On January 4th, 2018, the girl in the photo above passed away. She was afflicted with Erwing’s Sarcoma, a rare form of cancer that affects young people. Before she passed away, she penned her thoughts on life in the last few months. Her family shared this on Facebook after her demise.
There is some invaluable life advice in the letter. The one that reverberated the most with me is to not take the small setbacks seriously and to be grateful for what we have. Living happily is more important than to live a life full of material possessions.
She may be young but her thoughts are profound. Here is the letter Holly wrote.
I’ve noticed that some of the most honest life advice comes from people who are at the end of life. At that stage, people are genuine and they have the unique ability to look at the larger picture. This is what motivated me to collate these valuable lessons into a book called, ‘UnKick the Bucket : How Near-Death Experiences Teaches Us the True Priorities in Life’.
