Today's kindness post is about volunteering. It's something which helps others but also has many benefits to oneself as well.
If you saw my last post "Why I deleted all my social media accounts" you will already know that I have no longer any social media accounts. What I discovered is that that without Facebook or Twitter or Instagram I have SOOO much more time on my hands. I also already feel lighter and happier.
I was pondering what to do with this extra time, I wanted to do more art and connect more with people in person. I also wanted to do something more meaningful with my time so the answer was clear, volunteer.
I'm not the only one who says volunteering is good for everyone involved.
The article I will share with you today starts like this:
"I have figured out the secret to life. That’s a bold statement, I know, but I have had a couple of years to observe this in action. Lean in close and I’ll share it with you ... the secret is Volunteering. "
When you read the full article of countless others like it, you can see how helping others and being kind to others helps more than just those around you. It helps the person giving as well.
Full article here.
Love and Light to you all and until tomorrow.
