It's tax day, April 15th. I am thankful that I am 100% complete with taxes for this year! Spring is officially here - Passover and Easter are upon us. Spring renewal is in the air. It's also one of my favorite times of year: RUMMAGE!
2011 was my year of discovery, looking for my next opportunity. I spent time volunteering for numerous organizations until I found the Visiting Nurse Association of Somerset Hills and their famous rummage sale! I had attended in the past and knew it was fun but I had no idea the impact it would have on my life.
In Fall 2011, Mom, Dad and I sign up. It's now Spring 2014 and I am the only one still 'rummaging'. It's a lot of work twice a year and it fills my heart with great joy! I love every minute of it! Rummage clothes/books/items are magical!
When working with clients individually or in workshops, I often ask about volunteer work. It's a great way to give back and to bring joy into your life, while testing out a new goal or passion. If you love animals, volunteer at the local animal shelter. If you love to cook, volunteer at a soup kitchen or shelter. If you love to treasure hunt and shop, volunteer at a rummage sale! You get the idea - explore!
When you are doing what you love, your path rises to meet you. The Universe sends you signs and affirmations. You meet interesting people. My "Rummage Sisters" are some of my greatest cheerleaders on this part of my journey!
Find your cause! Donate your time. Fill your heart!
Peace, Love and Sparks! Deb
