Now is all we have.
Well today I watched this video that eighteen year old Ben Breedlove recorded before he passed away on Christmas day. My eyes filled with tears and I was once again reminded to seize the moment.
Ben was born with a heart condition and knew he had cheated death on several occasions.
He had experienced “death” and describes the peace he felt in those moments. I believe he recorded this video for his family and the world because he knew his time here was very short.
As you watch Ben’s videos I pray that you see that there are no guarantees and whether we live to be eighteen or one hundred and eight, life is short. Life is precious. And life is meant to be celebrated NOW.
Thank you for your life Ben.
Thank you for your videos.
Enjoy your next adventure! xoxo
