There is a Chinese saying that goes: “If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.”

Something that really fuels me and makes me feel good is completely taking myself out of the picture and focusing my love and efforts on someone or something else entirely. Donating my time, efforts, or money helps lift my spirits knowing I am making the world a better place!

This is not at all a post trying to force you into donating your hard-earned money, it’s actually something else entirely.

It’s a challenge…

I challenge you to find something that you enjoy, something you are passionate about, or something that you feel you can make a difference towards AND DO IT. Maybe you have wanted to start volunteering in your community more, maybe you have always wanted to join a self-help group but kept making excuses not to, or maybe you have wanted to donate to something.

First of all, good for you. Secondly, take this positive energy and do something about it! If you have a dollar and a dream, you can make the world a better place!

Here are a list of some places I donate to/ feel passionately about.

-The Water Project

-Before the Flood

This list shall continue at a later date! Alas, be the good you want to see in the world, trust me…the world will follow. You have a community of mellow-folks who have your back.
