This video whacked me in the face so hard, I ended up doing more whackings to myself just so I can remind myself: I’m great just the way I am; I’m so blessed with tons of beautiful things going on for me in my life.

I have a wonderful family, a loving wife, a flourishing career as a freelance writer, and a ministry that is blessing me so much and more. So much more. Then what more can I ask for?

That’s what I was reminded of when I stopped everything to watch this short video. A video that has tremendous power about a brave young boy who is very sick but who whouldn’t give up to have a happy life. He genuinely believes he can change the world!

Ok… enough jumping and praising like a crazy fan now. One of the best things I have learned from this boy is perseverance. The kind that comes from deep within; powerful, pure, unadulterated perseverance. Something that emanates down in the deepest recesses of our souls. A soul that has been breathed to life by a wonderful Creator who has gifted us with all the things we ever wanted and needed, and so much more.

It’s just that… we tend to forget a simple truth: we are strong and spectacular. If we just keep on reminding ourselves about this, we can all live a fabulous life. The kind we all dream to live.
