3 things I learned while my plane was crashed

“I no longer want to postpone anything in life. That urgency, that purpose, has really changed my life.”

“I no longer try to be right; I choose to be happy.”

“I regretted the time I wasted on things that did not matter with people that matter.”

Ric Elias was sitting in seat 1D of U.S. Airways Flight 1549 on January 15, 2009 headed to Charlotte, North Carolina, when a flock of Canadian geese collided with the jet.

“When the pilot said, ‘Brace for impact,’ I knew my life was over,” said Elias, “But I was given a chance.”
