I’ve been fortunate to have some truly wonderful people who have made a massive difference in my life.
I am probably most thankful to a friend who did more than anyone else has done in this regard, in many ways. While he has definitely played a very positive role all through, he was the one who opened the doors to these worlds at two crucial junctures.
I have had a conversation with this friend more than once wondering aloud as to how I’d ever be able to pay him back. His response on all occasions has been ‘Pay it forward’.
I’ve hopefully done a bit of that over these years. And it’s a piece of advice I always keep close to my heart. It is a reminder.. of many things worth remembering from time to time.
And most importantly, it is, perhaps, a nice reminder of what this life is really about..
