Amb. Mayokun Adebimpe
I’ve always loved a big family though this also comes with its disadvantages. However, it’s not that my family size is small (or maybe it is). In fact, I grew up having some of my cousins, uncles and aunts staying for some time. Some stayed as long as I could remember, while some did come on an occasional visit. Nonetheless, I was used to having people around.
Over the years, I have discovered another fun way to gain a new family. Not only gaining a new family but also getting incorporated in a large one. The fastest way is through volunteering. Especially if you have a volunteerism spirit, it makes it easier and more fun for you.
There are lots of organizations whose vision and mission align with yours; you only need to search. Volunteering most times gives you a sense of belonging. It is a platform for you to meet new people from different walks of life.
Furthermore, you get to work and collaborate with strangers-turned-family. What’s more, this also comes with another benefit—satisfaction and maybe fulfillment, which gives you happiness. If you genuinely have a passion for impacting your community and your society at large, then you will definitely get satisfied through volunteering.
Let us look at another value you will be gaining apart from a new big family. Volunteering helps your mental health a lot. It helps relieve your mental stress (that might have built up during your daily activities). Though, it sometimes comes with its stress. However, it enables you to feel at peace within.
In case you wonder what it feels like to be an Ambassador at Peacepace Initiative, it is satisfaction and happiness. Peacepace is a big family, ever-expanding and growing to make this world a better place. Also, Peacepace Initiative reassures us that peace is attainable if all of us will work towards it.
