This must watch video REALLY tugged on my heartstrings. From the moment they started talking, I could feel the energy, and love this family has for one another. Mr. Ryan Woods was unafraid of dying, trying leaving behind as much as he can for his children. This is something we should all strive for every day.
EDIT: Hm, the vid isn’t loading correctly. Trust me its worth the watch! It’s not as pretty, but here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEJx6nbDyhA&list=PLzvRx_johoA8PC6S5k5S2SszRQOR8oSEa%5D
I’m sure many of you have been asked “What is your biggest fear?” multiple times in your life. I’ve heard so many different answers (spoiler alert if you ever want to ask me this in person). Answers usually range from spiders, to heights, or public speaking. Want to know what mine is?
The fear of losing someone you love. =/
Whenever I contemplate about death, it isn’t a fearless journey. Death is my biggest fear–just not my own death. Life is so damn fickle. Every interaction you have with another human being is important.
“Then there is the most dangerous risk of all – the risk of spending your life not
doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.”
You can’t change or mend relationships such a short time. What it comes down to is who you’ve touched, and how much of an impact on their life you’ve made. Work hard. Fulfill your responsibilities. Make and maintain friendships. But if you keep postponing your own happiness until “later”, know that tomorrow may never come. Everyone should just take a deep breath everyday and celebrate LIFE! There is so much joy out there to be spread! Every moment is a new opportunity for happiness!
“…So the questions is, what is the story are we going to live out as we’re dying? Just invite people to live a beautiful story regardless of what type of brokenness they have to deal with.”
Now its my turn to ask you, if you had 1-4 months to live, what would you do?
