Today I’m going to practice sharing me:

My best self

My laughter

My energy

My smile

My openness

My attitude

My talent

My wisdom

My willingness

My inner peace

My patience

My attention

My wholeness

My spirit

My joy

My vision

My dream

My beauty

My presence

My life

Won’t you please join me?

    Ahhh, that word “gift” must have been in the cosmos yesterday. I love it! And I love the idea of sharing myself as a gift with the world: in how I breathe, act, think, and in how I simply am.

    You’re a phenomenal gift, Tess, and I’m grateful each day I get to witness or experience you.
    Happy Monday!

    Tess, I’m in. And in one of your comments you wrote “dancing through life” that is how I want to live…always dancing! It is the best!

    Carolynn 09.28.09 at 1:50 pm

    This is lovely and something I aspire to do on a daily basis. Sometimes the effect is more deeply profound than others. It is always good.

    If your heart is dancing I count that as dancing and yours does!

    I feel the same way about you. Let’s just call it Divine Order.

    I really don’t think you need a reminder because you do this already but I’ll go along with it;)

    Dance on!

    Yes it’s always good and it’s all good!

    I definitely want you to bring dessert!

    Thanks for the warning but I don’t know what it means or how to fix it. I’ll ask Lance. He knows everything!

    Party at Karls and he’s bringing dessert;)

    Yes we’re dancing, shining and radiating today, can’t get any better than this.

    Bring your friends as guests!

    You rock!

    Yes love in action thats it! Can you bring a dish of joy to pass?

    Thanks for the compliment. If you spot it you got it!
