This guest post is in video form, and so freaking cute!

But don’t let the ‘little’ messenger take the focus off the message.

This post is rather contrary to my post a few days ago Letting it all Hang Out, when I shared that I have Evil Thoughts and that I often want to say some of the negative things I’m really thinking. Lets think of this post as equal representation 😉 . Honestly, the benefits of speaking blessings to others, rather than curses, has such profound benefits to the one receiving, as well as the one giving the blessing that promoting this lifestyle just makes good sense.

If we simply could spend more time building into and building up the people around us, I wonder if the environment, the community around us would change for the good.

(personally, on number 18 and 11, I would change to chocolate 😉 )

(my favorite is 14 … and 10 … and 6 … and 4 … and …)

So, what about you? What do you think people should say more often?

En route to work yesterday the radio announcer talked about a young man who had recently become a YouTube sensation. What made him rise to the top was his music, his joie de vivre (the way he lived life to the full) … and the fact that he was dying.

Zach Sobiech, a teenager from Lakeland, Minnisota, from a family of six … mother (Laura), father (Rob), Alli (22), Sam (19), and Grace (14). A senior at high school. A student making plans for college. A musician. A young … young man.

Zach-Sobiech-3-600

At fourteen Zach was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer), and he spent much of the next four years fighting for his life with surgeries and treatments. In May of 2012, Zach’s doctors informed him, and his family, that they felt he only about a year to live … at seventeen years of age.

Encouraged by his mom to write letters to the ones he loved, Zach threw his heart into writing music instead. In December his single, Clouds, was released on YouTube, and at the time of this writing, there have been over three and a half million hits.

On Monday, May 20, 2013, Zach completed his earthly journey, breathing his last with those he loved most, and who will miss him most, gathered around.

“And we’ll go up, up, up
But I’ll fly a little higher
We’ll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer
Up here my dear
It won’t be long now, it won’t be long now”
‘Clouds’ (Zach Sobiech)

SoulPancake produced a story about Zach, and his incredible will to live each day as if he were dying. “My Last Days” is worthwhile time spent.

“I want everyone to know, you don’t have to find out you are dying, to start living.”
Zach Sobiech
