In this week’s episode, I talk about exploring volunteer opportunities that add magic to your life.
Have you ever been happy with the way something was, but then you learned there was a new and improved version? Initially, you scoffed at the idea that it could get any better.
You shook your head and rolled your eyes (or maybe even rolled your head and shook your eyes!) at why anyone would think they could improve upon perfection!
You gave the new “whatever” a try and found yourself impressed–even amazed! Yes, this was EVEN BETTER than the original!
That’s what volunteering can do. It can add even more to your already great life. And if you feel like your life is lacking in some way, volunteering might be the piece that is missing.
