The final cab ride
Take every moment that you are given,not for granted. You could play a major role in someone's " last ride"

Heartwarming story
Though this story had a rather sad element, it provided a great lesson. Appreciate the small things, don’t miss them while waiting for the great things. ❤️

This was a lovely story made better by Dea’s reading. One of the things this made me think of is that we all impact the lives of others and it’s best to act kindly. Wish I always remembered that when I’m stressed! Another reason to love Aura - more reminders like this are bound to have a positive effect.

This story was reflective as I were the driver himself to take in.
Today I brought great heaviness into that cab, yet would have shifted into a role of servitude, taking in what was happening. It’s difficult for me to dissolve this emotional weight that originated from a personal traumatic event on Saturday and culminated on Sunday. This story in the middle of my current state of shock and PTSD has only placed solemnity towards this frail woman’s closing chapter in her life and can be the cab driver, still. Reflective. Insightful. I can only say I will continue processing the emotional trauma experienced this weekend and stay here in these quiet spaces of stories to find my light again.

Moments
I can't stop wondering about the box of photographs and such that was left on the table at the home... On another note, we all need to appreciate any great moment as it occurs

It’s so good to hear that story, it’s touches our deep emotion towards the old people. We can seldom see goodness in this earth nowadays. i hope that theres more cab drivers out there just like the British cabbie in the story

Last ride
This session made me cry. I live my life every day mostly worrying about things i need to do or should do, to be productive, and find purpose in my life. But what i realize after listening to this, is how i forget to enjoy what i have created for myself. My home, my family, my peace, my safety, my health, my career. I need more moments to take a deep breath, pause in life and worry and stress and just remember to live. I am going to die one day. And my real wish for life is to just be happy and have joy. I am grateful for today.
