His Last 51 Dreams

Published on Monday, March 7, 2011 in , , ,

Instead of wallowing in self-pity and dealing with the doctor’s prediction like an inmate on death row, the man  behind the screenname LucidEnding decided not only to LIVE out the last 51 hours of his life, but “dream” them out as well.

Realizing that you’ve lost a longtime battle with cancer is a tough pill to swallow, but in the face of it all, this Oregonian decided to live out his last wish and travel around the world and meet as many new faces as possible. Hmmm…51 hours to do all of that may sound a little farfetched, but since he couldn’t go to the world due to health reasons, the world certainly could come to him, and it DID—in a BIG, BOLD WAY!

It’s easy to give up on a dream, but there’s no silver lining for those that do or even an honorable mention. Holding on to it makes all the difference, and when LucidEnding decided to post a thread on Reddit describing his last wish, within minutes, it had been flooded with comment after comment of people reaching out to a stranger in need. Never have I ever, seen social media being put to such a mindblowing task.

LucidEnding was able to strike up conversations with people from Anchorage, Alaska all the way to the Down Under with the Australians. People were able to not only describe their location, but send pictures of famous landmarks and their favorite spots that represented the best of their cities. And to top it all off, Lucid was able to track his travels and update his adventure by mapping out everywhere he has been with Google Maps.

When I stumbled across his page last night, I was truly inspired, and I hope you will be, too. There’s always a way to chase your dreams. Just Believe, and check out his adventures for some inspiration!
