I'm joining Service Space because ... Losing my sense of "self" through service is what inspires me to dig deeper and serve more. The people in this space, through their incredible acts of service, are a huge source of inspiration for my own service journey!
A good day to me is when ... I can touch someone's life, in some small way, and make them smile from within :)
My hero in life is ...All the people around the world doing small acts of goodness, right where they are right now. Because ultimately, it is these small acts that together will change the world.
My favorite book is ...Journey books like Siddhartha and Tuesdays with Morrie, Books on raising mindful children like Raising Happiness and books about going within like The Power of Now
One thing I'm grateful for is ... When I can tap into that place, deep inside of me, from which I can do things with a pure heart.
