I never thought I would lose a best friend before I was twenty years old. This week has been the worst week of my entire life thus far.
But it was also one of the most beautiful, because I experienced pure love by great friends who came together to celebrate your life and comfort each other as we mourn the same loss. I saw just how many lives you touched and how many people love you. You showed everyone genuine kindness, gratitude, and love, that’s what you would like to see in the world and that’s what you composed yourself of. You changed the world best pal. You definitely changed mine. I’m going carry on that gratitude, love, and kindness in my own life. Thanks for being such a beautiful gift to the universe Ian, my infinite being🌻🌌🉐 #2010 #love #bestfriend #gratitude

There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life.
When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create.
Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.-John Lennon
