to help others is to help yourself
a few weeks ago i joined a volunteer organisation called "befriending lonely elderly"in london. the organisation befriends around 400 isolated older people each year - most of whom are over 80 years old (with long term health problems and limited mobility). the vision of the organisation is a borough in which no older person is isolated.
do you remember how a few month ago i wished for a fake aunt?
a fake grandpa and grandma is as wonderful - i tell you.
if you have some time aside - you may have a look at some volunteer work near you - there are so many nice projects involving nature, animals, elderly, children, homeless, disabled...
its such a warm and lovely feeling to donate time to others
to help others is to help yourself.
