    If you found out you have three weeks left to live...

    How would you spend it?

    Big Question, I can't really say how I'd spend it but I would want to do all the things I'm afraid to now, like telling my best friend I love her, and entering some races (legal ones of course) with my car, maybe visiting some countries and cultures in more dangerous places than I would if I had an entire life to live.

      Max, I think you should tell your friend you love her now... that is too sweet!

    Thanks, Michelle, you really made me think with this question. I would really like to call and talk with some friends in other places but I do not think I would want to go anywhere or do anything different. Maybe I would walk a little further on the beach with my dog, and spend a few more minutes watching my chickens scratch around the yard.
    None of us are really sure how long we have. You should be doing what you want to do now. "Live in the precious present" is a qoute from a philosophy book I once read.

    Probably like I spend it now... except I would ask my daughters to come home and be here with me.  My house and family are my heaven.  I wish this kind of love and happiness for everyone!  Life is short, treasure each moment, tell people you love them, spread joy when you can, lend a hand to those less fortunate and rejoice in your blessings!

    I would try to make every day special and leave behind no loose ends. I would also try to give courage to my family for what's coming ahead....but I don't know if I would tell them about the end being near. Thoughts like this come to me often and I don't know whether it's better to 'rip the bandage off' or 'take it off slowly'. What's your view Michelle?

    I would email the hubpages team for advice on what I should do, then I would wait 3 weeks for a response.

    I will be happy that life will come to an end.....and if the knowledge will be only to me then it will be much better. I will live at normal pace three week to end as may be another twist and change roll play awaits after three week time...who knows and who is sure about it????
    How would you like to spend the three weeks time by the way?
    Thanks and its a good question for sure.

    Make the best use of those days. Don't think about it as you can enjoy every second of it.

    Except for the fact that I have not traveled the way that I would have liked I rather like my life the way it is. One thing that I would definitly do is take myself off this budget and spend, spend, spend.!!!!! What's the use to holding on to cash that I can't take with me; besides my family will be well taken care of so it would be time for me to throw a little money around on myself.

    I would go to a deserted beach and meditate about everything that I accomplished in this life; however, not material things, but spiritual ones. I would project myself up to infinity, obeying my inner desires to undertake the voyage without return to where my actions in this world would have directed me.

    I don't really think anybody can answer this question, because this is such a life and death question, that you have to be in that situation for real. You can guess at the most, but if you are right about your guess....not sure. There are situations in life, where we can't say how we'd react or what we'd do....until we are actually in that situation.

    I would continue to live the way I do, surrounded by the bush and bush animals I love, my family and close friends with a taste of sunshine in my mouth and a salty ocean breeze playing in my hair:)
