I am sure that I have written about something like this several times before, but more ideas are always coming! More actual pro-active than prayers and thoughts -.- lol
There are ways to help others without you having to spend a dime, or a a really little dime.
- If you want to know more about a subject or learn something, libraries and librarians are great resources to get you started.
- Libraries are full of books and technologies to learn even more about a subject.
- Reading a book can give you a incredible amount of knowledge, about a subject or knowledge!
- Every summer and every Winter I have a clean out of my cupboards and if I don’t fit into something, or haven’t worn it for a long time and it’s still fairly decent. I give it away.
- Many organisations can help set up, so you can volunteer (or get paid) to simply sit with elderly people. Have a conversation and maybe a cup of tea with them. In Western society, we don’t tend to revere our elderly. I am annoyed by the current systems in place to “help” the elderly.
- Give Blood and get a cookie or something other delicious treat after.
- Baking for others. While this one may cost money to buy food to be able to make food, you don’t really need to spend a lot of money, to make a delicious meal for someone who may not be able to cook, for whatever reasons. Sometimes you can create a meal that can last for a few days as well. I’m thinking Soup is always a welcomed meal.
- Even if you don’t have a large social media platform. You can still retweet things. My new Twitter account (a few months old). It STILL getting it out there. There are lot of crowd and justice funders than you can just retweet. Without you having to spend a cent.
I have now turned 30 + 1, but I thought it would be a good opportunity to write about what I learnt in my 20’s as I now head into my 30’s…Scary as!
1. If you are lucky enough to have a good family, this is extremely rare, spend all the family time you can with them.
2. You don’t have to get drunk ALL the time, know your limits, not only will you not throw up but you wont have a hangover the next day!
3. Facebook does not equal best friends for life.
4. Take all the selfie’s you want too! You don’t have to post them on Facebook or Instagram, but if they make you feel good…Go for it!
5. Make time for friends and your romantic relationships.
6. Have at least ONE passionate lover that you do not date and you can be friends with afterwards. (Be safe!)
7. Volunteer or stand up for at least one cause you are completely passionate about!
8. You do not know everything…Listen.
9. Make time for yourself.
10. Not everyone is going to get married, live together and have children in that order and it IS okay not to have children.
11. If you have a passion for your job, or find a job you are passionate about, stick with it and improve at it!
12. If you have children in your 20’s, don’t let the rest of the world babysit and take care of your babies. Take pride in raising your children and don’t let the rest of the world tell you what makes a “good” or “bad” parent. Don’t be ashamed though to ask for help! There’s a lot of willing to help out there!
13. Not everyone is and will be your best friend for life, but you will figure out who your “real” friends are.
14. It’s okay to let go and still care about a person.
15. Do not let bad relationships waste your time or control your life. If you can’t let go…Get Help!
16. I repeat…Facebook does NOT equal best friends for life.
17. Sometimes you just need a cuddle from and with someone or an animal that is warm.
18. Do NOT stop reading! It doesn’t matter what it is, never stop reading!
19. Go to a local festival, convention, concert or to theatre at least one a year!
20. It is completely normal to be in your Twenties (heading towards your Thirty) and have a crush on a Celebrity.
Have a passion that is all your own! Like myself and my Blogging =D
