Keanu Reeves Strikes Yet Again With Another Inspirational Message

Keanu Reeves has been quite a bit in the news lately. After his great success in multiple movies he has managed to stay grounded and humble. He’s been secretly donating millions to children’s hospitals and it’s not a secret that he still uses the subway like any of us.
Not the typical Hollywood actor. But definitely one close to our heart.
A while ago he posted a very inspirational and neat post on his Facebook page:

“None of us are getting out of here alive…”

“My friend’s mom has eaten healthy all her life. Never ever consumed alcohol or any “bad” food, exercised every day, very limber, very active, took all supplements suggested by her doctor, never went in the sun without sunscreen and when she did it was for as short a period as possible — so pretty much she protected her health with the utmost that anyone could. She is now 76 and has skin cancer, bone marrow cancer and extreme osteoporosis.

My friend’s father eats bacon on top of bacon, butter on top of butter, fat on top of fat, never and I mean never exercised, was out in the sun burnt to a crisp every summer, he basically took the approach to live life to his fullest and not as others suggest. He is 81 and the doctors says his health is that of a young person.

People you cannot hide from your poison. It’s out there and it will find you so in the words of my friend’s still living mother: “If I would have known my life would end this way I would have lived it more to the fullest enjoying everything I was told not to!”

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.”

Don’t be so uptight.

It’s cool to live life to the fullest and all that, but it’s not cool to go into extremes and start doing stupid things, like taking drugs or getting drunk everyday. That is definitely not the message here.

Too much of anything is never good. Live a life of balance. Make sensible choices everyday but remember to take a step back now and then so you can chill out.

What do you think of his striking words?
