Hope to visit there again.
Enjoy the "new"
by Temple Wynne
What do we do with a year that is new? Is adjusting to writing a new date for the year the most that we can expect from ourselves? I don’t think so….. 2018 holds much promise - places to go, people to see, and loads of new directions to consider. What new will you do?...
For many people, new volunteer opportunities within our own communities await. For adults and teens of all ages, volunteerism gets us out of our tiny personal worlds for a chance to make a difference to others. In Wimberley, the EmilyAnn, the Village Store, Crisis Bread Basket, and WAG are but a few of the great local options that offer opportunity for service. For the many who are already committed volunteers, simply shifting gears from one role to a different one within an organization can excite our molecules, presenting fresh challenges and availing new skills. Or volunteering with an entirely different group might spice up the year. Is a new school, language or hobby in the offing? Will you leap outside of your comfort zone with a brave new adventure (I did that this year, and am kicking myself for waiting so long)! Of course 2018 brings with it congressional elections that may engage some of us in grassroots efforts toward electing candidates of our choice. Engaging in civil discourse with folks of differing opinions can be a stimulating and rewarding activity for some. The possibilities are truly endless! Life offers so much, and time passes way too quickly. Enjoying each day is a pretty lofty goal, but one worth attempting!
We at River House thank you for making 2017 a wonderful year; we appreciate you! Here’s wishing you the joys, delights and surprises that come with “the new”!
Happy New Year!
