A rainy day coming up in your city or more restrictions are imposed to your daily life? Then watch this inspiring video of less than 2 minutes!
What a touching piece to never feel too small or weak to drive change. And dare to be the first, even when it’s out of your comfort zone.
While there are so many discussions about the bad influence of social media, I am one who rather looks at its opportunities and advantages such as meeting new inspiring people.
This is how I met a fellow Lithuanian, Romanas Zontovicius, who was interested to hear about my experiences in Uganda since he has engaged in a philanthropic initiative there too!
So today I am super excited to introduce you to another guest article on my blog! This time Romanas is sharing with us his unique and first-hand experience from Silicon Valley.
I like to start every year with a new habit which I believe will help me to improve myself, especially mentally.
In 2021 I decided to commit sharing more failure stories on social media and less of “Look, my dear network how well I am doing!”
So here is my first story:
Right before Christmas I have received a letter from Rotterdam municipality with a fine to pay. This would be all OK, but the reason of the fine really made me upset. Why?
Because it was for recycling ♻️, which I have been doing for many years! My neighbors are all so much into recycling too that after 1-2 days of an emptied paper bin, it gets full immediately.
So there were times when I left my paper near a bin which earned me a fine. Shame on me!
Lesson learnt - never leave your waste outside a bin! Not only to avoid a fine, but also ensure your street looks neat and clean. Continue asking your municipality to increase paper bin removal service.
I would love to hear your failure stories too! Please share it in Comments.
