Do Something That Scares You

FullSizeRender

For this week’s blog post I decided to do a friend of mine who has been through so much with me. Her name is Victoria but most people call her Tori. She is such a beautiful person inside and out. She is such an inspiring person and always seems to know what to say. When I asked her the question her initial response was “wow one day isn’t a lot of time”. That is the response I figured I would get when I asked people the question. She then went on to say “I would probably do the things that scare me the most, I would try to cram it into one day.” That is something that inspires me about tori is the fact that she would do things that challenge her with only one day to live instead of doing things that are comfortable.

I would start my day at midnight and I would stay up for those 24 hours. I would start with a night hike and probably really look at the things around me and take in and appreciate my last day.  I would want to go on the hike with the people that I love, or anyone who would want to go. I would want to have a big breakfast, like a big huge feast breakfast. It would be like a 3 am breakfast. I would then go skydiving and bungee jumping. I would probably go to the beach and go swimming and swim out to the bouy, because that is a really big fear of mine. Following the beach I would go have a nice lunch made by mom, maybe some tacos. I wouldn’t be vegan that day. I would eat everything. Then I would probably go to church. At night time I would have a dinner, a big farewell. I would want it like the “Fault in our Stars” where the people say their eulogy to the main character while he was still alive before he died. I would want it like this because I want to hear what people have to say about me. I would want to have an open mic where anyone can come and say the best stories so I can relive the best moments of my life and think about the worst. I want to feel like i’ll be missed, everyone does. The very last thing I would do is I would probably try to do something inspiring to people.”

Everyone has fears but comment below what scares you the most and why? Try to do at least one thing a day that scares you and as tori said “live everyday like it is your last!”

 

Good Food and Family Beach Days

For the next blog post I decided to do my family, the people in my life that constantly support, love and inspire me. As I have mentioned before, I will be asking everyone the same question, “If you only had one day to live, what would you do?” so these are the responses from my family.
If eye only had one day to live I would have my wife, all my children and their spouses, their children (my grandchildren), my brother my in-laws and a few close friends all gather at a beautiful beach in Santa Barbara for a wonderful day consisting of surfing, swimming, playing ball and taking walks. During the day I would slide off and call some people that had a positive impact on my life and thank them for taking the time to help make me a better person. That evening we would enjoy a wonderful BBQ and then we would sit around a fire, tell stories of our youth and the impactful moments of our lives. Then I would tell everyone how much I loved each and every one of them and how THEY made my life so fulfilled and WONDERFUL!”- Bill Pintard (my dad)

If eye only had one day left to live I would want to spend it with my family trying to do as many things as possible. We would travel west to New Zealand to be greeted by a helicopter and taken to a bridge. At that bridge we would go bungee jumping into a river to be greeted by a river raft. That river raft would take us down the river to get back on the plane and fly to Switzerland to go to the Alps for a delicious lunch with Swiss chocolate for dessert and a cappuccino. Then we would travel to Provence France and smell the lavender on a walk through the quaint town and have a quick pastry snack. Then we would travel to the Bahamas for lobster dinner at a restaurant and a spectacular sunset.”- Kris Pintard (my mom)

If eye only had one day to live I would try to do as much as I can in one day! I would eat all my favorite foods at my favorite restaurants and I would spend as much time with my parents, sister, Ryan and Brooklyn as
I could. We would go to the beach or lake to go wake boarding or surfing. I would watch the sunset at the beach or lake.” -Brittney Pintard (my sister)

 As you can tell my family loves food, what food would you eat if you only had one day to live? let me know down below!!

Traveling the world and Changing lives

image4If eye only had one day to live I would travel the world and change lives. That was the first thought that came to my head when I asked myself the question, “If I only had one day to live what would eye do?”. Luckily I have had the opportunity to travel to Europe and some places and the United States and I loved it. I loved the aspect of submersing myself in other cultures and living my everyday life in a completely different way. There are so many places that I want to travel to but my top choices is to Greece, Croatia and Milan. During the traveling excursion I would want my closest friends and family with me so I can surround myself with people who love me and I know I will have a good time with them. Another reason I would want to travel is because I would want the day to last as long as possible to achieve many things.

image7Making an impact on people’s lives is something that is very special to me. I love seeing people happy and I love creating opportunities for people that they may not have had before. My dad is the one who inspires me to do this because that is what he does and I get to see some of the outcomes of this rewarding process. He gives children battling cancer many different experiences that they would not be able to have had without him. He created an organization, Hugs for Cubs, because his son, my brother, battled cancer but unfortunately lost his life to that battle. But while he was fighting he continued to be positive, inspiring, and supportive to those who were also dealing with cancer. Seeing people, especially children, not be able to achieve their maximum potential because of something holding them back that they can’t control is absolutely heartbreaking to me so I want to at least change that for one person and make such a big impact on their lives that they will remember me forever in the most positive way ever.
