My 19 year old friend, Aksel, was suddenly killed. What a tragedy, life is short.

Two weeks ago we lost a great friend Cape Town. A new friend for me, but a great one none the less. So if you’re not doing what you love, spending time with the people you love, & living with a smile & genuine joy in your heart every day, take steps to CHANGE your circumstances now! Live life to the fullest, and do what you’re passionate about.

Life can be over in a split second. In this case, he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time & got hit by a car. He was a guy who always had a big smile that made me & many others happy to see him! We had an epic day with a great group of people Sunday, and I’m happy for that, but I’m devastated that he won’t be able to join me for more of this beautiful life. We had plans to go out tomorrow in Cape Town & meet up in Australia in just a couple weeks that will not come to fruition. I know your soul will rest in a better place Aksel & I know there are countless people missing you. RIP

Make sure that you & the people you love are enjoying every meal, every conversation, & every breath, because it can be gone so fast. As Tim Ferriss wrote in the 4 Hour Work Week,  “I conclude that most people are really confused about life.” Don’t be “most people”!!! Be happy, find a way to do what you love, and no matter what, be happy, positive, & thankful for what you have!

Please pray for his friends and family as well as the others who were physically & emotional hurt by this terrible tragedy. God bless
