That word – Volunteering!
What does it even mean? Altruism! Active! Charitable activity! Giving back! Love! Helping! Facilitating change! Action! Global citizenship! Seeing the beauty in that ugliness!
It helps fill the world and yourself with hope. Oh how I love volunteering (please give me that word that supersedes love). I have come to embrace volunteering wholeheartedly, it’s my way of life, and it has given me the experience no one else can ever give to me freely.
Truly, Volunteering is a currency that appreciates. It makes good things happen, it makes you see beyond your imagination, beyond your thinking, your knowledge and beyond what you think you see; you learn more, you crave to learn more, it brings you to understand soooooo many complexities of life; the ONLY JOB that gives you the comfort your little can (will, has) go (gone) a long way, that your little is enough, the HOPE of a shattered person. It makes you embrace who you are; it challenges you to take lead, to facilitate change. It makes you view life from different perspectives; it gives you that strength needed from within.
Volunteering fills that void, that emptiness, that ugliness. It gives you that freedom!
Volunteering is what we all need to make that change we wish to see.
The power of volunteering; volunteering is that power!
I shall be writing about my volunteering experiences soon, and how it had helped shaped my life to the woman I am (and have become), who I want to be and what I will be.
