From those who've made it we keep hearing "follow your passion", "live to inspire", "be the change that you want to see" and a lot of other things that would just make you gag if you saw it printed in a shirt.
I find myself relevant and satisfied in where I am and what I do. Yet I still am longing for the freedom to widen my circle of influence, to find a venue to inspire others that are currently not within grasp, to try and make a difference for those who do not work for or with me.
A question that comes up, specifically in third world states - there are very few opportunities, too little in the manner of resources, and too much of apathy. People desperately trying to survive will ensure food before existentialism. Exist first, philosophy is for a full stomach.
But what I've found in the course of my life is that people will still listen. There are still those who search for some more even in the middle of hopelessness. That there might be a way to elevate oneself against the tides of a life chained to poverty.
In that context I'll continue to try. To find those who'll listen. And continue to teach.
