Sometimes things don't always work out the way we expected. As a result, it's easy to shut down and just throw in the towel. Or maybe hiding under the covers, shutting off your phone, and staying in bed is more of your style. Either way, that doesn't solve anything. I admit that it is much easier to focus on all the things that go wrong in your life, but that's no way to live. That doesn't change a thing and I'm here to change the world. I'm all about change. That's why, when faced with difficulties, as I currently am, I have to keep on going. After all, failure reminds us of the success we're after. If it was too easy, we would take it for granted. Consequently, Project Change the World will go on despite obstacles ahead and we will be stronger for it. I hope anyone reading this realizes that nothing good in life ever comes easy. It's a great life lesson. So here's the sunshine on this rainy day: I've updated the "Follow Us" Section, the "Blog", and the "Special Features." Please check it out at your own convenience. Have a blessed day, month, and year! And remember running away may be easy but facing your problems takes courage. Be brave. You are.
Hey guys! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer! I actually had a very enjoyable experience this morning mountain biking with kids in need for a local program called, "Trips for Kids Charlotte." Volunteer programs and charities unfortunately don't get a lot of press coverage but they are very much out there. In fact, I already have over 60 listed here: http://www.diigo.com/list/projectchange/organizations. Just know that if you want to help out, it is very much possible. You may only have to do a little searching but it is well worth it. If you ever want recommendations, check out the list linked above, email me, or click on Special Features above for the weekly winners. It's not as hard and time-consuming as one may think (admittedly I did) to become a do-gooder in one's community. Most of the events I do are only an hour or two with great variety. Once again the Hands On Networks are an awesome way to get started as well as Volunteer Match. Both of these resources are nationwide, as well, but you can limit your search to your local area. Therefore, I'm dedicating this month to all the volunteers and organizations that truly do make a difference in our world. You all rock!
