One was Gawad Kalinga’s Home building activity and the second was a Dental Mission.
I was supposed to go home early and rejuvenate (Since I came to work early); but KD asked me to join the medical mission. I was at first not interested, I was tired and really could use some shut eye.
Then I realize, instead of sleeping and making myself fat or worst.. alright I don’t know anything worst than me going fat except probably death by Boredom or being run over by a Pedicab.. Instead I used this time to lend a helping hand. Besides I kind of miss being a nurse; this is the perfect opportunity for me to partly practice my profession.
"If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody."
It was tiring but a very rewarding experience; instead of spending the enitre saturday watching DVD and sleeping. You went into the world and helped out.
Helping people gave me a different kind of high; not like those late night parties or taking prohibited drugs kind of esctacy. it was more of a guilt free high, seeing people specially mothers smile at the fact that thier children will no longer cry in pain, miss a school because of a toothache.
This is the kind of High i want people to experience, a high that i want them to be addicted.
