Close Kept Secrets to Weight Loss Lesson #16


Today is the most wonderful day! We have gifts right in front of us and we are ready to grab those gifts and say WAHOO! Look around you at your extraordinary treasures.

For my 50th birthday, my nieces gave me a CD by Tim McGraw entitled Live Like You Were Dying. They paid me a wonderful compliment and said, “Aunt Tami, you’re the one we think of who is living like you were dying.” What a powerful message to me as I blast that song every morning to rev up my energy. Of course, picturing Tim in those tight jeans helps!

Remember I used to live in such deep doo doo with fear and worry. Through daily practice my connection to God becomes clearer–it’s corrosion free. It takes practice to transcend fear and putting those daily activities in place to help bring in the positives. Want to have some fun with your inner child? Sticking your tongue out at fear does help. So let’s practice. Stick out your tongue and face your fears and shout, “You’re not the boss of me.” It’s kind of hard to have your tongue hanging out while talking but it sure feels good, doesn’t it?

I am reprinting some lines from the song so you can breathe in the message.

Live Like You Were Dying

He said, “I was in my early forties, with a lot of life before me,

When a moment came that stopped me on a dime.

And I spent most of the next days looking at the x-rays

And talking “bout the options, talking “bout sweet time.”

And I asked him when it sank in

That this might really be the end.

“How’s it hit you when you get that kind of news?

Man what’d you do?” He said,

“I went sky diving; I went rocky mountain climbing;

I went two point seven seconds on a bull named Fumanchu.

And I loved deeper, and I spoke sweeter.

And I gave forgiveness I’d been denying.”

And he said, “Someday I hope you get the chance

To live like you were dying.”

He said, “I was finally the husband that most the time I wasn’t.

And I became a friend a friend would like to have.

And all ‘a sudden going fishin’ wasn’t such an imposition

And I went three times that year I lost my dad.

And I finally read the good book and I took a good long look

Powerful message, right? So what are you going to do? Tell a friend you love him or her. Call a family member whom you haven’t forgiven and forgive. Do something nice for your neighbor. Ready to ride the bull? Just for today, “Live Like You Were Dying!”
