Thank you.

 

I think there's enough unhappiness waiting for us all in later life and being a taxi driver I see and hear it everyday. Seems we might as well make the most of whatever we have in life while we can and remind yourself as often as you can how lucky you are.

 

There's very few things in each of our lives that really, really matter, then rest is just dressing.

 

I appreciate it sounds crappy but it works for me. :)
