"almost everything--all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure--these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. remembering that you are going to die is the best way i know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. you are already naked. there is no reason not to follow your heart." - steve jobs
this weekend marks the year anniverary of when i was hospitalized for viral meningitis. a year later, i am strong, healthy, blessed. it seems morbid to reflect on such a difficult time, but what a great reminder of gifts, often over looked. of dreams yet to be realized.
we have control over a certain sphere of our lives, and in the uncertain space beyond, there is room to leap. to fall. to risk. to live--and to leave--with no regrets.
