Life is worth living, seriously

Look at us, i mean seriously and deeply, we whine, we sigh, we complaine how bad and dreadful life is. It is all about ourselves, nothing else... ( I am no exception, i am learning too)

When i first read The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch, i was thinking that this guy was amazing, instead of groaning and moaning in pain from the incurable cancer, he stood up infront of millions of viewers to give the last lecture. If this were to happen to us, most of us would have put the blame in whatever that can be blamable including Gods, but Randy Pausch was different, he helped those who were in brink of giving up hopes, assuring them that there would be hope despite the fact that he knew there was none for him, he challenged us to live out our childhood's dreams.

I believe he knew that his time was coming, at least he lived the life he believed that's worth living for, he eventually passed on this 25th of July 2008 at the age of 47.

P/S, Life is worth living


  1. Bro, I was just watching his "Last Lecture" yesterday. And today I saw your blog post on him.

    His words is inspirational, and anybody who think their luck had run out should watch this man speak.

    Tonnes of advice from a man who only had 47 years in this world.

    RIP, Randy.

  2. What a coincidence! I was also reading about Randy yesterday and downloaded his Last Lecture video from youtube! For a man dying of pancreatic cancer, he's extremely positive - it was so touching to see him doing pumping during the lecture just to tell the audience they should not pity him. Very inspirational indeed!

  3. Im reading The Last Lecture now and how inspired he is, knowing he will die of cancer. Im learning from him that 'will' to live.
