My mum keeps a small plastic figurine of Ronald McDonald in her car. It was one of those free giveaways you get when you buy a meal. Anyway, she had an old manual car that had a choke that you had to pull out when you started it. The problem was it used to slide back whenever she pulled it out. On cold Melbourne mornings you needed to keep the choke out until the car engine warmed up, so she use to pull the choke out and then push Ronald down so the choke sat between his legs and it stopped it slipping back.
Mum has a lovely car now but she keeps the Ronald figurine in her car to remind her where she's come from and to be grateful for the car she has now.
No matter what your mode of transport is, appreciate it. At least you're going somewhere.
