Today, I appreciate human happiness.
We all have that special passion in life that makes us happy. Maybe it’s making new friends, teaching, or volunteering – whatever your passion is, you try to pursue it.
In every Girls Inc. program that I have observed I’ve heard or seen the passions of young girls throughout greater Indianapolis. Whether they are six years-old or 14, there is always a unique passion brought out in a Girls Inc. program.
Every girl’s passion is different:
At a Lunch Bunch program at Challenge Foundation Academy, one girl explained that playing basketball for her school team has turned into a passion to become a part of the Indiana Fever.
In writing a song for a Redefining Beauty program, one girl at Washington Irving (IPS 14) sparked her passion for writing poems and lyrics.
In a “Step to the Line” activity in Work It Out at William McKinley (IPS 39), another girl learned that she is not alone in leaving other’s out at recess and was inspired to treat other’s as she would want to be treated.
But every girl appreciates the happiness that her passion brings her:
“Today, I appreciated just being able to volunteer and spend time with you ladies.”
“Today, I appreciated when I was able to express myself in my journal.”
“Today, I appreciated when I learned that we’re really all the same, we all want a friend.”
Our passions may change as we journey through various stages of our life, but each passion brings us happiness. As the holiday season approaches (way too quickly) I challenge you to find and live out the passion that brings you happiness. Pursuing your passion inspires girls to do the same.
