I've been at a crossroads recently in life at age 29 and with 30 creeping up I feel that my life is the same cycle every day. I get up, head to work, leave the office head home and then sleep. All of this is on repeat. On Saturday, I was at lunch with my mom and I was telling her how I want to do so much with my life. To help people, put some of my talents to use and make this world a better place. I at least want to try and make some type of difference. My mom made a very valid point to me that day, she said that she knows I am that person who always does something, I was born with that passion to help in any way I can. I am the person that puts it all back together. She reminded me of when I was in college I would put on a yearly charity concert event with musicians, comedians, artisits,storytellers and so much more. So what happened to that girl who would plan a yearly event at a university for 7,000 students? What happened to me? Simply put, life took over. The real world they call it. It totally engulfs you into "its" world of making a career and living. Sadly, I don't like that too much. I mean, let's face it yes we all have to have a career, make a living and we are so blessed with it. However, do I really want to have my life be on repeat? No. I don't. I want to do something to make it a better one. I get up like always, work at a place that I adore but also do something to help others. All weekend I was realying with what can I do ? How can I go about this? Who would be in this with me?
I thought a charity some type of non profit org. would be perfect. Now who would be in this with me?
I thought of only one person- Sara. A 21 year old, college student who wants to save the world one step at a time. She's as passionate as an enrique ingleases music video and would be a perfect partner.
Last night, I BBM'd her and tossed out the idea to her and she accepted with such thrill and excitement than a 5 year old who saw Yo Gaba Gaba. There you have it guys, I am co creating a charity for women and children who are in need of getting back on their feet. Women who need empowerment and their children who need guidance. Above all they need someone who stands by them, beleieves in them and send lots of love to them. We have come up with the idea for a logo design being 2 hearts linked together. And something to the effect of Linked Hearts Project. By the way, if you have a better idea for a name in regards to hearts let me know! Ha ha. This is just in its infant stages and I mean infant. If anyone has any advice or input please let me know. This is all new to me and Sara.
Much love to you all!
