Daddy Diary Mackay – August 2017
So, we’re more than half way through the year and it’s time for your mid-year resolutions – yes, that’s a thing!
I always feel that it gets to this point of the year and we’re all rubbing our eyes, in shock that it’s closer to next Christmas than the last. And, I often also then realise that I haven’t really kept up my New Year’s Resolution… or even started it. So, I like to give myself another chance, and you should to.
If you listen to me in the mornings or follow me on social media, you’ll know that I’m a big advocate of helping, supporting and volunteering. I have many causes close to my heart that I’ll do crazy things to raise money for (like sliding in a pool filled with ice), I donate plasma and I promote a number of deserving fundraisers.
Now, I’m not telling you all this for a pat on the back, I’m hoping to inspire all of you to make a mid-year resolution to improve someone else’s life.
Why not choose to volunteer at your local community organisation, give blood, put your body through a crazy challenge for charity or offer your skills for free? Trust me, after the blood, sweat and tears, it’s always worth it to see the impact that such a small act can make in the lives of those less fortunate.
And, don’t get me wrong, as much as I love to know that you’re helping others, I also (secretly!) get a little sense of satisfaction when I see pictures of you all going through the (sometimes ridiculous) things you do to complete your challenge or charity work. And that’s not because I’m an awful person (although some would debate that!), it’s because I’ve been there too and I know the feeling!
So, that said, I would love for you to post pictures of you doing your thing on the PakMag Mackay Facebook page – don’t forget to tag me so I see them!
Until next month, have fun and find your charitable side.
