Is this your last day on planet Earth? Probably not, hope not. And yet you never know.

Maybe you’re gonna say kind. Well, that would change the way you’d go about your day.

Maybe you’d be innovative. That would change the way you’d go about the day.

Maybe it’d be resourceful. I’ll just figure everything out. That too would shape the choices you made throughout the day.

Love on Wheels

The Dalai Lama says that happiness is a habit.
