Our Give Away Jar

Some days we give away a dollar when we're out and about, and some days we fill a money jar at home, and some days we do both! Every once in a while, it's time to empty that jar, and today is the day!! We're going to split the stack of $1 bills and use half to feed hungry families and the other half to donate for clean water. Blessings!!!

The Cure For Hurriedness

Well, here we are in the last month of 2014, and I’m starting to feel that hurriedness of the holiday season, trying to get everything done before Christmas and the New Year, finishing up business matters, and so on. And I’m wondering if you’re asking yourself the same question that I’m now asking – “how did this year go by soooo fast?”

OK, Todd... remember to take time out to breathe… :)

One of the best ways for me to slow down, and to take a pause from the hurriedness – whether it be end of year, or anytime during the year – is to reflect on how grateful I am for all of the abundance in my life. Not just money, not just things, but for love, family, and good health!

So when I give away my dollars this week, I am choosing to slow down… to pause and reflect… to be thankful… and to take time out for my gratitude really unfolding in each moment and to be genuinely released when I give away each dollar!

Ahh… now that feels right… and it feels good!
