By merely doing things to fit in, you might not realize your true passion in life. Each of has a purpose here and we are all driven by something. What is it that drives you? What are you really passionate about? For me, it's helping others. For years, I dreamed of joining the Peace Corps or simply traveling over seas to work on a nutrition related project that helps poor communities grow their own food. I thoroughly enjoy volunteer work with kids and I've really been missing my girlies I used to nanny for. Presently, I can't afford to just up and fly across the country to volunteer. I'm not letting go of that dream but looking locally for now. So after talking with my hubby about volunteer options, we came up with a great plan! We have decided to sign up for Big Brothers Big Sisters and hope we can help make a difference. I'm very excited about this and my goal is to get our applications sent in by the end of this week. They are an amazing organization and I can't wait to get started! Check out the above link if you are interested in more information.
This may be a small step towards my goal, but it's what I can do today. What have you always wanted to do? Start moving in that direction, whether you take baby steps or giant strides, do something! I believe you can do anything you put your whole heart into. You may have to be creative if it doesn't work the first time, but stick with it. You deserve to happy and guess what?? You, my dear, are in control of your own happiness.
