Your life, my life and the one who is standing in the streets hoping to get some alms. All of us are struggling to do their thing – food, shelter and the innate desire to accomplish something.
Without foods you can’t survive and thus the girl in the street needs those alms desperately. Without shelter you can’t survive longer – you need the safety, many of us struggling to have a permanent home. And those who have the basic things in place look to some ways to matter. In this world, maybe to parents or a few people whose lives you can touch.
By doing something – not sure what. Because there is too much noise and you judge every other advice.
So here is simple exercise. Teaching someone a skill is a way to matter. So when I learnt swimming – I felt I could do better. So here am I writing about my experiences of swimming and things which unraveled in between.
You can start by simply sharing your story which has a learning nugget. Maybe someone will get inspired. Regardless, you don’t stop. Keep swimming and keep trying to matter.
