Live Happy

"Zach Sobiech, at the age of 14, found out he had a rare form of terminal cancer. So he became a rock star, and millions of people got to see his music before he passed away on May 20, 2013. This is his beautiful story."!

I found this to be such an incredible story. I feel that it is easy to lose perspective of your life and to take things for granted. It is a matter of habit in how each individual choses to view their own life. What is truly incredible about life is that you have a choice; you have the choice to be the kind of person you want to be. Do you want to be the type of person who has a positive influence on others; do you want to be a person of honesty, good work ethic, a good attitude, someone who chooses to smile?  You have the choice. I think what is the most fulfilling is to be the kind of person who simply lives happily; the kind of person who tries to look at the good in others instead of the bad, the kind of person who believes in the Universe and the beauty of it. Zach's story really inspired me so I feel it is valuable to share with others. Sometimes life can knock you down. It almost feels at times like you are in a dark hole and you can't seem to see the light, let alone dig yourself out. At times like these we must put things into perspective. At times like these we must remember that everything is temporary. The feelings we feel are temporary and will eventually surpass. By putting things into perspective one can live freely and I think that is truly a blessing. Live, laugh, love, be happy.
