My friend Errin

I lost one of my best friends this week. She died in a car wreck. My friend Errin was a young woman with lots of goals many unrealized. Some of these goals we had in common i.e. to have retreats for people that were health focused and fun was one of them. I have had competing thoughts since I heard the news of her death; one she did not realize her full potential and the other she realized her full potential up to this point in her life. The later idea is winning out because Errin was a lifeaholic. Errin lived every moment of her life with passion and purpose. I am not sure we can ask for more than that. I am not saying she did not have more lessons to learn we all do until the day we die. I am saying that she continued to learn, grow and take risks until the moment she was gone. We may have lost an intelligent, compassionate, passionate, and beautiful person but we can learn from Errin to not miss out on a moment of our lives. She made many mistakes I know because we talked about them and she always learned from her mistakes and challenged her self to keep going, to improve.

At her funeral service it was more than evident that Errin had inspired hundreds of people and through them thousands will be inspired. What a life! Her father commented that Errin had lived as much in her short life as many ninety year olds. This is a good goal for all of us. Pursue your dreams even when you don’t know what they are yet. Question, probe and challenge yourself to become better, to become more of yourself, like Errin did. When you know what you want in life don’t stop, never stop until you have achieved your goal. There will be obstacles, road blocks and people blocks (i.e. your self). Get out of your own way, feel the fear and do it anyway.
