Motivation to live
Today my six year old daughter, for no apparent reason, asked me "Daddy, what do you have to do to live a long time?" Delighted that she was asking me something I have been researching so much lately, I cheerfully replied "You have to be happy, always enjoy what you're doing, avoid fighting and being angry, treat everyone as your friend, get lots of sleep, and only eat good things..."
What she said next took me completely by surprise:
"Daddy, I want you to live a long time"
I told her I was going to do everything I could.
