What makes you feel useful?

After I retired with a disability after years in a human services job I felt pretty useless. I struggled with accepting my disability. I wanted to be useful. So I decided to make my mission in life helping others. Now I'm busy with volunteering and actually feeling swamped. But I know I'm being useful and that feels good. What do you do that gives you that feeling of being useful without feeling used?

I think if you get busy in an environment that makes you happy you will be that way. Dont mope about what you cant do find what you can.
