I've recently been feeling a lot better about myself. I had been going through a bit of a slump on the self esteem wagon for just about all of November and a bit of December. But this week I've just really been turning myself around. I think my new gym membership has had a lot to do with it. Returning to my exercise routine just makes me feel so good. I think I'm getting slightly addicted to it. I crave my time on the elliptical. I look forward to running the track with my ipod blasting away. I do a lot of thinking while I'm exercising too. So my mind always is so clear afterward. I'm usually figuring out how to solve my current stressful situation the easiest and least painful way to go about it or just thinking about how I can better myself in general. Recently I've been thinking more about the latter option. I decided that I want to make a difference in other people's lives. I want to donate my time somewhere where I can get to know the people I'm helping. That's as far as I've gotten though. I'm not exactly sure what I'm destined for. I'm thinking of donating my time at the Co-op, or perhaps a food/clothing bank, and my other thought is at a local hospital. I may even end up helping out at all three eventually. But after christmas I'm gonna figure it out, and start this up. I just think that this would be a great oppurtunity for me to not only help others in need but also really get to know my community and make new friends. I'm super excited about it!!!
