Small Groups Versus Large Groups

Any activist should be leading with three people or more.

Small Groups Versus Large Groups

When a small group of a non-profit organization gets together, they're most likely officers taking one or more chances to gather up members and move forward to fundraisers. While coming up with the group's mission statement, the president might be ahead of the local news to know enough about what to say or do. A treasurer may keep the group updated with a budget listing of events, an establishing office, and transportation if needed. An office manager (a more proactive title than vice president) runs the positive vibes and messages to keep the group together. A secretary may assist the office manager with the meeting minutes in which I believe anybody can do this while being openly suggestive with something to write on (a notepad or a laptop). An advocate could be advertising events online or in-person because they would know and count on somebody to sponsor any group moving forward.

Small Groups

I've attended meetings that fill the capacity up to five people. I'd prefer that as a writing group, but you can work with those who interest your skills only after one meeting of good fun. I've also believed in "three is a crowd," so it sounds cool to be called a trio at times. With small groups, I came to realized that it's easy to break the ice with a nice board game or video game over a discussion. So, I'm obligated enough to lead a support group with fun choices with a board game or carpooling events.

Large Groups

I've attended meetings that fill the capacity up to twenty people. I wouldn't raise expectations of the first meeting having a lot of people coming out for a public discussion, but taking a vote in person like any committee or community organization should be a guarantee. I'm not asking determining twenty people for an audience at an open mic because it's not every day everybody wants to leave their home when working full-time. A monthly Sunday afternoon worked out with me to review a few notes and public events to plan in my own attendance- but I can invite others if they press "interested" more in Facebook events made to be public and in-person.

As I'm in deep respects of confidentiality, I've attended support groups for school and in discretional support of a few family members. Collaboration for fun and skillful events takes time for growing groups- even for the smallest local organizations still looking for an office secretary because a student gets so busy with class. Even when you're out of college and living independently with a full-time job, leading a group just might drive you into all sociable acceptance.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

On Sunday Morning

Breaking Free

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
