Every good deed, however small, adds to the collective goodness of the world. This is the mantra I live by every day. Yesterday, today or tomorrow. Small acts of kindness. This is what I think is important and what will help everyone till the end of their time on this earthly plane.
I also try to instill a love of learning in my students. Not of marks or grades or even just understanding Maths, but a love of learning and a sense of wonder at the beauty of the mathematical world. Every day.
For myself, I read incessantly, anything that I can lay my hands on. Books, books and more books. Imbibing knowledge is not my purpose, though that does happen automatically, enjoying a fabulous yarn is definitely a yes! The world of books is my very lifeblood, the air I breathe, food for my soul.
I live one day at a time. A fulfilling, joyous life it has been so far and the last thing I do is being grateful for it. Gratitude for every moment, every incident, good or bad, simple gratitude for this rainbow-hued life, the rich tapestry of family and friends with which I have been blessed. I am grateful
