Volunteering

Photo by mikebairdI do a lot of volunteer hours through Girl Scouts, but I recently added something in. I started going to a local non-profit two times a week at lunch to help in their mail room.

Why am I giving up 2/5 of the only truly free time I have a week? Because it gives me a sense of peace to be there, helping with a cause I believe in, and I am always thanked.

I find that helping something else is actually helping me most of all.
