I have been getting involved recently with the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap initiative. It is a great group that collects data and information and puts it to use to help communities during a disaster and to prepare and recover as well. I sing thig groups praises.
Also, I recommend learning more about how to map on the OpenStreetMap software. It is fully community and local driven with people in those communities doing a lot of the coordination and collection. Keep in mind OpenStreetMap is a worldwide community. They have folks in so many countries around the world and projects from many places that really need the help.

Congratulation to the World Food Programme for the winning of the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize. I knew a little about the program but recently have been looking at it more closes and with a different set of eyes. It is fascinating what they do and how they do it. I am really supportive of them now.

I want to share a insight about a lesson I learned that will hopefully help you. Take a break from social media!
I was so social media heavy that I was not exploring and learning about me. It was actually starting to effect me in different ways. Lesson leaned take care of #1!
Do not be afraid to learn and explore. I learned that and it is so helping me. I look at art virtually now because of COVID. I write how it makes me feel.
Also, I was on social media so much that I was not training in my professional life or exploring what my hobby interests might be. Volunteering is awesome! Helping others and it really does brings a smile to your face! It is a real feeling.
I say all this because I want to explain that health and wellness for me is now a top priority. In my opinion self-care should a top priority for everyone.
