A beloved professor in Japan came to learn that his time left on Earth was limited. He didn't want to bring his students down with the news, and so he created one final homework assignment for them.
Here’s a translation of the assignment as pictured above:
Final homework assignment
No due date
Please be happy.
By the time you are ready to turn in this assignment, I will probably be in heaven.
Don’t rush your report. Feel free to take your time.
But someday, please turn to me and say “I did it. I’ve become happy.”
I’ll be waiting.
We should all be students of this teacher. Since this image has begun circulating the student who posted it updated to say the teacher had passed on. Have you thought today about what makes you happy? Maybe a nice cup of warm tea. Or taking a moment to admire some flowers. Whatever it is, go find it. You deserve it.
