You know how sometimes someone unexpected crosses paths in your life and you instantly form a connection? I believe we are meant to connect with these people. They are here to teach us something exactly at the right time that they appear in our life. Today Jenn S. shares her Personal Hero, J. Chris Toushan. Chris was one of these beautiful souls that had his own internal struggles but made it his mission to make each persons life that he touched a little bit brighter. Sadly, Chris recently passed away and many people that connected with him and found inspiration and hope through his messages were left with great sadness in the way too early passing of a beautiful Personal Hero. Jenn reflects on her connection with Chris...\n. . . . . . . . . . \nSometimes complete strangers, people you haven't ever met in person, can be a part of you "handful" of best friends. My heart is heavy this morning in finding out about the loss of him. This man, my friend Chris, over the past few months, has been one of my best friends to reach out to. Genuine, kind, filled with daily motivation, heart-filled selflessness. You were one of the good seeds. A beautiful soul. Constant love bestowing upon your friends and followers. Reaching out to me during the hardest times...a special friendship through social media, hoping someday we all come together to hug it out! \n. . . . . . . . . .\n \n\nWho is your Personal Hero?
