  • 🌿FIND YOURSELF🌿 “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Mahatma Gandhi. 🙏 It might sound obvious but journeys are not only physical but emotional too. When I look at the first picture I was the strongest I’ve ever been in my life - kayaking through the Amazon jungle - but emotionally in a fragile place - consumed with self-doubt, worry and ego. On the second, being munched by a flesh eating parasite that had the potential to eat off my nose and soft pallet, I was physically the weakest I’ve ever been but emotionally so much stronger. The difference is purpose. 🌿 Getting and going through outdated toxic chemical therapy for 3 weeks was shit and I couldn’t move by the end of it. But it opened my eyes to global inequality of healthcare. One billion people in 98 countries around the world are at risk of leishmaniasis (one strain is the second biggest killer after malaria) yet there’s no capital incentive for drug companies to do much about it because the people who get it are poor and in remote areas. Wherever we are in the world we are all human. Access to treatment - even if it dates from the 1940s - should not be based on an accident of birth. 🌿 We all struggle. We all make mistakes. We all need to learn to try and forgive ourselves and move on from them. If I could offer any advice it would be to find something that gives you purpose. Serve a cause greater than yourself. I promise, you’ll feel better for it. 🙏 Jungle 📸 @peiman.zekavat
