Live a Meaningful Life (The Twitter Post That Triggered Me)

This is one of the many reasons why I love social media, and Twitter is a place where you can get lots of wonderful inspiration. Here's a tweet that triggered me to write the 90-word post below. Happy reading!

The purpose of life is to discover your gift. The meaning of life is to give it away.
~David Viscott

I believe I’m blessed with the ability to take good pictures and a knack for languages. I enjoy teaching and although I dread upcoming training sessions in my office, once I get the ball rolling my participants seem to enjoy them too.

I would love to give parts of me away through volunteering, perhaps by teaching English or other life skills to children in poor countries. When I’m not teaching, to use my skills in social media, photography and writing to help such organizations or community groups spread the word.
