Something I’ve realized in the past few years is that when we are individually on a good path, we’re better suited to step out of our comfort zone and give back to our communities in both time and money. How many times have you heard someone say, “When I win the lottery, I’d give…” or “When I retire, I’m going to start volunteering for…”? Times are changing and trends are definitely pointing out that volunteers are starting at earlier ages and incorporating their service with their ever shifting lifestyle: from high school to college to early in career to parent to executive to retiree.

We all at some points in our lives question where we are on our path, what our priorities are, and where we’d like to be in the near future. If we had that “great” job or lived in that “perfect” house, would we be that much more stable or more content? What if we just had a daily schedule that we were happy with: a lifestyle that supported us, meaningful relationships with our friends and families, and overall home and life security. At that point, is it possible for us to start giving an hour a month or week to help others in need?

Something that people are often surprised about is how fulfilling the simple act of giving can be. Maybe the compassion we share with others will come back to us in other ways. Maybe it will help us in how we define our life needs.
