When you decide to step outside your comfort zone and actively plan on DOING something, it will be a very liberating feeling. Reach out to your friends, family and neighbors to listen to their concerns, fears and needs. Within this close group, you will find opportunity to engage yourself.
Getting involved is easier than you may think. Look in your local newspaper or contact the Chamber of Commerce for organizations who cater to community outreach. In this list will be an organization or cause that resonates with you personally.
