This 17 year old with Progeria, a rare, rapid aging disease is proof that happiness is just a choice!
No matter what I choose to become I believe that I can change the world. And as I’m striving to change the world, I will be happy. -Sam Berns
Here are his 3 steps to being happy!
# 1. Be ok with what you can’t do because there is so much you CAN do. Most of Sam’s time is spent focusing on the activities he can do that bring him joy, not the limitations that his disease poses.
# 2. Surround yourself with people you want to be around.
# 3. Go forwards – don’t look backwards! Being brave isn’t supposed to be easy. But you can keep moving forwards!
And a bonus #4 — Never miss a party if you can help it!
Would you be willing to change the world by being happy, too?
