I have a big heart. It is strong and powerful, and at the same time, it is vulnerable. My vulnerability is human kind. I have a passion for people, my family, and my community. If someone asks for help, I will be there. I give my word, and I refuse to break my promises.
I am currently very active in my community. I volunteer at my children’s elementary school, the only homeless shelter in my county, my local United Way, and my church. I spend a few days most weeks of a month in lending a hand and serving the people within my community. I believe that a serving heart will help to strengthen the bond that ties communities together, and I want to be a living example of what I believe.
If I was able to get paid for doing what I love most, I would be able to give up any traditional job where I am not happy, and be able to spend all my time advocating a stronger community through actions of service. I would be able to spend more time at any of the organizations, be able to start up a foundation that partner with local retailers to non-profits that serve my community, and be a mentor and example to the youth.
My big heart would start a chain reaction. I would start small, and with time, become a changing voice within my community, by region, and hopefully my philosophy with flow throughout the world.
