Episode 10: Happy But Not Satisfied with Nate Jenkins
Feliz per no satisfecho, Happy but never satisfied. This Is an expression Nate Jenkins picked up while spending the last 2 years in Costa Rica. Serving a humanitarian mission after spending a year in college, Nathan experienced a life as he has never known. Growing as he has ever grown and learning more than he has ever learned. Not just a new language, but culture and heritage, people. Nathan took advantage of an opportunity to have an extraordinary experience. Serving and being served by people in absolute poverty gave Nathan greater respect for all that we enjoy in this country. Only through experiences like this can we get a better perspective and appreciation for all that we are blessed with. Learning how to be happy but not satisfied. Grateful for what we have but not content with who we are. This promotes humble growth. As Nathan served the people of Costa Rica, he also learned that serving his companions and leaders was an important aspect as well. Being humble and empathetic, Nathan learned that his service reached much farther than just the strangers he met on the street. His work left an impact that will be felt for years to come. Affecting family for generations. Making a difference, one person at a time.
You know, Many complain that millennials today are lost, buried in their phones, and destined to a life of video games in their parent’s basement. I think Nathan will demonstrate this is clearly not the case, and that our future is in good hands with young men and women like him. I hope you enjoy my most recent conversation with Nate Jenkins.
