Giving back is about learning and always trying to have gratitude for the small things that happen to us on a daily basis. Learning new activities with friends, family and community will always be a part of my job. Learning from our elders, really listening and understanding the change can be good. Honouring the past is okay but living in the past is not. Having fun is the key.
