Being Struck By Lightning Helped This Man Reassess His Priorities

Sometimes we need to be reminded to live in the moment and be grateful for the people in our life. One man's reminder came in the form of a lighting bolt.

Stuart Acher, a film director, joined HuffPost Live host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani to discuss how getting struck by lightning gave him a new perspective on life.

"When you're extremely driven or want something in life, you can neglect other things," said Acher, who said the entire incident has taught him to be more grateful. "Im grateful to be here, I'm grateful to actually have had this experience, but I'm also grateful of all the love and support from my family and friends."
