“Live each day as it were your last.”
“Live like you were dying.”
“What would you do if this was your last day on Earth?”
These are all quotes that we’ve heard, but chances are none of them stuck unless the doctor just told you that you have cancer. Well, that’s exactly what happened to comedian Steve Mazan.
After Steve was diagnosed with liver cancer, he went through the 5 stages of grief. When he finally got to the acceptance stage, he decided he was going to go after his lifelong dream of being on David Letterman.
You can see his story in the video below. But just in case you don’t have time to watch it, Steve has a couple of messages for you. The first is, “Bad news, I am dying. But I have more bad news, you’re all dying too.”
How does that make you feel? Probably not as bad as the next quote where Steve says, “If your not chasing your dream, you’re already dead.”
For some of us it’s hard to define what our dreams are. I know in my mind when I die, I want people to know what I thought about this world. I want people to remember me as a good dad and good lover, a bad-ass writer and decent pool player. So that’s what I’m trying to do with my life right now as much as I can, whenever I can. Hanging out with my kid and fiance. Writing. Playing pool. And living the dream.
