5 Quotes to Help You Live Like You Are Dying

  1. “Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.”
    —Norman Cousins
  2. “There are far worst things than dying. Not living while you have a chance is one of them.”
    —Coach Lee
  3. “If you were going to die soon and had only one phone call you could make, who would you call and what you say? And why are you waiting?”
    —Stephen Levine
  4. “Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time, it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.”
    —Sydney J. Harris
  5. “The fear of death follows the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.”
    —Mark Twain

Where is Chere savoring life?

Savoring is a quality that happy people naturally have in abundance.

Savoring = to mindfully engage in thoughts or behaviors that heighten the effect of positive events on positive feelings. There are 3 temporal forms of Savoring: (1) Anticipatory (2) In the Moment and (3) Reminiscent. We can savor a positive event before it happens by getting excited in preparation for it, we can savor the positive event as it occurs and we can savor a positive event by remembering it. What are you savoring today?

With eager anticipation we all awaited our mom’s 85th birthday. We ordered a tasty yellow cake with chocolate frosting from Sendik’s and broasted chicken. We celebrated for four days. The best? Just being together!

I have really enjoyed being the chair of the Nutrition Entrepreneurs, a dietetic practice group of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. In October we all attended FNCE our annual conference in Atlanta. We have a great team of 30 registered dietitians from around the country who own their own businesses and want to help others succeed. We have a goal of 3700 members if you are a RD and not a member please consider joining.


You get what you expect and I always expect to win using the law of attraction. I won a dinner for 18 at Dickey’s. The dinner was graciously donated by Dr. Chris Erickson, D.C. from Discover Life Chiropractic Center.

Siggi’s sponsored a Nutrition Entrepreneur breakfast at our annual Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo in Atlanta. Siggi felt homesick for skyr a thick, creamy, high protein yogurt from his native Icleland. We are lucky his mom sent him a recipe and he began making skyr in his small New York city kitchen. The rest is history. He is gracious, humble and fun to hang around with. Thank you Siggi for making yogurt without any artificial preservatives, thickeners, sweeteners, flavors or colors.
