Volunteering on My Bucket List
Monday, April 13, 2015
I've received a lot of comments on my blogs creating my Bucket List. Thanks to everyone for your suggestions, enthusiasm for my choices and encouragement that I go for it. I found the simple exercise of creating a Bucket List to be energizing and satisfying. How much more so will the actual doing of those things be!
An important value that the exercise reinforced for me is giving to others or, in other words, volunteerism. When I reread my first blog of items for my Bucket List, I was struck by the fact that the items were all about me, where I want to go, what I want to do. I didn't like that because that isn't the way I want to live the rest of my life. If you read my second and third Bucket List blogs, you will see that opportunities to volunteer are there. I am just as excited about, if not more so, pursuing the volunteering items as I am about doing the most exotic of the other items.
So here's to Bucket Lists. I highly recommend you make one for yourself.
