Fan Seller

I sometimes complain about my “daily grind”, and the stress that comes along with my job. And then I go travelling and see how some people work and try to make a living. It is inspiring and a great motivation for me to always keep pushing forward. This lady was selling these fans – which she also was making – for 30 Baht/each. 30 B equals about $1 CAD. I can’t imagine myself sitting on the ground trying to sell these all day – and here she was doing exactly that, from morning until night. The thing that struck me was how much positive energy she emitted. She wasn’t sitting there in despair, instead she had a wonderful presence and dignity about her. I also think the contrast between her and the surrounding cold concrete rather striking.
