I knew, somehow, that I had to stay alive. Somehow. I had to keep breathing. Even though there was no reason to hope. And all my logic said that I would never see this place again. So that’s what I did. I stayed alive. I kept breathing. And one day that logic was proven all wrong because the tide came in and gave me a sail. And now, here I am. I’m back. In Memphis, talking to you. I have ice in my glass. And I’ve lost her all over again. I’m so sad that I don’t have Kelly. But I’m so grateful that she was with me on that island. And I know what I have to do now. I gotta keep breathing, because tomorrow the sun will rise. Who knows what the tide could bring? -Chuck Noland
Always remember that no matter where you are at in the ladder of life/success, always keep in mind to be appreciative on everything you have in life. Because in an instant, everything could be taken away. Always live in an attitude of gratitude. Don't wait for someone to tell you that you only have weeks, months, or days to live. LIVE NOW! Enjoy this incredible journey that we call "life."
