Get Inspired

How to live every day like it's your last: A lesson from Zach Sobiech

 
"I though I was invincible. I was ready for college, pretty much. I was planning out way ahead. Then, well, it turns out sometimes you can't do that...I've been told I have a few months to live, but I still have a lot of work to do. I want everyone to know you don't have to find out your dying to start living."
 
This is how Zach Sobiech's "Last Days" video begins. You might have heard his viral song "Clouds" (watch the video below--his voice and lyrics are breathtaking), but it's really his spirit that is so infectious and inspiring. When he was in 8th grade, Zach was diagnosed with cancer. After a round of radiation left him with disease spreading through his lungs, he made the choice between living out the rest of his life or trying to struggle through difficult surgeries that would leave him unable to sit up by himself. He chose to live--just like the Kris Allen song says. Yesterday, Just 17 days after his 18th birthday, Zach passed away, but not before he left a piece of himself behind to urge us on. Take a look...

Now tell us, babes: Are you inspired? What do you want to do that you've been putting off?
