She gave her life for the wellness of others. ‘To volunteer is to thrive’, had been her mantra. In that, she found peace, she found fulfilment. For Nancy, it has never been about money. Her satisfaction came from simple things like a smile from a once unhappy child, seeing a once ailing family get out of the woods, rescuing an abandoned child, helping an abused person and the like.
She, therefore made it a point to have no attachments to property or people because she had learned earlier in life that leaving was so painful. She hated the way her emotions had played havoc on her when it was time for goodbyes.
Needless to say, she had been to millions of locations. And after learning to keep her emotions in check, upping and leaving was no longer a problem.
It has been 20 years since she embarked on her humanitarian journey and apart from failing to start a family of her own, she has no regrets. Besides, she’d been warned about that earlier in life and she had come to terms with it or rather made peace with it.
It has been one adventure after another with amassed fulfilment and contentment.
