    He saying not to wait til you're dying. Do those things now be special to thise closest to you love deeper be sweeter. Look around you and take the time and see what you normally do not. Have fun now and love like you were dying. Make amends with those you need to. Don'e leave any loose ends. Handle your business the things that you feel guilty for having done; to just fix them. Say those things that should have been and/or should be said as if you will never be given a chance later to say them. Live like you were dying. I can relate I am dying I have stage 4 breast cancer.

    My mother died at 43 from breast cancer and I am 43 years old now and I too have been diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer and graves disease. I had just started school and wanted to get that degree finally now that my kids are grown and I lost my job. I was trying to get in the army at 40 when I found out that I had cancer and that dream of army was gone. Life stopped on a dime. It takes money to do anything but I would do all these things if I had the money to do it any of these things at all. I haven't done anything and all I want to do is to see the states just once to drive across the states and back. Everything is so much more beautiful if you lived like you were dying. Thank you, tim.
