Monday Quotable

Today is the national holiday commemorating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King whose birthday was January 15. In recent years, it has become a day of service rather than just a day off from work. I am a big proponent of volunteering/serving others. It got me out of my selfish pity party when my life was uprooted back in 2009 and I've been sticking to it ever since. So, today, if you're feeling down, uninspired, inadequate or even just bored, get up and give back. It can be something as small as paying for someone's coffee or as big as helping build someone a new house (through agencies like Habitat for Humanity). No matter what you do, I guarantee it will give your spirit and the spirit of the people you help a big lift. If you're looking for a project to do, check out the MLK Day of Service site. Happy Monday!
