Whether or not you believe in karma, it sure feels good to help someone in need, or at least volunteer to help. So I’ve started to think that gratitude should really work in reverse. We should be grateful to the people we help, for giving us the opportunity to accumulate good karma and find satisfaction in our deeds. Imagine if everyone was self-sufficient and never in need of help. That would mean no ‘satisfaction’, no good points, nothing to negate the bad karma. Remember that the next time you’re helping somebody. Reverse gratitude. Help and be grateful.
Welcome to my blog, The Shooting Star. I’ve been called a storyteller, writer, photographer, digital nomad, “sustainability influencer,” social entrepreneur, solo traveller, vegan, sustainable tourism consultant and environmentalist. But in my heart, I’m just a girl who believes that travel – if done right – has the power to change us and the world we live in.
