Life and how to live it

I'm not usually one to post stuff that someone emailed to me, but this is one of those ones that had an impact on me. A pretty sobering 10 minutes:

I experienced the very same six months that he did, but my outcome was considerably different.

I'm cured....for now.

You guys patted me on the back, and often commented about how well I was dealing with the treatment. I had no other choice....I chose to continue living my life for myself, my wife, and my children. During the week after my diagnosis, I spent hour after hour, doubled up on the floor, crying my eyes out. My children are 2 and 4. I want nothing more than to see my kids graduate college. That's it. Once they make it that far, I know they'll do well in life, and I can be done. I spent YEARS being the tough, fit, rescue swimmer and war hero, and I was brought to my knees by the thought of having to leave my chidren behind. So, after a week of contemplation and soul searching, I decided that if these were going to be my last days, I was going to be the best dad and the best father that I could. I was going to enjoy life and enjoy my family as much as I could with the time I had left. That way, I wouldn't have anything to regret if things didn't work out. The thought of my friends and family put the fight in my sails that I needed. You all kept me going, day after day with the positive things you had to say about me.

And, after a decent amount of fighting, I kicked the beast out of my body.

You immediately realize what's important in life. You realize the goals you haven't met, and the dreams you want to fulfill. We all have limited time as mortals on this planet we call Earth, and each one of us should be living life to the fullest....and each day as if it's our last. So what if something is a tad out of your price range....will you ever have the chance to buy that thing again? Will you ever have the chance to take that trip? Help that person? Do something good for someone? No one knows. Everyone lives life as if there's plenty of it left.

Imagine how you'd live life if you found out you had only 60 days left. Quite differently, I'd imagine. Why not live that way, even if we have years to live?


So, I fight the cancer, and I win. My perspective of life is forever changed. I decided I'm going to start doing things that I've only dreamed about. A dream will always be just a dream, unless you make an attempt to live it for real.

There's a reason my thread is called "Firehawk's R7 dream thread". That bike was a dream come true.

Pretty awesome stuff. If you can stand a bit of technobabble here and there, the full length video of the original lecture is well worth the hour and fifteen minutes. He had to do a lot of condensing to get it Oprah-ized.

Wow! That was powerful enough even in his cliff notes-Oprah version. It just gets straight to the point.

Good stuff

My Last Lecture

http://download.srv.cs.cmu.edu/~pausch/


He was on ABC News with Diane Sawyer


Professor Randy Pausch's inspiring last lecture at Carnegie Mellon about living life to the fullest struck a chord with people all over the country. Seven months later, Pausch talks about his battle with cancer, his family and how that last lecture changed his life.





Haven't seen it all but it's a very moving video for sure

I saw him on TV as well, it's a great speech/lecture.

Very sad story, but one to open everyones eyes for sure.

Definitely worth the repost, though. The guy is still alive and kicking, to boot -- he's outlived his doctors' expectations by a longshot. Gotta believe his attitude has a lot to do with it.

Although sad to hear he's gone, I think as opposed to those who go unexpectedly, Randy was more prepared for his time to come than anyone. Just last week there was a young (30 I think) cop shot and killed while on duty in our area. His wife and 3 kids (5yrs, 20 months, and 4 months) never had the chance to say goodbye. I believe (as I'm sure he did) that Randy was extremely lucky to have the time he did to spend with his family before he dies. RIP Randy, and thanks for the final lecture and the lessons we can learn from you.

Awesome post Mark.... We're all so happy you have had a positive outcome and I have referred to you and your story many times in the last few months to family that is going through some similar times. You have been an inspiration to me and your journey opened my eyes as well. I have made some big changes in my life in the last 6 months and your issue helped me make the decisions I needed too. Family comes first!
