Randy Pausch verbalized these wonderful thoughts about life on earth, in 2007, just before his death:
"We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand."
"You have to decide whether you are Tigger or an Eeyore. You have to be clear where you stand on the Tigger/Eeyore debate."
Witnessing a resilient and positive person, who may be in the midst of a life threatening health condition, is truly a life inspiring event. It changes you and it's a blessing!
