Assessing Current Lifestyle: Goal 3: Community Involvement

colourful-volunteer-vectorI’ve always been activity in community active and service.  However, I realized I’ve mostly volunteered through my children’s activities and organizations they belonged to.

I’ve never been a church goer (whole other story).  But I really feel the need to find my niche here in my new town.

I’ve had mixed experiences in the past.  Especially with scouts and school groups.  It’s not that the cause was wonderful.  It’s just that some people sorta act like there is a million dollar prize at the end of the year and they don’t care how much they step on people to keep their name  as the only icon of the service project – what ever that may be.  Not to mention those parents who think they or their child should get special treatment because they have served.  I had a terrible experience of a group that asked me to help because they were looking for new ideas.  When I expressed some fundraising ideas we had done in the past, I was later confronted by the “Queen Bee” of the group, that my “new” ideas weren’t needed and I should go back where I came from.

But, I’ve got plenty of time on my hand, and I no longer have to rely on my children to find my community involvement.  So It’s time to find my  outlet to serve.

Stay tuned to see where I end up with that!
