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.
