Recently I picked up a SMARTY Member’s book, 29 Gifts, by Cami Walker. Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, her life turned on it’s head in a single hour. Cami takes us through a journey of giving back as an inroads to healing that is truly extraordinary, and reminded me to get out of my head, get out of my own way, get out of my business, get out of my own problems and challenges – not just today, but every day.
It’s cliche to say something like, “appreciate everything you have” or, “be grateful for your health” – we all intuitively realize that – and it’s probably impossible to realize those things as often as we should. As entrepreneurs, every day is filled with challenges and obstacles, both positive and negative, and we don’t usually consider some of the basics that make being a free agent possible.
Cami’s book details her “giving” path – and a unique, unexpected one it is, and inadvertently sets the bar for all of us to take the 29 Gifts challenge. Check it out. See if you’re up for it. See what it could mean in your life.
Women entrepreneurs are some of the strongest, bravest people I know, and if anyone can embrace this philosophy, it’s YOU. Find Cami here and see if you can’t step up to the plate as she did. Although you’ll be giving something away, you’ll find there are many selfish rewards.
