Day 18 came and went, and I didn't think I'd given anything, when I remembered all the smiles I'd shared with people at the grocery store. I think that's a give - the gift of community and laughter.
Day 19 brought the opportunity for me to give a bunch of job leads to two women in a program I've created with a fellow coach called The Results Club. We're helping job-seekers by teaching classes on resumes, interviewing, networking, social media, etc. The program's almost over, but I've connected to a great group of participants and will continue to help them in their searches.
Day 20 - Today was my first day volunteering at the animal shelter. I cleaned cages, changed litter boxes, replenished food and water bowls, and swept floors. Oh, and got the gift of scratching a few cats behind the ears!
