Are you bored? Perhaps all you need to boot your boredom is a creative way to give back to your community. Have you ever thought about mentoring?
A mentor is a person who advises, trains or shares her knowledge with someone younger, regarding her career or life path. In other words, a mentor is a role model. As a seasoned, mature woman, you have plenty of life experiences to share with others. And your guidance and support are sure to be welcomed, valued and appreciated.
YOU, offering your expertise! Doesn’t that sound exciting? Assuming you’ll want to take advantage of this opportunity, your first step is to decide which of your skills and strengths will be most beneficial to others. I know that’s a tough call, because you have tons of talent, right? So begin by considering what you would truly enjoy blessing your community members with.
Mentoring presents many lifelong benefits to you and to others. It can provide an opportunity to elevate someone else’s life, but the greatest reward will be your own satisfaction: a unique way to showcase your abilities, a chance to develop meaningful relationships, a reason to expand your understanding in specific areas of proficiency, an excuse to practice your interpersonal skills, and an opportunity for self reflection. These important advantages will help you become your best self.
Being of service to others adds meaning and purpose to your life. Illuminate your experience and make it available to your community.
Don’t think for one minute that you are not worthy of mentoring others! You are just what your community has been looking for! Put your life experiences to work—volunteer your time now!
How will sharing your expertise with others make you feel? Set a loving intention for yourself and schedule a day this week to begin exploring mentoring opportunities in your area. Take a deep, cleansing breath. Now close your eyes and visualize how this lifestyle change can prepare you for your amazing second half.
