Heading to Illinois to speak to total strangers about#mitchellsjourney
What I find most fascinating about these speaking assignments is whether I'm speaking to 3,000 people or 300, we begin the presentation strangers but leave friends.
It is strange, really, because we each leave with a renewed clarity about what really matters in life and find ourselves bound by deep feelings of love and gratitude for life. Perhaps the greatest tragedies in life aren't the lives that are cut short, but the lives that are never truly lived. Though birth and death matter, I'm persuaded it is the time in-between that matter most. In the end, how well we lived will be more important than how long. Mitch lived noble and he lived well, and because of him, I am living differently, purposefully and deliberately. For that I am grateful.
