How Are You Paying It Forward?

At the beginning of the year I was searching for somewhere to apply my volunteer efforts for 2013.  I was fortunate to find the Veterans Association of North County (VANC) Career Transition Assistance Program (CTAP).  Every month there is a different class that meets twice a week on Monday and Wednesday.  I volunteer on Monday nights teaching classes and acting as a coach.  We help service men and service woman transitioning from military service into the civilian world.  It is really really satisfying to help these folks have a more successful journey, especially after they have served our country.

I participated in the attached video to help attract and recruit more coaches into the program.  I thought you might enjoy seeing it.  I hope it inspires you to find somewhere to volunteer and help others on their journey.  Full the risk of exposing my vanity.....I think some of the shots of me are quite good and others are just awful.....either way I hope it brings a smile to your face!

My volunteer energy is an important part of my healthy journey.  It provides perspective, it provides a strong sense of satisfaction and it keeps me grounded with the abundance in my life. 

Desire to give back to those who have given us so much.  Dedication to helping others.  Discipline to keep it on my calendar.
