I read this a couple of days ago and it keeps running through my heart and mind. Hopefully it does not take such tragedy to motivate you to action. For me, just reading this post has motivated me to re-commit to several goals that I have been procrastinating on. Let me know if this one motivates you like it has me.
It was five years ago today, at the age of 24, I was sitting next to my mother as she lay on her deathbed dying of cancer and I watched as she took her last breath. As I sat there, staring blankly at her now soulless body, my mind was flooded with so many thoughts and emotions. Most importantly, at that moment, I truly realized just how short life can be and I now had a deep desire and a “why” to do something great with my life.
