What Would You Do???


This is a total hypothetical question... but give it some thought...

What if you were given the knowledge that you will live only 3 more years... there is nothing you can do to change it or prolong it... how would you feel?... what would you do differently?... what would be the first thought that went through your head? How would you spend those next 3 years? Would you treat people differently?.... those that are a part of your daily life... and those that you meet in passing....

Just having a bit of serious pondering for the day...

Absolutely - and it's sad when you think about it - that you don't live that way every day of your life.

I think after the initial shock and sadness and anger...I would try to laugh so much more and not take things as serious as I sometimes do.

That is a very good pondering. Every day, I try to think about how lucky I am in some way and be thankful for it.

Right now I try to do the things I would want to do in the event someone did inform that I only had X amount of years left. I cuddle my son and tell him I love him many times a day. I write a journal to him, that he can read someday (filled with my thoughts on him throughout his childhood, his changes, his growth, my love for him, etc.).

Hopefully I will continue to live conscientiously, as though every year, month, week, and day could be the last. But with the hope that they won't be the last for a very, very long time!

Wow, pretty deep thinking early on a Friday! I think I would be shocked and angry at first, then angry because that is just so little time to really be with my husband and kids. I think I would spend a large portion of my time with them, making sure that I get a lifetime of wisdom to them and prepare them for the rest of their lives. I would tell them that I loved them all the time. I would reconcile with some of my family but otherwise would not chose to spend what little time I had on people who make me miserable. I would spend a lot of time in prayer and preparation for my time to be with the Lord.

i would have to agree with the others here in that i would live each day to the fullest. we all should be doing that already, but sometimes we forget. i would definitely be spending every day with the ones that i love even if it is just hanging out. i would probably take time for myself at first to come to terms with this news. i don't know...

have a great day my friend, much love to you!

I would want to spend more time with my family. I would probably see things in a whole new light. I might want to do somethings I have never done to say I have done them. That's really a hard question.

I used to think I would want to know when my time was going to end, but now that I am older, I don't think I would. I would spend each and every minute of that 3 years with my family that I could in QUALITY time. turning off the tv and the computer and the cell phones, and let my family know that I love them, now and forever. I guess the lesson is why would I have to know I am dying to have to do that?
