I can’t take credit for this philosophy at all but man does it ring home. If other people would just live like Sam Berns did we would be a much happier society. This kid was absolutely amazing and while he passed to soon his memory will live on with alot of people who he touched through documentaries about his life and also his unwavering positivity.
So his philosophy so eloquently laid out in this TedX speech:
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
Photo of the Day – Don’t Look Backward
I walked up to Kerry Park for sunrise but before the sun rose I thought I’d take a couple of shots of this interesting telescope used to see details of the skyline. Someone put some googly eyes on the thing facing the other way and it reminded me of Sam’s philosophy of ‘keep moving forward’. The past is in the past and what was done cannot be undone all that can be done is trying to improve the situation going forward so don’t look back and think of what could have been because that is just wasted effort.
