There is a marked difference between charity works and palliative care work. I believe in the latter. Charity works falls short with the real human touch. Charity work is a do-gooder situation, but you do not get the Feel good feeling good return in your investment. Palliative care goes beyond monetary contributions to charitable organization. Palliative care is very personal, almost always a one on one situation, or many to one situation, unlike charity work is a situation of one to many. Recipients are faceless when you contribute to charities. Hence doing palliative care gives you an all time high of Feel good feeling good for your charge and for yourself. For yourself mostly.
It is all about the purpose of life. If you have still not found your purpose in life, it is so because you had not bothered to know yourself, nor ask yourself this question. Don’t worry you are not alone. There are always more wanderers than settlers. Your time will come to settle down. You will come to some realization and/or even your calling at one point of your lifetime. There are many books on this subject, mostly religiously themed and religiously biased. Nothing wrong with that. Only that we should be able accept that there are no boundaries in one’s life sphere. I recommend Rick Warren’s bestseller The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth am I here for? The author is one of the 100 most influential people in the world. This book is one of the best books I have ever read in management. It is more than a self help/self motivation book. And I did not give a care that the book is religiously biased. This is so only because the author happens to be a serving church pastor. Look at it from any angle, his thoughts are the truth of the matter.
Come join us to give care in any which way you can. Experience the Feel good feeling good factor. Be purpose driven. It is happily contagious.
