Hey everyone!! It's been awhile since I've last been on! I miss so many of you. About 2 months ago I went through a life changing event. My ex of 2+ years and I broke up... it was devastating. We've broken up before. I made a career move that same week and I haven't looked back! I decided this time that I was moving on and I didn't want to go backwards because I wanted to start moving onto being HAPPY. So, It's been TWO, at the beginning hard but now FABULOUS, months! My new job is AMAZING!! I absolutely love it. My inner self is SO much happier (plus it helps that I am a lot more financially stable than 2 months ago). I have decided to open a spa in my hometown and now we're just looking out for locations, so things are beginning to get put back in place (although it would be the icing on the cake if a nice man walked by... haha). Anyway, on to the point of my thread... This Christmas my company is helping out a family of 3; two kids and a single mom. The mom was in a domestic violence case and it was recently where the kids were allowed to go back into public school. Because of the severity of their father, they were so afraid to go to school that they had to be home school for 2 years!! So this year we are giving them their Christmas dinner and we're loading them up with gifts beyond gifts. It really makes me feel good that a little something can go a long way. So because I was thinking of this and I didn't want to stop helping (I must've spent at least 200$ on this family so far and we've only known for about a week who the family was) I realized that I really want to volunteer as a youth mentor with either the Big Sister's Organization or the Elizabeth Fry Organization. I looked back on my life and I realized that I was lucky to have the people that I have. To now be in a good place and have worked very hard to get here. I am financially stable and still very young and I thought that I'd share a bit of myself and give a little at the same time to someone who needs a little light. Has anyone volunteered as a youth mentor before? What can you expect?
