To me

Tuesday, May 06, 2008

To me doing spark people is more than just doing something to lose the weight. It is giving me the chance to prove I can do it. It also is helping me get healthier so I can do other things I desire. I've always wanted to be more involved in the community.

Anytime I can I do. While an undergrad I did student government and worked with the campus theatre. In graduate school I was in the graduate student senate. But community service can be less dramatic and probably more helpful, just subtle. Go to the local high school's athletic event and cheer the kids on. Go to their play or concert. Go see their art or other presentations.

Give a donation of more than just money but time to a non-profit. Serve a meal at a homeless shelter. Take your old clothes you don't want anymore and give them to the homeless shelter or some other non-profit.

Take the time to breath, live and enjoy all that you have...then dive in again and help those who have less. You will be surprised when you realize all that you have.

    Thank you for this reminder to enjoy life and help others...Sometimes we get so bogged down in our own lives we tend to forget there are others who have less than we do ...thank you once again...
