It has always bothered me that people always make resolutions to do something for themselves…loose weight, work out, stop drinking, stop eating ice cream, etc.
Why can’t people make a resolution for themselves to help others more, volunteer, etc. Why does it always have to be ‘all about me’.
My thought is… make two resolutions… one: loose weight and work out more, two: volunteer more. Or even better, to combine the two… take part in 5k’s or 15k races that benefit cancer causes or environmental causes.
This Sunday I am taking part in a 5k to help raise money for our environmental causes. The race is called the Revolution Run. This takes place in Mission Bay and Fiesta Island. No only am I burning the calories that I need to use up, I am also helping the environment. What a great way to give back and also take for yourself.
I know all of you have already made your resolution this year, but I challenge you to make one more… one that benefits someone else.
