I get so tired of sitting home and feeling sorry for myself. Plus, the days fly back and you wonder where the days went. You ask yourself, “What am I do with myself? Life is just passing me by.” I’ve been staying close to home with no social life. I use to be very outgoing and loved to have fun and flirt! But abuse torn me down and have been living a low profile, low self-esteem, and numb life.
However, I’m now trying to make my life better. It’s been hard with so many health issues but I felt like volunteering would help me. And it has. I feel so good about myself. I work at a hospital every week – one day in the emergency room helping and listening to the patients. I realize I’m not alone in my pain. It’s an awakening that my life could be worse. I also volunteer at the American Red Cross doing events, and working on the blood mobile. Both are helping others.
I’m now back at photography – photographing nature, which relaxes me. I love the outdoors! Great therapy!
In summary, I’m begging you, get off your butt and do something that helps others. Maybe there’s a hobby you have been wanting to try – do what makes you feel good, it can make a total difference in your life.
It took me awhile to get the guts to do it, but I prayed, and received the strength to move on with my life.
