The truths that come from the mouths of babes can be nothing short of incredible sometimes.
In this stop-motion animation film about the real meaning of life, a 6-year-old girl narrates and asks, "How sad would it be to get to the end of your life and realize you never truly lived?" After citing scientific research finding the main regrets of elderly people to be the things they didn't do rather than the things they did, she encourages us to genuinely consider the path we would like our lives to take.
"This is your life, you're in control," she says in the video uploaded to YouTube. "You gotta do what feels right in your heart ... A great man or woman will never fit in because they stand out."
As you listen to her explain the meaning of life, it's easy to reminisce on your own childhood, the days when you were guided strongly and honestly by your own heart to follow your dreams -- no matter how big.
"If greatness was easy, you would see a lot of successful people, a lot of great people -- astronauts, professional athletes or superheroes," she says. "But you don't -- you see a lot of people with big mouths making excuses on Facebook trying to get 'likes,' but they don't even like themselves."
She is sharing a lifetime of knowledge in this video, from which we could all stand to learn a thing or two.
