"Volunteer"
What this word can mean in your life

Thereís something about this word "volunteer" that apparently intrigues me because I seem to do it all the time.

I like to volunteer. But why? Iíve never been able to figure this out. Maybe itís because I secretly like to feel needed and when you do volunteer, that seems to somehow fill that need.

Maybe itís because I like to make people happy and doing this puts me on the spot where I have to do something, just because Iíve committed myself.

Itís definitely not that I just feel obligated but it truly activates me. So itís a challenge as well.

So here we have itÖseveral things that are especially important to me: feeling needed and having a personal commitment, plus having a definite challenge in my life. These things as Iíve already mentioned, are very important. So if you are like this at all, these things will also get you motivated and you may discover a completely new aspect of your life.
