Salvere Blog: Community

by Salvere Health and Fitness

Community — “the feeling of fellowship with others as a result of sharing a common attitude, interests and goals”

The last few weeks I’ve been reflecting on the things going on in our society that don’t feel quite right. In my processing, I began to really step back and look at what really goes on – outside of the news and media, right in our own back yards. I thought about what really impacted my life over the last several years and realized there’s great power when a group of people come together.

From the girls, coaches, staff and board of directors at Girls on the Run to the wingmen, athletes and families in Athletes Serving Athletes, the students, mentors and steering committee members at LeadershipU and, most recently, the volunteers and kids at Thread – While each organization serves its own mission and purpose, the common thing is the community, passion, commitment and support surrounding each. Add to this amazing family and group of friends.

We truly have the ability to do great things, genuinely care about people, impact and influence change and provide support to those who don’t have it somewhere else. Looking around at the hundreds of people involved in these four small local organizations, we can create communities that give back without expecting in return and want to encourage others to do the best they can with whats important to them (not us!) while helping them when they need to be lifted back up. Each of us can do something to help make our community, whether large or small, a better place to live. Look for opportunities to do something intentionally nice for someone – every day.
