You’re first in line to help raise funds to help others, now take time and help fund yourself

Fundraising is a big part of who you are.  You like to help people in need when you have free time to spare.  You like to take the hands on approach to fund raising.  You’re often seen at the forefront with a hammer when it comes to helping build a home for someone who needs one.  Whether it’s baking delicious goodies to sell at a fundraiser to help send your local school’s French class to Paris, or joining in a charity walk to help raise funds to show your support for Multiple Sclerosis research; you spend your time doing what you can for others.

That’s great that there are people like you that help those in need, and bring causes to light.  People like you really make a difference in the lives of others one way or another as you choose to show your support.  If it wasn’t for you, we’d be down a person in the society who helps make life a little brighter for others and we don’t want to lose that.

How about yourself?  You keep yourself so busy in lending a helping hand to others, you’ve put yourself on the backburner which is respectable, but you have to take care of your own needs and causes.  Working full time and spending all your free time helping others is to be applauded most definitely, but don’t forget to take care of you own situations.  Your own needs.  Take a little time for you.  Do something that you’ve always wanted to do for yourself, such as getting into some gardening around the house, taking a weekend trip to a wine tasting festival, or even investing in one of those fun looking trampolines for exercise.  Yeah…, that’s it…, for exercise.  It looks like so much fun though and exercise isn’t supposed to be fun.  Well, find more info at this page if it tickles your fancy.

Take time to do a fundraiser for yourself.  Buy yourself something nice as a treat for all the time you’ve been putting out to make sure others get what they need.  Take up a hobby that you’ve always wanted to learn about but never made time to.  It doesn’t have to be extravagant, it could be as simple as picking up a book and having an evening with a glass of the wine you bought at the festival you went to and have a good read.  In order to take time to take care of others, you have to remember to take care of yourself as well.

Don’t worry, it’s okay to take some time for yourself.  Look at is as refueling so that when the next cause comes around that you want to jump in and help out, you’re feeling refreshed by having done something for yourself for once.  Add yourself to your calendar and take a day to spend on you.  There’s always a charity or cause that will be around for you to help.  So take time to take care of your own charity.  Yourself.  Refresh and refuel then get back to it.
