Live Like You’re Dying

Every now and then something comes along to remind us to appreciate life and how quickly it can be gone. In 2006, Tim McGraw came out with the song “Live Like You’re Dying.” The song captured a feeling that many people share about life being too short. In the song, it talks about going skydiving. Skydiving has always been the face of living life fully because today could be your last.

Skydiving is one of those rocking chair moments. When you’re retired and sitting in your rocking chair remembering all the really exciting things you’ve done in your life, skydiving will be on the list! Even if you only make one skydive in your life, you will remember that day as if it was yesterday. As anyone who’s been skydiving will tell you, you have to do it to understand the feeling of jumping from an airplane, free falling, and flying a parachute to the ground.

A survivor with inoperable cancer wrote the following:

I am motivated by two signs in my home, a commonly available one says, “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” It’s on my living room wall and I see it only after I have my morning tea beneath a sign on my kitchen cabinet that admonishes, “Life is not about going to the grave in a beautiful, well preserved body, but by sliding in sideways, totally worn out, and proclaiming, “WOW, what a ride!!”

This thought is why people make a skydive. “Live Like You’re Dying” and you’ll live a full life with no regrets.
