A 27 year old woman Holly Butche posted a list of life lessons to Facebook. On Jan. 4, she died after a long battle with cancer with her family by her side.
Her emotional letter has been shared over 38,000 times as of Sunday morning.
Holly’s letter should be read in full, but here are a few of the life lessons from somebody who died way too young but already had so much wisdom:
“Be ruthless for your own well-being.”
“Enjoy the bloody moment, people! Stop trying to capture it for everyone else.”
“Appreciate your good health and functioning body — even if it isn’t your ideal size.”
“That’s the thing about life, it is fragile, precious, unpredictable and each day is a gift, not a given right.”
