“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.”

Dr. Seuss

“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Maya Angelou

I liked her cute little outfit!
"It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change."

For the first time in over 40 years, a nation has decided to change the

side of the street that they drive on.

Today is the second day of a two-day national holiday in

S A M O A.

The island nation will now be driving on the

Left Side, British style,

like Pacific neighbors Australia and New Zealand.

Have your figured out why they are making this change?

Steering-wheel-on-da-left American cars

are expensive to ship!

Samoan officials hope that expat Samoans in Oz & N.Z.

(of which there are many)

will send used cars home to their rural relatives.

It is hoped that this change will thus give the country

an economic shot in the arm.

Experts claim that doing things in new ways,

like brushing ones teeth with the unaccustomed arm,

is good for the brain-

forging new connections and maintaining cognitive flexibility.

How might you improve


life by seeing things in new ways,

trying on new perspectives?

Thanks for visiting today!
