The Lessons Whitney Taught Me

On Saturday, February 11, 2012, we lost an amazing woman.  Her name was Whitney Elizabeth Houston.  It took some time for me to process this.  I was extremely heart-broken at this news.  Although I did not know her, I could not help but to feel robbed for her daughter, her mother, the rest of her family, and her fans.  I’ve asked myself, what is the lesson here?  What can we all learn from Ms. Houston’s untimely death?  Here is what I have come up with:

  • We cannot overestimate what our bodies can handle.  We must take care of ourselves as if we were children.  It is easy to forget that as we get older, we may not bounce back as quickly as we used to.  Be good to yourself.  Treat yourself gently.
  • Say what you have to say now.  Tomorrow is not promised.  This isn’t a new concept but it needs to be said.  If you have something to say to someone, say it now.  Don’t wait.
  • Live your life, now.  If there is a goal you want to attain, don’t wait to work for it. Chase it and go after it.  Work towards your life’s purpose.  You don’t know how much time you have left on this earth.
If there is something else that Whitney’s life or death has taught you, please feel free to comment below.

In honor of Ms. Houston, I’ve posted two videos showing the God-given talent that she had. May you rest in peace Ms. Whitney Elizabeth Houston.
