"Last night was one of the hardest nights I've had in a long time emotionally ... Caring for a young 19 year old with cancer who's even more enthusiastic about life and it's endless possibilities than I am made me realized whatever my troubles are it's just a small hump in the road. This beautiful life shouldn't be wasted on being sad about something you cannot change but being happy and appreciative of what you've got and how you can use that to help others who are much less fortunate. That little boy gave me so much more than what I could have given him last night." -- @nhamaste 960 1280
