Quote a note #2

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.

~Steve Jobs~

Thank you so much https://pascaleshealingjourney.wordpress.com/

Most of my quotes I write myself with a few favorites intermingled in when I feel it. Today I’ll share my favorite of all time with my reason and a photo and link of my son Zak 24 years young, who left this earth July 30, 2017. Way sooner than my heart is capable of understanding fully.

This quote has been on just about everything I’ve ever done. It holds so much depth for me and now it holds even more. Zak was so innovative, he was far beyond the times of today, he knew more than the average human and I always thought he had super powers and now I know he did.

He never let the noise of others drown out his dreams and his goals. He got his first recording deal when he was battling his first round of Leukemia in the hospital. He never stopped even in his bed when he could barely move or sing. He was a blonde, blue-eyed rapper and lived to HIS own beat and he started at about 6. He knew then (because he had superpowers) his time here was limited so he made a quick impact.

He went to Seattle Art Institute for production and wrote tons of songs others use and tons of songs he used, he wasn’t here to impact the faint of heart. He was here to let you know he had something to say and wake up the world, there is more going on than you see.

He never let anyone tell him he couldn’t, it was something I taught the kids young, you say can’t in my presence and that meant push-ups or an essay as to why you think that and how you can change that thought to something more productive or positive.

He always followed his heart and he shared his deepest hurts and truths of the world through his heart and intuition. He felt and saw darkness as deep as he felt and saw the light. He intermingled in both at times in his life as if to create a joining of forces.

He was not afraid to share the reality of life how he saw it and he wasn’t afraid to walk into the darkness and see why people were there. He was the light no darkness could touch, I asked him once, “are you ever scared?” He said,”HELL YA mom I’m scared but that won’t keep me down.” He was internally curious and that is a priceless gift.

BONUS QUOTE: Stand in your truth, don’t back down in pressure but experience the steam, it seldom lasts, but your light will carry on.

  1. I didn’t want to read and run… it sounds like Zak was an amazing person, talented and focused on achieving his dreams. Having been through cancer treatment myself, I know how hard it is, and how cancer can take over your whole life. I just wanted to offer my support.
    Take care

    • Yes he surely did…he fit all he possibly could in..he didnt want to miss a thing.

    • Oh shoot didnt catch that typo thank you for that..ill go change that asap… My son I lost last summer, 2017. Like I said seems like yesterday or maybe more so it never happened…

  2. Going thru the whole process of having cancer twice now, it sounds like a cliche but, once you push through and are out of the darkness that overwhelms you, you have such a heightened appreciation of life. Thank you Kerri for your wonderful post!
