Make an impact

When you give to the world, you get back a lifetime of love and learning. I firmly believe that we all want—or at least would like to be —part of something that is greater than all of us. This is why I am here. This is why you are here. Oftentimes I get the question, “What can I do?

If questions answered questions, I would reply: “What are you capable of? ” Moreover, what are you interested in doing? That of course is not the answer anyone is looking for, but it serves as a rhetorical reminder of our own personal interest in making a difference. It touches on the assumption that you, like me, all want to do better, not only for ourselves, but the rest of the world.

How I live out my life may not look or feel like how you live out your life and that’s totally cool. We all come from different backgrounds, different cultures, and are all in different places in our lives. Do what works for you where you are in life. If you are looking to get involved in some causes, these are worthy ones that I have had the privilege of helping start or be a part of in some small way. Or perhaps find some of your own that speak to you. Whatever the case, enjoy being the change. ♥ ~ Summer Rayne Oakes
