After leaving the one that did not make use of me, I was hoping to volunteer elsewhere, that would not be too far to travel to. This would have been with Mind and I posted the application for volunteering with them, near the end of last week.
I heard from them today, thanking me for applying to be a volunteer. But unfortunately, they have any volunteer vacancies at present that will fit with my availability.
I can’t say I don’t feel disappointed to hear this and upset about this, as I was looking forward to the possibility of helping there. I am not going to apply anywhere else I had in mind, that came second to this one. Instead, I am just going to take this as a blessing in disguise. I am going to concentrate on finishing my final piece of my mental health course, which a lot of work is going into this final piece and I have the other two to courses to over the next year. So more time to focus on them.
Also, I plan to sort out dates for driving lessons, so more flexibility to concentrate on this and free time to arrange more than one lesson a week when it comes to learning to drive. So this is why I think it is a blessing in disguise.
