Every year I dreaded my birthday. I always felt like I didn’t have enough or believed in the myth that “more was better.” It was only when I learned that giving provided the things I was really craving in life-love, peace and connection-that the need for more fell away.
While my birthday has passed, the giving continues.
Right now I raised $175 from my gracious friends and family. But I would love for you to feel how good it is to give too. When we contribute in ways we can, we get back so much. It’s a wonderful feeling. But in addition to the experience of giving, I would love to give you a gift if you donate anything even it’s just $1.
For the first person who donates to my team to help save the environment, I’m excited to be able to giveaway a brand new book on ways to reduce stress and practice mindfulness every day. One of the authors, Dr. Goldstein writes for Psych Central, a site I regularly blog at. He provides really useful and amazing tips to live a life with more peace in his book MBSR Every Day. I would love to send it to you today.
