When we start living

I just finished watching a YouTube video about a 17-year old who died of cancer, yet every day from the moment he found out he has cancer until the day he passed, he lived life as though every single day counted – he obsessively made music, spent quality time with his friends and family, and even started a romantic relationship with someone he fell in love with. It’s a cliched, easy thing to say that we should “live life to its fullest,” but it’s the most inspirational when we learn stories of those whose clock is truly ticking in the scariest way that we all fear. If we held onto each day as though it could be our last, we’d probably all be a little more honest, a bit more affectionate, and a lot more real.
