I have been driving for Uber and Lyft since 2015. I started this project in November 2017 with the aim of having strangers who ride in my car share a piece of positive wisdom or advice that helps carry them on their daily progress through life. My goal is to reach anyone who is at a point in their life when they need positivity the most.
Over the years, I have observed many people dealing with a wide variety of troubles. Depression. Loneliness. Medical catastrophe. Abuse. Violence. Trauma. Betrayal. The loss of a loved one. Sometimes our suffering can even be unknowingly past along to us from previous generations as the field of Epigenetics has discovered. The list goes on. The human experience is filled with suffering that can leave us in deep need for a lifeline.
In our current very divisive cultural climate, there exists a need for an injection of positivity.
Throughout this experience, I have reaffirmed that we have far more in common with one another than the differences.
