Serving others makes me smile

By: Peter Brown


What do you usually do when you have free time? Sleeping? Playing online games? If you are thinking of what to do in the coming weekend, why not try to be a volunteer and to serve the needy ones in society?
I have 10 years experience of being a volunteer. You can call me as a 'fan' of serving others as being a volunteer brings me the greatest amount of happiness.
The first time I served others, I was 7-yr-old. I visited a home for elderly. I will never forget how happy the elderly people were when my classmates and I made performances and chatted with them. So impressive!
I participated in services organised by different charitable organizations in my secondary school life. For example I helped OXFAM and the World Wide Fund. These are all very great experience. But the greatest fun of serving others is not just to participate in service programmes.
During my high school time, as I have gained experience of serving others, I tried to organize service programmes by being project leader. I finally realised that the most enjoyable thing of serving others is to organise service programmes to serve those I hope to serve the most, but not just to participate in projects.
University life is very hard to go through as the study is very difficult. But I do not give up my life of serving others as whenever I see those I served smile, I feel that they are happy to be with me and I feel happy to be with them too. They help me understand the meaning of my life and they relieve me from my harsh university life. Sometimes I send them e-cards and they will reply me with e-cards saying that they miss me. How sweet they are!
I will never stop my life of serving others, even after I retire, I would like to go around the world to be a volunteer, to send the message of love, to everywhere, to everyone.
Serving others is not just about making others smile, it is also to make yourself feel happy when you feel their joy. String up and be a volunteer TODAY!
