Life is too short




I know many of you have grown to love my "retro" Fridays. Well, today I want all of you to see something that has left a marked impression on my life. Watch it all the way to the end. AND get a kleenex, no a box cuz you're gonna need it. Then think about the message........

Thanks Rony.

So moving and so true, you need to hear things like that now and then it just wakes you up and makes you grateful for today and the blessings we have in our lives!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Rony.....you know how you go through life and when you're lucky, you have really good "guidepost-people" that help you find your way...? Well, you are...for sure....one of my guideposts and I love you dearly for it.
What a great gift to share to all of us. Keep it up, Rony. We're counting on you.

Big Hugs,
Cindy

He's amazing! It is such a perfect blueprint for living your life.
I watched the whole (76 min) lecture that he gave at CMU on YouTube. It is great!!! This one hits on all the important stuff, but the longer one really touches on how he became who he is. He's lived such an amazing life and career!

I remember watching this on Oprah. What an amazing outlook. Made my boys watch it. They looked at me funny when I started crying at the end. Kinda ruined the moment. Boys....Ugh....

You were right about the tissue. That last sentence gets you right in the heart.

Thanks for sharing it.

Funny I should see this... my boss teases me that I like to go on little vacations all the time... I tried to explain to him that as much as I enjoy working (though I vent at times)... I know I need to work to pay bills etc but life is for living and that isn't just working all the time... know what I mean... hence our little getaways all the time... to enjoy our life and have lots of little adventures... take care
