In all of the above I have not received any accolades, nobel prizes, certificates, buildings dedicated to me, fame nor fortune - so there is nothing physical for me to show for all my doings.
So why do I bother? Well for me it isnt in the 'recognition' that gives me joy and peace, it is in the knowing that somewhere sometime someone said 'Thank you' or 'I appreciate it' that brings on the motivation to carry on.
There is no sense in running after money or fame if by doing so you break, use, hurt or harm someone in some way. For surely as the sun will rise tomorrow, the road ahead will be a rocky one.
Today and every day I aim to make a difference to someone out there.
