Dear Hawkeye,

I intend to live mindfully & consciously today — you have inspired me. Not to take things for granted but to question: am I doing this out of habit or because it is the right & good thing to do? Will this hurt or help? Will this benefit others? If not, how can I benefit others today? I haven’t asked that last one for a while, being all wrapped up in my own life.

Thank you.
