If I die doing something I love, then Im Happy

If I die, doing something I love, then Im happy. My Dad..

this was something he always said… mostly as he got older and continued pushing the boundaries…

I was having a conversation the other day… about ‘Adrenalin rushes’… I like them… in fact Im thinking of my next one… I learnt something from my dad – he was still doing Paragliding in his 70’s…

My dad taught me so much growing up, how to treat people, how not to treat people.

He made me work for everything when I was young, nothing was given to me on a plate.

That stayed with me ,I’ve done a bungee and a ski dive..and people will say 

‘Oooh How can you trust the plane or this or that’… and you can’t..

There are no guarantees in Life… You can go tomorrow – crossing the road… You can drop down dead tomorrow… ( sorry, however it IS the case) I just picked this out of a beautiful post by a young man who was given a death sentence…

In all honesty – WE are ALL going to die.. the Difference is Most of Us… don’t know..

I have done some terrifying things in my life, spontaneously moving to New Zealand in my last 20’s.  Arriving there, rowing with the man I loved and having to find myself a job and accomdation.
Booking myself into some horrendous accomodation in Melbourne, and finding something PDQ and walking across town the next day to find a better place !! Its hilarious, and fun and has made me stronger and wiser !!

So back to this article,

Where as some people are told ‘You have 4 months to live…. That could be Any of Us…

Anyway – this young man – wrote this down.

Don’t waste your time on work that you don’t enjoy.

It is obvious that you cannot succeed in something that you don’t like. Patience,

Passion, and Dedication come easily only when you love what you do. It’s stupid to be afraid of others’ opinions….

…and yet most of us, if not ALL of us have been there… Fear weakens and paralyzes you.

If you let it, it can grow worse and worse every day until there is nothing left of you, but a shell of yourself. Listen to your inner voice and go with it. Some people may call you crazy, but some may even think you‘re a legend. Take control of your life Take full responsibility for the things that happen to you.

Limit bad habits and try to lead a healthier life. Find a sport that makes you happy.
Most of all, don’t procrastinate.
Let your life be shaped by decisions you made, not by the ones you didn’t.
Appreciate the people around you Your friends and relatives will always be an infinite source of strength and love. That is why you shouldn’t take them for granted. –
