On Day 1 I was traveling and decided to gift toll fare to the car behind me. As soon as I gifted the toll my spirits lifted as I thought about the unexpected joy it may have brought to a fellow traveler. A few miles later a car passed in front of me and the driver gave me a couple of waves and then continued on his way. I began thinking about how nice it was to make a connection with someone as we drove on the highway to our separate destinations... sometimes driving can feel so isolating and I was happy to be reminded about how easy it can be to connect.
It's Day 2 and I have gifted a co-worker a dark-chocolate covered oreo from a local candy shop, and also a note thanking her for all the ways she goes "above and beyond" at work and how helpful she is to me. I am so thank-full that she is so great at her work and how her doing her best allows me to complete my work more easily and also supports me to do my best work. She is amazing and I hope the surprise brings a smile to her face.
I have so much gratitude for the 29 Gifts book. I have read it in the past, and again now, and it uplifts my mood and re-minds me of what I know is true. I love the positivity it fosters. I have always considered it important to share my light with the world... and I am so happy to be a part of this movement. Thanks!
