One of my favorite activities of life is reading books. When I don’t read books, I like to read people. People inspire, humans motivate one another in unique, unfathomable ways, and that’s the beauty of our daily interactions, our connections and disconnections. Getting out from your comfort zone can be frustrating, but going out there and meeting people, can be the jackpot of your life, because you never know who you will meet and where that newly formed relationship can take you.
“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.”
