  1. @Shranda Yes, that is about as honest and direct as things get.

    @Fabi Sorry, I hope everything is good with you and your family. What a difficult time you’ve all been through. I wish you the best. Your brother is somewhere better today.

  2. Well, I don’t want my motorcycle license, but this is very inspiring for what dream I do want to go for. Thanks!

  3. Spot on Steve!

    When the nurse wheeled Mary (my mother) back to her hospital room about six hours after she had been wheeled away, nothing else mattered. Not to me anyway. Or Ronnie (my dad). For a bloke who has a pretty busy mind (mostly in a positive, creative way), I don’t think I have ever been so focused or invested into one single moment in time.

    The building could have been falling down around me and it wouldn’t have mattered. I stood there and studied my mum’s face as though I was seeing it for the first time. It was the most beautiful face I have ever seen. Melissa the uber-nurse informed the two warriors that the surgery had gone exceptionally well and that the doctor would be in to see us at some stage. The collective relief swept over us both like a warm tidal wave of emotion. For a while, all I wanted to do was hold her hand, watch her sleep, kiss her forehead and watch her chest rise and fall as she breathed. So that’s what I did. And I loved and appreciated every moment. I was totally in the now and I wanted for nothing.

    Life is too short!

  4. Hey Steve,

    Great video. Poetry, her words spoken with emotion – and the fact that it’s not just a performance, not just her thoughts, but her real life truth.

    One of my favorite videos I’ve seen in a while!

  5. Whoa, I booked marked this site god knows when but I stumbled upon it today. Love this entry. Thanks for sharing, it’s just what I needed.

  6. I want to thank this brave woman so much for sharing.

    My father died just over a year ago and I went through the phase of not caring if the world came to an end. I just wanted to be with the people I loved for as long as possible.

    It’s amazing how quickly you can get caught back up in the pettier things in life. We all need to be reminded how precious our lives are and not concentrate on insignificant details. We all need to be reminded to strive to be happy. This was that reminder
