3 Things to do everyday…..

  1. Laugh
  2. Think
  3. Have your emotions move you to tears
3 Things to JUST Do…
  1. Enjoy your life, every moment you got
  2. To spend each day with some laughter and some thought
  3. To be enthusiastic, and work hard to achieve your dreams
Ralph Waldo Emerson “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.”

What Cancer cannot touch…

  1. My Mind
  2. My Heart
  3. My Soul
Those three things will carry on forever!

Personally I plan to watch this video at least once a week for the rest of the year. Once the message sinks in, maybe only once a week or so. Can’t wait to see the impact this will have on my life. I challenge you to do the same, impact your life with a simple 2 minute video.
