Gift future generations in proportion to your gratitude.
The nature of life is that we pay forward

choose to take "pay it forward" farther - much farther.

Life just happens to us regardless of our best intentions.
Our only path to happiness lies in being open
to receiving whatever life throws at us -
with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life.
