Personal Challenge: Serve Others

Through Inspired Vision’s blog I found this piece Cecelia had reblogged and I thought it was worth doing as well.

It has made me think about what it is that I can do to serve others in the community. We get so wrapped up in our lives and our dramas we forget the struggles other have, struggles that are far more difficult than our own. I think The Laughing Bunny is an inspiration…and you really should check out this first in a series of posts.

Personal Challenge: Serve Others

Most New Year’s resolutions are self-serving. There is nothing wrong with wanting to lose weight or reduce your blood pressure; however, I want to do something for others this year. Besides, I think I am as sexy as I will ever be. Last year, my resolution was to socialize more, which meant I had to break that triangle of work, bar, and home. Thanks to the support of my friends, I did! I immersed myself into photography and writing as well as enjoyed time on the Chesapeake Bay. I visited a winery and a wine festival with friends. I even invited friends to stay with me — which I’ve never had anyone but family stay with me. Some of my friends are involved, with the charity organization Friends of the Wounded Veterans (FOTWV). I just started getting involved and I am anxious to do more. I think I have found a way to help others by using my passion for photography and writing and my love for history and veterans….

  1. One of the things that brought me back here after my first visit was your anti factory farming badge.
    I don’t read all your posts, but from the ones I do, I would say that you are very engaged in the world and ready to reflect and effect change.

  2. I totally agree with what you say here and yes, we should all be asking ourselves what we can give to others or what we can do for others, society may seem very me, me, me these days but there are a lot of unsung heroes out there….

    1. You are so right…but I am not sure what to do about it all. Living in a small town restricts you a little…and i would prefer to help out somehow with animals I think…but I am investigating as we speak.

There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
