Welcome to 2015. How are those New Year’s resolutions coming?
Annually, you may establish some vague ideas or solidified action points of how you can do this year differently. However, the gyms are thinning out, some folks have already checked the “accomplished” box, or there some who never jumped on the resolution bandwagon. But along the way you review internally if you should be chasing after an improved or better version of “me”.
Even if done annually though, you find that there’s still something lacking. So that begs the better question – if it’s not all about “me“, how I can focus on a better version of “we”?
When you look around your neighborhood, family, economy, community… what ONE thing captures or breaks your heart? Perhaps, our hearts are broken by human need – At CityLink Center we move towards mending those and growing stronger when coming together as ONE team addressing the issue of poverty in our city ONE individual at a time.
You might have an excuse –
- Nothing is going to change
- I’m too old or too young
- I don’t have any skills to be useful
- God should send someone to take care of that!
This is where “we” gets buried or forgotten. BUT you are a part of the solution! Think about the people that inspire or that you admire – they didn’t set out to take on the whole problem by themselves. They instead came alongside others; their “me” was included in a “we” and they took it one step at a time.
Here’s the rebuttal to those excuses:
- Change is already happening
- As long as you’re 18 years or older, join the movement
- We have over 25 Volunteer Roles serving Monday-Friday
- God should send someone to take care of that – He did… look in the mirror
Join us in the grand adventure; the movement of reducing poverty in our city; changing lives one Volunteer shift at a time.
