Travel. Read. Give.

Travel. Read. Give.


It’s always exciting to travel, always enriching to read a book, and always satisfying to give. These are the three experiences that I feel make our lives rich in terms of quality and knowledge, financially, they all soak $$ : ).

Since I am about to begin a journey, it just occurred to me how much I have learned in the past years just by traveling to different places  —  about different cultures, food, people, values, architecture, art, history…the list is long. It is essential that one travels because it teaches you a lot subconsciously, while you are busy admiring the surroundings. It’s fun, isn’t it?!

Books also allow us to travel  —  to places, times, and imagination. The best part of reading is that it allows you to visit the world, moments in time, meet people (characters), and experience emotions  —  all by just sitting in one place. Like travel, reading too lends the exposure to different cultures, personalities, scenarios, and psychology. Books obviously reach our soul at a much deeper level. And that can be a very enriching experience each time you pick one to read.

And giving, of course, makes one feel satisfied with having made a good contribution to the world, society/people, or to an individual. The thought of giving is noble and the gesture of giving is soul-nourishing. You don’t need to be rich to give. Giving, I feel, can be in many forms — it can be time, financial, emotional, material, physical, education, the contribution of skill, and more. The experience of giving is so fulfilling that it always leaves you richer even when you are actually letting go of something from your end. And you learn a lot in the whole experience because when you give, you think about and witness what’s lacking on the other side, in so many areas, in so many lives. That’s what makes the experience so touching and filled with introspection and self-realization. So give more in life to learn through others’ lives.

If you too believe that traveling, reading and giving are enriching experiences, do leave a comment. It will be interesting for others to read and know more. That’s a way to give too!
