Over the last few weeks, we have been touched by the untimely passing of several people who have encouraged us to live in bold and adventurous ways.
While as shocking as this was, I would like to say that regardless of what is going on, no matter how desolate your heart may feel at times, you are never truly alone.
One of the most valuable lessons my coach Judy Goodman CPC, CSRC, CRC has taught me is if you feel lonely and need a friend, be a friend to someone. If you are sad and need comforting, comfort someone in need. When we give away what we are looking to obtain in our lives, it shows up in profound ways.
One great resource to find volunteer opportunities in your area is Volunteer Match. If you are looking to connect with people in your area or for a cause that is close to your heart, this is the place for you!

As part of the Moments with Marianne community, you can email your prayer requests to Marianne@MariannePestana.com. This is a confidential and private resource and your requests will be added to my morning meditations.
It’s in caring for one another that despair diminishes.
