Zach Sobiech is a 17 year old diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. With only months to live, Zach turned to music to say goodbye. Zach tu…
I wouldn’t typically drop everything I’m doing to watch a random 22 minute video on Youtube. But yesterday, I stumbled across this video that with the tiniest mention of it being inspiring, compelled me to watch it.
Every day I try to find something inspiring, whether it’s just straight up people doing something awesome for other people, someone’s success story coming from a life of struggle, or even just a video of a kid who’s so proud of riding his bike for the first time without training wheels. Whatever it is that I’m able to find every morning that inspires me, it motivates my whole day to TRY harder, to not get so caught up in little things, and appreciate every single thing and person who has been a part of my story; my life. This video, however, changed my view on life entirely and has given me plenty more motivation than just a day’s worth.
I wanted to write up a small synopsis for this video for those of you who don’t feel like watching a 22 minute video, but I don’t want to ruin it for those of you who WILL take a mere 22 minutes out of today to watch this.
I promise you that after you see this video, you will forget about any and everything that has put you in a slump, a rough patch, whatever. Life seriously rules, and especially when you appreciate it in it’s entirety. If you can’t take it from me, take it from Zach in this video who was 17 years old and only given a few months to live. Watch what he does with his little time left on Earth and how many lives he changes by simply being positive and thankful.
