So i had no idea where to post this. If any mods think it would fit better elsewhere feel free to move it. I'm not going to post much of the link. I encourage everyone to take some time and read this guy's story. It's long but it's worth the read. The amount of luck and bravery this man had is incredible. I'm going to post a small excerpt from the end that I feel is a good takeaway message from this. But please, take the time to read the whole thing.

I have always been a positive person, but nowadays I am even more so. I enjoy every single moment of life and feel grateful for what I have. Life is a gift and we should enjoy it for as long as it lasts.

You know, sitting on the beach in Greece with friends I've heard people complaining that because we had a financial crisis they miss some of the comforts they used to have. I am like, "Come on! Enjoy your life and health. You are eating sardines and drinking Ouzo by the beach. We are free, we have good friends around and we laugh - this is what people are supposed to do."

Don't concentrate only on work, stressful and bad things in your life. Concentrate instead on creating good moments and being around good people, because life is so beautiful.
