooked in a days time. The chance to GIVE have come to me in very peculiar ways.
In other ways, I have also been GIVEN gifts. Not materially, and monetary, but they ARE gifts, coming to me in a very quiet unsuspecting manner. I will not go into detail, but the irony is that have COME to me. I am a believer now. I will continue to follow along.
Sometimes it is a small gesture, a helping hand or a listening ear when you would have NOT given it before. Maybe it is money, or an actual gift. Regardless, each “gift” that I have given would have gone unnoticed before I began this book.
