No Regrets . . . .

Happyslip posted an inspirational post on her blog.

Professor Pausch's famous last lecture video at Carnegie Mellon University was awesome especially his messages at the end.

Have an awesome weekend everyone!


  1. Oh I just love your photo of the month! :)

  2. Hi Leslie,

    Thanks so much for your comments. Your Photo Hunt picture really reminded me of my visit to San G. Everything around the town was so green and the town itself was really beautifu. My friend and I had so much fun exploring it!

    I also enjoyed Maria's photo of Capri, so I'm going to try and find my Blue Grotto photos from that first trip.

    Its fun remembering! :)

    Have a nice weekend!

  3. I remember seeing this video and being moved by the professor's message. He touched many lives during his tenure at Carnegie Mellon and his message is an inspiration to those who have to deal with this horrible disease. Thank you for posting the video.

    Hope you are enjoying your long weekend!

  4. I wanted to wait til I had time to watch this. As tears stream, I want to thank you for posting this. I had heard about him but had never heard him speak. Very moving.

    I also love your new photo of the month. You should do photohunter with us.

    Happy Sunday!

  5. Hi Maria, thanks for your comments. It was intially hard for me to watch this video let alone write and post about it, but Professor Pausch's message was so meaningful and positive that I just had to as one person said, "add to the ripple".

    My weekend was great, thank you. I hope you had a great one too!

    Have a great week!

  6. Hi Girasoli, I cried too when I first watched this video. It's hard not to. But Professor Pausch's message was so positive and inspirational . . . as hard as it was for me to watch it, I'm so glad that I did.

    Thanks for your comments on my photo! :) I think it would be great to join Photo Hunt. Maybe after I finish orgainizing my Venice photos I'll join in on the fun! And I had a pretty decent cloud photo too.

    Until then, I'll enjoy looking at all your great photos. You all can get pretty creative so I don't know if I'll be able to keep up. But like the saying goes . . . I'll never know, unless I try!

    Thanks again for your comments! Have a great week!

  7. That is indeed a beautiful and inspirational message. Thank you for posting it.

    In a way, it reminds me of David Giuliano's stories of his journey through illness (brain tumour)...his stories were shared in real time as he walked "Through the Valley of Shadows" (the blog name) and written with incredible honesty and grace. He is the Moderator of the United Church of Canada, by the way...and is healing.

  8. Hi Anne, I had not heard of David Giuliano's story. I will definitely check out his blog. Sounds very inspirational too.

    I'm glad you found Professor Pausch's message beautiful and inspirational. It definitely humbled and reminded me of what is truly important in my life. What my passions are. The people in my life . . . I try also try to live my life with no regrets. Very important and inspirational messages for sure.

    Thanks so much again for your comments . . . Have a great weekend!
