In our personal lives and work, we often face similar challenges that other individuals and businesses face, this is the cycle of life. I enjoy giving back as it’s an opportunity to share my personal challenges and experiences with others who may be going through similar struggles. There are many ways to give back and for me personally, it’s a wonderful feeling to know that someone was helped, it feels good to do good and to make a difference.
I believe in community involvement and giving back to the community as much as possible, whether it’s through my business or my own time and resources. Support comes in many shapes and sizes, but the end result is always a one-size fits all feeling of gratitude. At some point in all of our lives, we’ve all been the recipient of help from others. It is not just a good thing to do to pay it forward, but I believe it is our duty to try to make the world a better place.
In a time of need, we could also benefit from help. The same theory applies to helping others. It’s such an enjoyable feeling to realize one’s power to effect change. It something that I am very passionate about, spreading positive vibes and feeling of hope. The benefits are truly felt on both ends as the giver and receiver AND volunteering has actually been proven to be good for your health and your happiness, who doesn’t want that!?
No matter how we give back, it’s not the act that matters, even the teeniest good deed can ignite change and positively impact someone’s life by providing a renewed sense of hope. We could all learn and benefit from the power of hope.
