The purpose of life is a great mystery. We all think about, even when we try not too. And we all somehow manage to make our own mark on this tiny world that we live in. This month, June 2009, the world suffered the loss of 4 fantastically unique souls. Each one reminding us of equally important values that make this short span of time we spend here on earth a little more tolerable.

but the magic of new beginnings can never really fade.
No matter what you know now, that you didn’t know then.

Michael reminds us that no matter how high in the sky a star is,
there will always be someone or something just waiting to watch it fall.
Shine on, Michael, shine on.

Billy reminds us to find what we are best at, and just go for it until someone hears your voice.
Billy Mays, America’s Salesman.
The timing of these great losses are very unfortunate. These kinds of people inspire us to do our best professionally. They raise the bar when it comes to working hard. And they humanize the reality of our mortality. So for one brief moment we can reflect, and maybe walk away just a little more thankful. And also, what we want out of our own lives can be shown to us in a new and clearer perspective. Don’t take life for granted.
Sending you a little reminder to live life to the fullest of your potential.
Work to live and live to work, find the balance that brings you happiness.
