gratitude 1:25:16

As I approach the beginning of February, I am struck by how much my community expands when I ask for what I need. In the case of this blog and LiveBig365 in general, the intention has always been to build a gathering space that expands our awareness of how much stronger we are when we uplift, uphold and support one another in partnership. All of my work centers around this fundamental concept of being wholeheartedly vulnerable in the moment with the intention of building greater connection and belonging; how much wispy wonder emanates from the creation of solid, supportive, supple communities.

So, I need your help.  I am trying to link this concept of partnership and gratitude to communities in need with the intention of generating awareness, support and financial contributions, and I don’t know how to do it. I live in the Twin Cities area and know that there are plenty of worthwhile organizations around which I could begin, but I am unsure how to start.

What are your ideas? Has anyone out there ever done anything like this before? Is it too farfetched an idea? Who do you want to see supported? And of course, I want to have the concept up and running by Valentine’s Day….

Thanks so much already for all of your ongoing support. Let’s see where we can take this, together.




About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION

    This is wonderful that you are going to link your incredible gratitude project to a those in need. I am passionate about supporting women and girls. The number show that when a woman is supported she brings help and support to so many others along with her. So excited to see how all of this unfolds!



  2. I’d be happy to chat and brainstorm some ideas. I run Virtual Giving Circles. Maybe somethng like that would work for you.


  3. I love this so much! From my experience, it has to start on a very basic level. Much of my workforce grew up in under privileged communities. I find that they have never been introduced to the idea of awareness or mindfulness so it’s a slow process. They have, instead, been taught or shown that there are winners and losers and you are either being respected or disrespected and it’s okay to flair your emotions based on which side the outcome they are on. They have never learned that you can chose your emotion. Would love to work with you more on this! xo
