During times of rapid change, it is natural to contemplate your own ideas about freedom.
What can I say, what can I do, where can I go, how can I make a difference?
These are questions we are all asking ourselves. We tend to think of freedom in terms of individual and personal rights, but there are balances to be struck, such as the responsibilities that come with freedom, including making choices that take the well-being of those who make up our communities and nation into consideration as we assess our own goals and the way we express our freedoms.
All of this can be complicated to wrestle down and it may not always be comfortable. Yet, in chaotic times there is reopening and reassessment going on. People are working together, trying new things, stretching their own definitions of themselves and making clarifying choices. They are seeking out opportunities to connect with others and earn, learn and volunteer with purpose in the evolving new normal. Amava Members are among these seekers.
Here are some inspiring examples we’re seeing:
- People who want to do something meaningful as they earn are joining the fight against coronavirus and applying to be Contact Tracers.
- Virtual volunteering is happening nationwide. People are giving their extra time to participate in women’s health research, lending their voices as advocates for heart health and learning Hands-Only CPR.
- Speaking of learning, you can save money on classes on our site. We have chosen them specifically with the diverse goals and interests of our Members in mind.
Freedom is about deciding what matters to you and who you want to be. The chance to Discover Your Next. We hope you take this opportunity to thoughtfully freestyle your freedom– think about what suits you. We’d be honored to be part of your process.
