When life Gives you lemons..
Some times we might be bored with long travelling.
We stay away from home, travelling to the main stream touristy places, click those usual picture with that monument, click some front cam selfies, try to push that building, try to pick up the dome of the beautiful architecture, try so many other trick photography items that are tried and tested by millions of others. And after doing all these things, at the end of the day we might be missing something.
We might be introspective about the trip. What was the purpose of this trip, what have I earned from the trip, I spend all the money and what have I gained from it? Sometimes it is hard to find a purpose of our trips.
So here I have a meaningful suggestion for your next trip ( at least I believe so)
They say ” travel is the only thing you buy makes you richer“. I don’t know who said that. But I have seen plenty of very appealing travel inspiration posters with these words written on them. And it does inspire me all the time.
Well how does travel makes you richer?! Maybe rich memories, rich stories, rich topics for a conversation, rich knowledge about cultures and places…
But I found another way to make travelling a rich experience. Maybe many of you are already doing it. But I have found it recently.
The idea is simple. We travel to some place, we offer our kindness to some random stranger. Make him/her happy.
Yes, do some ‘random acts of kindness’ trip.
Wherever you go, you are sure to find a ‘fighter’ who struggles to make a living, who is less fortunate than us. Many of the things we take for granted are luxuries to others. So why don’t we start helping the less fortunate people?
When life gives lemons to someone, let’s go buy it, make lemonades and distribute to everyone! And let’s make everyone happy.
So let’s go to some place, maybe a one day trip or a weekend trip to some place. Pick someone who you think would become happier with your kindness. Some times even talking to them can make them happy. Other options are buying them a lunch, buying their entire lot they are trying to sell unsuccessfully, gifting them something. It is all up to you to decide, upon your creativity and kindness.
Let’s plan our next trip and go buy some happiness.
It is also possible to mix the previous travel theme, which was fixed budget travel, with this one. Make a fixed budget, altruistic travel! So I am again trying to suggest a travel theme that is not heavy on your pockets.
Imagine, if every other traveler, travels like this and helps people all around the world, how better the world would be to live in! So lets share the love and make our travels, a truly rich experience.
And thus travel is the only thing you buy, that makes you rich, and this time lets buy some happiness too along with it. Lets travel around the world, to make this a better place to live in.
