I’d like to share a humbling and inspirational video about a philosophy for a happy life. It’s about 12 minutes long.
Sam Berns, the speaker, has a very positive outlook on life, he’s accomplished some wonderful things, and he’s looking forward. He’s a 17-year-old high school student with a rare disease that causes premature aging. Indeed, he does look old.
What’s not stated in the video is even more striking. The video was taped at a conference in late October 2013. Less than two months later, Sam Berns passed away. He had to be aware of his health when he made the video. It’s humbling to consider those of us who have so much more than him, and do so much less. Here’s to Sam Berns, and may we be inspired by his example, deeds, and devotion.
