Occasionally I like to go to TEDx Talks on the Internet and listen to some of their inspiring clips. This evening I came across Sam Berns talk who became a national figure for going public in his life with “Progeria”, a rare genetic disease that causes accelerated aging that only about 250 children worldwide have it.
His philosophy for a happy life included the following:
1. Be OK with what you ultimately can’t do, because there is so much you CAN do.
2. Surround yourself with people you want to be around
3. Keep moving forward
4. Never miss a party if you can help it
Though Sam’s life was short lived as he died back in Jan. of 2014 due to complications from the rare genetic disease, according to the Progeria Research Foundation. His documentary film and TEDx Talk are very moving to say the least.
Watching this clip just might leave you thinking about the many blessings you do have right now in your own life and how much greater it can be by simply doing what he suggested.
