You are a part of and belong to the community now it is time you be accepted. There is no need to go knocking on doors, so to speak, but a helpful hand in the community keeps it strong and prosperous. When it comes to lending a hand in the community make it one of your rules and a part of your routine. This builds and strengthens relationships within the community. Find ways to improve the community you reside in. Your goal in your community is to be a part of society's every day normalcy, to let it be known you wish to be a part of it and that you are willing to pitch in where you can but you must be physically willing to get involved. If you are needed to do something don't send the paper boy. You were summoned for a reason. Invest your time and energy wisely. Use common sense, professionalism and courtesy while helping others. Enjoy and allow the community to show you what a community has to offer and is all about. Do not go in trying to change things unless it is for the better and agreed upon by the community members. Always be glad, thankful and grateful you have the ability and freedom to assist your neighbors. Your commitment to stay busy and out of trouble will be determined by your will and mindset. If you need to immerse yourself with something to do all the time because you do not trust yourself to remain trouble free then, by all means...stay busy. Your freedom counts on it. If this is not the case it still can give you more flexibility and sincerity while helping your community. When you are willing to be courteous, kind, supportive, open your heart and lend an ear then, you know you belong to a community, especially when the community returns the same courteousness you display. Reap what you sew.
