Field Note #143: Clean Water to All


"When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed." - Maya Angelou

As I had some time to reflect on my recent trip to Nepal, I realized just how beautiful life is. I worked alongside many amazing villagers in Dahakhani, as well as fellow volunteers, with the common goal of bringing clean water to all. We did not all speak the same language, we are from opposite sides of the world with very different life experiences, but one thing was the same: we are humans trying to help other humans because of the love in our hearts. I went into this trip hoping I could do my small part of a greater vision in helping others. The lessons I learned and the love I felt were truly life changing. If we love and serve, the world will be a more beautiful place for all. Be grateful for all that fills your life because in the end it is all about your perspective. Namaste.
