A Day Before Her Death, This 27-Year-Old Wrote A Letter, And It May Change Your Life Forever

Viral

You might be dissatisfied with your life. Not enough money, unfulfilling job, meandering relationship. Perhaps you spend too much time online arguing about politics with strangers. Sometimes we all feel like something is missing, and perhaps all we need is a little perspective.

“If something is making you miserable, you do have the power to change it – in work or love or whatever it may be. Have the guts to change. You don’t know how much time you’ve got on this earth so don’t waste it being miserable.”

These are the words of Holly Butcher, from Grafton in NSW, Australia. She recently lost her battle with Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare form of cancer that primarily affects young people. Holly was just 27 when she passed away.

As she came to terms with her mortality, a heartrendingly painful thing to have to do at such a young age, Holly decided to write an open letter about the lessons she learned, reflecting on the way her experience made her come to value every second of her time on earth. “I’m 27 now. I don’t want to go,” she wrote. “I love my life. I am happy… I owe that to my loved ones. But the control is out of my hands.”

Perhaps Holly’s words, coming from the heart with passion and a searing honesty, will help people to see the bigger picture, one that is often lost in a sea of ultimately meaningless stresses and worries that quickly consume our everyday existence. She urges us to grasp the things that are important, and live life to the full. “That’s the thing about life, it is fragile, precious, unpredictable and each day is a gift, not a given right.”

Scroll down to read Holly’s letter, give your loved ones a hug, and smile, because you are alive!

Holly had been diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare form of cancer that primarily affects young people

“I always imagined myself growing old, wrinkled and grey- most likely caused by the beautiful family I planned on building with the love of my life. I want that so bad it hurts”

“That’s the thing about life; It is fragile, precious and unpredictable and each day is a gift, not a given right”

“Tell your loved ones you love them every time you get the chance and love them with everything you have”
