People of the Wild Atlantic Way –
Lizzie Reid – Castletownbere, West Cork.
‘What inspires me is kindness and gratitude in other people . I notice that if you are helpful and friendly to others it brightens up their lifes . People treat you as you treat them, empathy and compassion are powerful and very important emotions.
It gives me belief in future generations to see it develop in my own children, if I can instil in them to give gratitude and be grateful, and to seek goodness in others.
There’s always someone worse off, be thankful for what we have today, for tomorrow it might be gone.’
