Confessions of a 5-Star Uber Driver (Abbreviated Version for Social) I have two confessions to make: Firstly, I’m an Uber driver… Secondly, I LOVE IT!... Never mind the fact that I enjoy a 5-star rating after a month behind the wheel; and, this experience at first only served to be an employment-bridge after re-re-locating to Washington, D.C. What really motivates me in this adventure are the people who entrust me with their safe care and passage. And to all those people (aka passengers), I say thank you! Again, I don’t ask for these revelations, but find it hard to not be engaging when the lady with Cancer, looking for distraction and cheer in the aisles of Walmart after a long morning of doctors visits in her battle with cancer, tells me of she and her college-enrolled daughter’s quest to raise two adorable kittens. Your hug of thanks on your porch after helping with the bags gave purposeful meaning to an otherwise routine day... To the trio of individual passengers (aka UberPool; and all of us DC residents) who entertained me while passing the time in traffic. Your collegial embrace of each other, while from very disparate places and experiences [the likes of which include a female native-Puerto Rican, just back from checking on her parents and volunteering in-relief; a retired native-New Yorker weary of whether her mother should stay in FL post-storms; and the Ohioan farm-boy, who now advocates for wheat growers on Capitol Hill], you all inspire a cooperation so badly needed in our country right now… And, to the Former Marine and current State Department employee, who long after the trip was completed and the meter was turned off, helped me in drafting a global peace accord. It began at “respect” and ended with “reconciliation.” We all want reconciliation of presence, purpose and perspective. This I have learned from driving Uber... This is my Uber story, and I’m sticking to it! #theaggieeventplanner #befearless @uber @mashable @washingtonpost @nytimes #respect #presence #purpose #perspective #inspiration #compassion #washingtondc #nationscapitol #thewhitehouse #world #peace #faith #hope #love #god #humanity

Sometimes, in order to gain an understanding of others, all we need to do is change our perspective. 🙂🙃🤘🏼 #waybackwednesday #wisdom #wednesday #wellness #lifelessons #inspire #awareness #compassion #motivation #change #perspective #views #adventure #simplicity #journey #mind #body #soul #connection #getoutside #haveagoodday #goodtimes

RepostBy @2plantbasedbodies: "The one of many cures for cancer was found in 1931. What are you still walking for? What irritates me is.. I see people who have beat cancer through chemotherapy and they still eat the same unhealthy bullshit that made them sick in the beginning.😒 so I guess people would rather eat the food they love that poisons them over the food thats gonna heal them.

❤️🙏🏼🐶🐱🐰🐷🐮🦁🙏🏼💫#Repost from @wedonteatanimals ・・・ I just learned about the Kukur Tihar celebration happening now in India, it is a day for an outpouring of love and worship for dogs and the acknowledgement and celebration of the relationship between us. Dogs, claimed or stray, receive food, garlands, and extra care. Crows and cows have their own day, too. I don’t know much more, but I am heartened by the visuals, and by imagining what it would be like to live in a world where this kind of devotion, love, and respect is sustainable, ongoing, and extended to all living beings. 💚🌎 #kukurtiharfestival 📷 x @discovernepal
