Word of the Week – Volunteer

I have started doing some volunteer works few weeks ago and I am in love with it.

I start with how much I miss travelling using the train. When I frist rode it to go to work I felt elated and happy. Independent even if my money to ride that train is from my husband. I also love the people and ambiance at work. No competition and the vibe is just easy and yet they are efficient. I am not saying this just to suck up, no. I am saying this because I have been in so many jobs where its not nice.

But I am having a problem with transportation. I can only volunteer 2 hours a week and I am always running in late in picking up my son from his pre-school. I tried working it out (with husband's help) by arranging some more time with his pre-school. What we did before when i took some course. But his school is full at the moment and cant take extra kid. And I dont have anyone here to ask for help. We are alone.

All in all I havent seen the volunteer works for 2 weeks cuz I cant work something out. I miss it. I miss being feeling a wee bit powerful & confident. And I am so sad because they might be letting me go now. Or worst I need to let them go.

Been thinking on how it could work out for the 2 weeks now so it is my wotw > VOLUNTEER.

    What a shame you have missed your volunteering for the past two weeks. It seems like something you are enjoying so much. It is nice to do something that makes you happy and proud. Have you thought of asking another one of the mums at pre-school to have your little one for an hour on that day each week, and you could have her little one on another day. Mel #WotW
