What would you do if you come to know that u have just 24 hours of life?

I think this question is profoundly interesting because these ARE the last days of your life, you just do not, or cannot determine the exact amount of time you have left.

I have a friend who has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. He is not a young man, in fact it could be said, he has lived most of his natural life anyway. Yet, just the mere fact that he has been given a loose parameter of time wherein his death might fall, has changed the quality of life he lives each day. He may in fact have had the same amount of time without the prostrate tumour, he was morbidly overweight and high blood pressure.

Yet the fact that he has been given a final date, itself has changed something in him. He now lives each moment to its fullest in complete joy. He does things everyday he may have been too lazy or disinterested to try before the diagnosis. In fact he lives now as we all should live, as if each breath we take is an eternal gift. The irony is, we often need an outside influence to put us into this perspective of happiness, and are often not able to find it ourselves. Why is that?

  • Just 24 hours to live...
    I would leave work and come home... hold my wife's hand and hold her tightly in my arms.
    Probably towards the evening i would sit with her outside and watch the sunset's reflection in her eyes

  • I would waste any money I have on some travels. i would also try and have loads of sex with really attractive women... even if it is a prostitute. I don't believe in an afterlife by the way.

  • If we're being realistic... I'd probably just cry the whole entire day while telling everyone I know that I love them and will miss them. That's probably what I'd do.
