Sorry it has been so long since my last post - I've started vlogging as well - but sometimes there is nothing like sitting down and just typing what you think and feel!
First of, we don't exist in a vacuum. What I mean is, we live in communities and I believe in life we are only as strong as our weakest friends. We are a local and global village - I want to help support people - and not because I get any benefit from it other than the feeling of helping those in need. I've been in need before in my life - And I'm someone who has been blessed by the kindness of others.
I am now blessed in a business where I can make money, so I want to use the resources I have to not only help support my own personal family - but also to help support my community. I know that long after I'm gone, the actions I either took or didn't take will affect future generations (mine and others) and I want to make sure I am living consciously in business and in my personal choices as well.
My husband says sometimes I do too much - I join too many committees or volunteer for too many events. But I don't know if that's possible - I want to help people, in any way I can, while I still can, because I know that some day I will not be able to.
I hope that others feel the same, but it is enough for me to know I am trying my best and doing everything I can to make sure the world is a beautiful and wonderful place for my daughter to grow up in.
