It's irritating to see beggars who are physically fit and young but still choose to beg for a living. They should understand the value of life and not waste it in begging for money when they are all capable to work.
No power in the world has the capability to stop a person to follow what he wants. The condition of a person is not a barrier which can possibly stop him to go miles and miles in his life.
I am not saying this just because I want you all to feel inspired, but because I have just come across to the supremely inspirational and eye-opening story of a man named Raimundo Arruda Sobrinho. He has lived 35 long years of his life on the road but what he did not do was wasting time. He used his time effectively in writing his thoughts and feelings. Nothing better can a person with such circumstances could have ever done if the person is not greatly self-motivated.
Mr Raimundo proved that dreams can be pursued in any condition.
This 78-year-old man saw a very hard time in the late 70's when he became homeless. He used his time on road to write poems and stories for the next 35 years.
The Brazilian poet and philosopher met Shalla Monteiro in 2011. She used to come to him and talk to him out of her own curiosity. Mr Raimundo once gave her a poem of his.
Shalla was so impressed by Raimundo's work that she wanted to make him famous by creating a Facebook page on his name.
His Facebook page was an instant hit on the internet and it took no time for the page to reach a hundred thousand likes with people sending him gifts and praises.
His Facebook page reached many. Among those many, was his long lost brother who offered Raimundo to live with him!
Mr Raimundo now had a best friend in Shalla and also a proper home to live for the coming years.
Now, Mr Raimundo is publishing all his works! Share and inspire millions!
