you can see I have had an extensive career volunteering &
helping others and in my time will have earned the respect and
acceptance of my peers. Unfortunately not, It's fine while they
need you but when you are no longer required you will be cast
aside. I know this is not what you wanted to hear but it is sadly
the truth and something I was forced to accept in 2009.
Will I continue to volunteer:
used to believe that the good days made up for the bad ones and
always looked for the good in people but like others I now find
that this is not the case.
think I will and I hope I do but we will just have to see what
One final thought:
real test will come this year. I will have a go and see how it
works out but I don't think I will ever volunteer to the level
I did in the past. I will still have my favorites and will always
have a soft spot for helping children but we will just have to
see how it pans out.
you look around, do you find yourself stood at the top of the
pile with all the riches and fineries of life? If the answer is
no then you are the same as me and about 98% of the country.
And to the People
that shall remain nameless:
factor in that every person in the UK produces about 1000Ibs (450kg)
of rubbish (sh*t) each year and it's a proven fact that sh*t rolls
down hill. Then by now like me you should have figured that you
are going to find yourself in (sh*t) most days of your life!
your life and all that comes with it.
