Today I was inspired by the story of Zach Sobiech. A young man – a teenager – a kid… Who found out he had cancer and only a few months to live and decided to live big bold and unapologetic in his greatness. He wrote and recorded songs, became YouTube sensation and a rock star, loved profoundly, left great memories and savored every precious moment with his family and friends. Zach said “I don’t want to die when I have so much to do” and then he did all he could in the time he had left. Funny, before he was diagnosed he was planning to go to college and matriculate into society quietly… But his sickness changed his view. He said “most people have dreams and push them aside saying they won’t ever happen. I don’t want to do that.”
I’m not dying… But I learned a valuable lesson from Zach’s life. I learned that I don’t wanna wait to enjoy my life and times, to live fearlessly, to be authentic and selfless. I don’t wanna live a shell of an existence because of fear or disbelief. I learned that I must be everything I’m supposed to be (again) -and why. The world needs to know I was here. God needs to know I did what He sent me here for.
