My birthday is on February 20, five days after Valentine's Day, but something more important than my birthday (which I am most lucky to have this year) is National Mentoring Month going on right now, in January!
Below is a link describing January as National Mentoring Month! If you have not read "Mentoring Power" or its secret sister publication, "Reflections & Connections: Personal Journeys Through the Life Sciences," I suggest reading them NOW!
Do you want to make a difference, then go out and mentor someone or write for this blog. Have you worked with your children, tutored a child, volunteered as a sports leader, these are all examples of mentoring.
Since I had my unfortunate and unexpected experience, I am limited to walking around the track at our local high school for one mile, this is 10-11 circles around depending on whether I walk in the inner or outer areas. I watch the coaches, some of which I am convinced are volunteers after school working with kids. It is incredible. I was a tutor once and maybe that is my calling, I am not sure yet, but I miss my kids from k-12 that I worked with for 10 years part-time from my full time duties wherever. The kids filled a void in my life. I miss the kids I taught.
If you feel the same as I do and can make the time mentor while you can and do not forget to get your copy of "Reflections & Connections"
