Wow. It’s been almost exactly 3 years since I last posted on this blog! Since that time, I have continued to live in Peru. Built a successful solar light distribution program, and gotten lights to over 75,000 people!
I’ve been recognized with several honors and awards, and most recently, been asked to do a TED talk. My life has changed so much in the 4 years that I’ve been living here in Peru. Not only have I been able to give of myself, my time and my knowledge, but I have LEARNED an awful lot. And so it is that I am on to my next chapter….
I have come to realize that in this world – we are people. We are all just people. And we all have a lot to share. And so often, we get stuck in our own little worlds, our own little bubbles, doing our daily tasks – surviving. But we ALL have the ability to reach out to others – to learn a little bit about their worlds – and to ultimately have more purpose in our lives. We actually become a BRIDGE between two things. Between ourselves and them. And in doing that, we can make not only our lives better, but can contribute to a better world.
