In the every days, when you are cleaning the sink or hanging your clothes
remember the things that matter most are often the very smallest ones
and that many feelings don't always have to make sense to be real or warm.

We can't be useful to ourselves unless we're useful to others. Whether we like it or not, we're all connected, and it is unthinkable to be happy all by oneself. Anyone concerned only by his own well-being will suffer eventually. Anyone concerned with the well-being of others takes care of himself without even thinking ...about it.
~ Dalai Lama
