Holly Butcher, an Australian woman, left us on the morning of 4th of this month. At mere age of 27, she has found something important which we just aspire to search for. She had a rare form of cancer, and just a day before leaving the earth she penned down a powerful letter for all of us. I just happened to come across that post. It touched me somewhere and left me humble and teary for a while. Re-posting it for you guys.
By no means, I own the rights or wanna take credit for this post. Just felt like sharing it 🙂
A bit of life advice from Hol:
It’s a strange thing to realise and accept your mortality at 26 years young. It’s just one of those things you ignore. The days tick by and you just expect they will keep on coming; Until the unexpected happens. I always imagined myself growing old, wrinkled and grey- most likely caused by the beautiful family (lots of kiddies) I planned on building with the love of my life. I want that so bad it hurts.
That’s the thing about life; It is fragile, precious and unpredictable and each day is a gift, not a given right.
I’m 27 now. I don’t want to go. I love my life. I am happy.. I owe that to my loved ones. But the control is out of my hands.
