Kahlil Gibran said, "You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give." I have volunteered in many different places over the years. Although there is value in all giving of yourself and your time, the ones that changed me were the ones that I enjoyed. Unfortunately, some things that I tried to volunteer in just were not a good fit, and I dreaded going and did not really enjoy it. Then there are other opportunities that I am excited to go to; the time just flies by, I do not want it to end, and I am inspired through it. Find those areas for yourself, and volunteer your time.
