And So It Goes

For the past 29 days I’ve been following a prescription of giving.  The prescription came from author Cami Walker and her book, 29 Gifts; How a Month of Giving can Change your Life.

It certainly changed mine.

Through acts of mindful generosity I’ve found a way to carry my Depression and General Anxiety Disorder over to a path of healing.  I still have an infinite number of questions and very few answers, but the point of It (now, I’m convinced)is to live in a state of perpetual gratitude.

Perpetual gratitude (what others might call enlightenment), I believe is the reward for mastering the practice of Thanksgiving – that beautiful everlasting cycle of giving and receiving. A meditative mantra of, “thank you,” and “you’re welcome.”

This blog, amandathanks is an extension of the work I started with the 29-Gifts prescription.  It’s a place to share my on-going practice of Thanksgiving and an invitation to begin a practice of your own – however and whenever feels right.

I’m deeply grateful for each moment you spend with me and my words.

Thank you.
