This week we are honoring Martin Luther King Jr. While we know that his main message was equality, if you did a little deeper you will find that community building was a big part of it as well.
I choose to give to the community by volunteering and sitting on the board for the West Metro Miracle League. During the weeks that I have board meetings, I look forward to seeing my fellow board members and sharing what we have to bring to the meeting. In the weeks during our baseball season that I am a volunteer coach, nothing brings me more smiles and inspiration than seeing my team.
Wellness Wednesday Week 3: Share your heart. Start looking for an organization to volunteer with. Check with your local school, church, community center, clinic, or even the vet to find your opportunity! If you really cannot find someway to give of yourself, then donated to your favorite charity or buy a bag of groceries for the local foodshelf. There's always a way to give!
Maybe you will only vounteer once, but maybe you will find something you love, like I did, and find that you want to be more involved.
