I just wanted to share a story that made a profound impact on me this morning. I cannot imagine what a loss his family is experiencing. Here is someone who truly encompassed living. I don’t know Zach personally, but after watching this video I felt like I did. I urge you to take a few minutes to watch Zach’s story. http://www.upworthy.com/this-kid-just-died-what-he-left-behind-is-wondtacular-rip
Never ever take what time you have for granted. Never take your friends and family for granted. Never miss a second saying I love you, or wishing them to have a great day if you sincerely mean it. I am not sure why at this point in my life I have become so sentimental or sensitive toward living. Maybe it was that nightmare I had that “woke me up”.
Love costs nothing. It is freely given in the purest form. It is something that must be chosen to give out and to whom it will be given. Some are more generous with love than others. The amount of generosity one may have with loving others might indicate greater understanding toward the virtue of love. In the end, I truly believe that we receive what it is we give out.
When you look at your life, when you really see what you have done and all the lives you have touched–will you be satisfied? Will you say, I really tried to embrace life in all its joys, sorrows, and worth? Did I do the best I can? Was my heart fully in it 100%?
I think once you start to realize the value of life you start also equally looking at everything differently. You start really seeing how precious it is. When you have someone slip too soon from you, you have the choice to be bitter or you have the choice to love more. I suppose disasters such as the tornado in Oklahoma also make you realize how short, but sweet life is. I can imagine when those parents were kissing their child good-bye yesterday, I am sure that it never crossed their mind that this might be the last time they see their little one. Tragic.
Treasure the ones you love and hold on tighter. Don’t make the mistake of taking those who mean the most to you for granted.
