For the first time that I can remember, I seem to be questioning how I spend my time. I'm finding myself watching terrible TV (I think this feeling was sparked with the return of Real Housewives of Orange County - I feel a little shame admitting that I've watched every season), getting antsy and just needing to fill a void a little bit. I've always had a full plate, but now I'm finding it about 75% full. Don't get me wrong, I love that I'm not stressed out and overloaded, but, well, I've only got one life. I need to make the most of it.
I've also recognized that for the first time in my life I'm not giving back in any way. Sure, I put money in the collection plate at church every week and I volunteer every once in awhile, but I don't feel like I'm really doing that much for the greater good. I didn't realize how much I valued my work with philanthropic events when I lived in Atlanta and how much I feel like that same opportunity hasn't presented itself here in Indy.
So, I need your suggestions. Have you had a regular, on-going volunteer experience that you've loved? I'd love to find something that is 4-5 hours per month and preferably on weeknights.
I feel like that was kind of heavy. I'll work on something less heavy later this week!
