Live your life by the example of the dying

I wanted to share this story I found on facebook.  This is a story of how a dying teenager taught the living how to REALLY LIVE.  No one lives forever but this guy's life had a solid expiration date.  So, he stood up and lived the rest of his days.

His lessons are so valuable!

- Intentionally make people feel happy every day, instead of always trying to make ourselves happy.

- Notice everything: beautiful things will become more beautiful, love will become richer, experiences will be deeper.

- Invest in your relationships.  Tell people that you love them, and WHY you love them.  Spend quality time with those you love...REAL time, meaningful time.

- Own each moment, every minute of time we're given and make it amazing, living each day as if it were truly our last.

- Never sacrifice quality of life for longer life.

- Dream, dream, and keep dreaming.  It's never too late.

- Be a person of depth: depth in spirit, depth in love, depth in thought and in action!

- Don't live in fear, instead live in joy.

Isn't this so moving? It just makes me think about so many things. Zach didn't have a long life but what a FULL life he led. What a great tribute and his song - I cannot get it out of my head :)

I'm 8 minutes in and choking back tears. I want to be the one you would want to spend your last days with. That's who you are to me.

I saw this on FB...what an incredible young man...and family. There truly are lessons to be learned here.

Hope you and your family are well. I've missed "seeing" you. Hopefully, I will be more consistent in checking blogs again. So much to do, though...sorting through and packing up 20 years of living in this house.
Hugs,
Jane
