Helping People to Help People
Welcome to YMCA Care! Here is a place where you can read all about how people can get together and help one another in many ways to enrich and improve their lives in a variety of areas. In short it is all about helping people to help people.
It may not always necessarily be about teamwork. But it is all about how one person or more can help another to lift themselves up out of a rut or solve a problem that is preventing their ascention to the place they deserve to occupy in life.
No one really wants to live alone in sadness and in poverty. This is not the correct way to be. Instead, we should all strive to be better than we currently are. We should push ourselves to set and then to reach new goals and make achievement our mantra. This is because when we have a reason to do something, we will do it.
The Reason To Live
There are plenty of people out there who have become so disillusioned with life that they are on the brink of losing the will to live. All aspects of life suffer, from their state of health to their financial situation and to their relationships.
For them, it is not simply a case of telling them that they can regain that will and strive for a better life. They will not believe it is possible, no matter how good the advertising happens to be. Instead, the only way is to show them with real life examples.
The only way anyone can show another person what is possible in this life is by doing it right in front of their eyes. While it may not always be correct to trust the "seeing is believing" viewpoint, the majority of people still accept this as absolute truth. It is only by showing them that anyone can rise out of the place that they are and be one going into a better place that they will come to believe it is possible.
Belief is a powerful emotion that is akin to faith. Not necessarily faith in a religious sense, but faith in one's own ability to carve out a life for themselves that could not possibly happen if they left it to someone else to do for them. Great thinkers of all ages have known this great truth!
It does no one any good sitting around watching the television all day and little else besides. The saying: "If you want something done, you have to do it yourself" is basically correct, because if you really want to change your life and make something great happen, it is up to you to make it happen!
Games and Fun
A big side of enjoying life is simply to be able to play family games with the whole family around and getting down to basics without the need for computers, smart phones, tablets and the like. Old fashioned board games like checkers, ludo, snakes and ladders and all the other simply yet enjoyable fun games are still around and you can still get a great deal of satisfaction from playing them!
The great part about being able to get together to have some harmless fun is getting out of the house and into the fresh air to enjoy outdoor learning pursuits. It's all about getting back to nature and being in tune with the world around us. Life truly is an incredible journey and the more you put into it, the more you'll get out of it for sure.
There is a big part of life that is given over to being entertained in one way or another. It's out way of letting our hair down and enjoying ourselves during those times when we are not working or looking after a family. For most modern families, that usually means sitting in front of the TV set watching shows.
That's fine if it's all you have the time for, but there are also many other ways of getting the entertainment we all need to round out our lives and make them more enjoyable overall. These include getting together with friends for informal gatherings to talk, play games or go out together to watch shows, see musical performances, go see a movie or watch a popular sporting event, for example.
Entertainment is a big part of life and it's included here in it's own section of the site.
