A big thank you to everyone that has joined me on my new blogging journey! I spent the last few days in Boston, MA celebrating my 24th birthday and to say I’m lucky is an understatement. I met a former mayor, I went to a bar made out of ice, a Red Sox game, Quincy Market, Faneuil Hall, Wahlburgers, Sam Adams, Harvard, the Mapparium, and even to Salem for a day trip…it was quite an adventure!
No matter where I go, though, I’m reminded that it’s important to recognize our blessings and to try to see the perspectives of others that might not be so lucky at the moment. I say “at the moment” because we all have a lot to be thankful for and we all have ups and downs. Our good days might not coincide, but a few bad days doesn’t make for a bad life. As a society, we’re only as up as our lowest is down. So let’s all get along, make the most, and hope.
With this blog, I plan to post a lot more than about my time volunteering on the 13th of every month. I want to spotlight different local charities. I want to pass along volunteer opportunities that I think y’all might be interested in. I want to feature the good that others do. I’m very excited for this new opportunity and I can’t wait to see the next twists and turns this roller coaster of a life has ahead for me.
