I have been trying to figure out my need to help people. It comes in waves where I feel I need to do something and sometimes do something like knitting scarves and donate them. Then the motivation goes away only to come back again.
There are lots of things I want to do but feel lost, stuck, unsure, defeated…at least I’m thinking about helping so that’s better than nothing. Part of what drives me is Sean. That friendship, that connection fuels the desire to help too. He’s not here anymore and doing good things like donating is a way that I can keep honoring him and our friendship. He gave me back my life and the least I could do is acknowledge it by honoring him in small ways. He's not around to help other people so maybe I can on his behalf…on our behalf.
Sean was in my life for about a year and he most definitely left a mark. A mark that has been burning bright since he died 22 years ago. No one has had an impact on my life like Sean. It was certainly life changing and one I’m glad I went through with him.
I'm sure I'll find a project or group to help out. It stands to reason that part of my code is whether or not the cause is something Sean would have approved of if he was still here. A cause that speaks to both of us.
I hope all of you find a cause of your own and that it brings you joy. Today's video is one I found by accident and it's pretty cool.
