I’m gaining conviction and I am filled with excitement for it all.
I owe a lot to health and recovery. And this site, for being able to get out some of my thoughts out and see them.
So this morning I formulated the question into google: ‘volunteering in (blank) township’, and there’s oodles of things for me to digest, first.
So far it’s speak about ‘committees’ and ‘boards’, so of course knowing me I now have a critique on some of the verbiage! Ahaha.
I am so ready though, and am like a ‘coiled spring’ for giving back, NOW.
I never really left my hometown save for college and a few stints having my own apartment. I won’t beat the drum and chest pound about what I’ve managed so far But I’ve scratched at this concept in my past (and it’s telling to me now) and this is before I consciously knew it was an ‘ache’ or ‘itch’ in me.
What really ‘gets me’ going and what I have a lot of bias for, is food insecurity in the schools, I presume it occurs somehow, someway, across the board.
So I’m ‘willing and able’ to give SOME and even will be posIng a question soon to the right people [if]:
I can break bread, too (with parents? Or the child in question?) and interface SOME with those I aim to help.
(To fill bellies a little better and do some good talking/sharing about stigma since they no doubt get that even before they know the word for it.)
My money is where my mouth is on this.
I’ll be keeping the forum in the know, like a commitment, because I think it’s going to heal me further, as well.
I will execute though and am treating this post as again a commitment to do more, get out more, etc., etc.
