Ancient Egyptians believed that upon death they would be asked two questions and their answers would determine whether they could continue their journey in the afterlife.  
The first question was, "Did you bring joy?"  
The second was, "Did you find joy?"

Reason Number 627 to See the World

To see how the world sees you. I am still walking around in my same body, with my same life, and the same personality, but out here there is a whole new set of eyes, a new batch of teachers. Every moment, every nod with a passing stranger gives me a slightly new perspective of myself, of the other people who live on this planet, and how I might live on it differently and with them. Tiny little lessons, each step, each glance is a moment to see something new.
