        Since I do not ever know if this is my last day or not, probably the same as always, and just live. I been too close to death too many times to fret about it any more.

    I'd beg Gamergent to quit his job and spend my final year of life in his arms.  *waggles brows*

    Did you ever watch that movie, The Bucket List.  Changed my life and made me work seriously on My Bucket List

      Me, too!  I created a tiny list after seeing that movie, because it really made me think about how I take for granted the time I do have to spare now.  Down the line, it may be too late to enjoy the things I've always wanted to do.  Why not start now?

    I'm surprised I would have thought everyone would have a list a mile long, like mine is

    Well it is a good question? We have asked this question to friends family and colleagues and the answer isn't as easy as we think. But I will give it my best!!!
    If I had only one year to live, I would make certain that wills and finances were completely in order. I would travel and see things I have never seen before, if my health allowed. Just like everyone on here has mentioned "The Bucket List", but I certainly wouldn't be chasing women and would not want my ashes to be placed on the top of a mountain, as that would be way to much hiking for anybody!!! big_smile

    A friend of mine was diagnosed and given one year, take a month or two. This was his question to us all at a party he threw a couple of weeks ago. I'm still surprised at how well he's taking all of this. He made a request to all of us to make a list which he wants to read to make sure he hasn't forgotten anything.

    I think other than making sure "affairs" were in order, I'd pretend that I had another 100 years (as I so often do anyway), and just live my life.

    I'd rather live a boring, but normal, year of my "regular" life as if I had 100 more; than live a year, driven by the thoughts of having to do more living (as if my life so far has not been whole enough) and living too aware that the number of tomorrows for me was more limited than I preferred.

    I would probably do the same things that I am doing.  But making sure that I would put my affairs in order too.  I don't want the people in my life left with my unfinished businesses (as much as possible like turning over my responsibilities and delegating it to someone). 

    But it is a very great question because it always reminds me to Say Yes to Life with a Grateful Heart everyday.  When I wrote that hub, it made me realize that how I view my life and the people around me will make each moment beautiful.  And I strive to do that as often as I can. 

    Loving hugs to you guys...

    My personal things are in order have been for many years as I really do not want to burden my children with my unfinished affairs but I'm not sure I could go on as before as I still have sooooo much that I want to see, do and experience. But then I'm also a person that begrudges sleeping, such a waste of time. There is so much I could still do with those extra 5-6 hours a day.

    World tour deff on my list and one would be the Us masters at Agusta, that place is just like heaven. Then pick up as many women as possible, ok so I am dying, doesn't stop me from being shallow so leave me alone, well unless you are female and like to give pity to a poor guy with 365 days left with your name on one of them, 2 days if you are good and 3 if you like watching sport lol.

    Anamika the word tour is on my list too. However 'badcompany99' I don't think pickin' up women will ever be on my list but I guess to each his own.
