On Facebook today I noticed a person I’m connected to mention that he’s still got the post Holiday blues and was wondering aloud how he could defeat them. I answered that he might find some success by volunteering his time with an organization help the needy, especially children.
I need to look to do this too at some point. Soon. Even if it’s for one weekend afternoon a month.
All too often we encourage young people to do such things…because it will “be good for them”. I’ve always found that, while that statement is true, is also a cop-out. It serves as an excuse to pass off charitable work on others who may be more compilable.
I wonder if I’ll cop-out here. I hope I don’t.
