Driven to make a difference!

I just might  be insane... in the good way of course (no disrespect to those with sincere issues ~ I do understand that mental health issues are an important issue in the world and affect many).

However, since I have recently accepted a position with Habitat for Humanity of Eastern CT, I think I might have a screw loose.

I have been an exceptionally hard worker my entire life - tried my best - always went above the call of duty -  and I did it for my self satisfaction, and because I wanted to make a difference in the world.

Luckily, I was rewarded for my efforts along the way. I always paid back and donated a lot, because I could and it was the right thing to do.

With all those years of hard work - and rewards - I was still not really prepared for working for Habitat. WOW! These folks, including me, work harder and for less than anyone I have ever met in my over half century on Planet Earth. And those are the staff. Volunteers work to the max - and we all know volunteers do it for nothing, except for the chance to pay it forward.

So, every night when I get home exhausted, bruised, feeling inadequate in reaching my daily goals - I will look at that big picture. If I can help one person, or family, before my days on Planet Earth are through, then I will have the greatest satisfaction ever!

I am a Putnamaniac that is driven to make a difference!
