Assets In Action: Practice service to others

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

Service to others is a perfect asset for the week. This week, try and think of a young person that you know that does great things in the community.
During this week of Thanksgiving, drop them a short note and thank them for the work that they do.
Do you need a better idea? You can nominate youth or adults for the Community Assets Award. The nomination process kicks off this week and goes until Dec. 17.
There are so many youth that do great things and are never acknowledged for their efforts.
I only dabble in the cyber world of Facebook, but I notice a lot of people taking the 30 days of November to announce their gratitude for something each day, this month.
They say that you have to do something for 30 days in a row to make it a habit, so they are giving it a try.
When you focus on the good things, you pay attention to them more often.
How many of us rush around and never take the time to see the little things that make each day worth rolling out of bed in the morning?
I hope you will take a minute to send me an email, Facebook post (AssetsInAction) or Tweet (#AssetsInAction) about what you are thankful for today, this month — or even this year.
