Lesson #1: Bestowing Kindness
- the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate.
The greatest lesson I learned volunteering at the Republican Convention is
Sometimes networking is all about bestowing kindness and not about getting anything in return.
- friendly towards the delegates, and the man with the assault rifle
- generously gave of my time helping men and women from out of state feel at home
- considerate of others being so far from the comforts of their home and away from family.
I went into this experience hoping and praying that God would use it to break the chains on my career. A career that has never recovered since initially being laid off 7 years ago. (Yes, I am thankful and blessed to currently be employed.)
However, I did not meet my
- next husband
- my next employer
- another best friend
God simply used my volunteering as a way for me bestow kindness upon a group of strangers. A group of people who were more like family when they left.
