This speech is the one my husband decided to use for his homework this week, and I choose to listen to it with him since I am a huge Steve Job’s fan! I think he’s an inspiration because he became extremely successful without a college degree. I found this speech to be quite interesting, and also made me really think about my own life and what I am gaining from it. I won’t go into details about his speech because I really want you to watch it!! It’s only 15 minutes and 5 seconds long, but it’s filled with an important message!
When you lose someone near and dear to you to cancer at an early age, like I have, you tend to look at life completely differently! My mom’s final words to me was, “live life with no regrets!!” I have been working extremely hard to make sure that I do that everyday!! I am extremely happy with my life right now, and I am comfortable with all the decisions I have made in my past, even my biggest mistakes. I have learned that my past mistakes have only helped me become the person that I am today. However, yes, there are times that I wish I could have the rewind button because I would definitely use it and cherish my mother, and marry Del back on July 19, 1998, the day we were originally suppose to get married. However, despite all of the hardship, I can say, I’m able to FULLY APPRECIATE every bit of my life.
Even today, we had seven kids (my two nephews, my niece, one of Jimmy’s friends, and of course, Little Del and Jimmy, and yes, I included Zeva because she was VERY playful today.) The kids played outside from 8am this morning until about 3:30pm. We had a cookout, and fully enjoyed this wonderful day outside. Then they got tired of playing football, digging in the sand, and riding the swing set, and chasing each other around. So, we came inside and watched Transformers 3. I don’t understand what the kids see in that movie because to me it is very long and drawn out. Of course, most of the kids fell asleep during the movie. 🙂 My husband even got out there and threw the football with the boys today, and normally he doesn’t have the chance to do that. It was so nice.
Now, it’s time to wind down for the day. Please take the time to watch the speech. I would love to read your comments on it!! I hope your having a blessed day!!
