You were given only two weeks left to live?
Would you... buy those shoes you always dreamed of owning? get a new car? go around telling everyone you love them or exactly who you feel about them? go on a trip and try things like skydiving, water skiing, bungee jump, hang glide, take a cruise?
Or would you sulk and wonder, why me? Spend all of your time fretting over how little time you have instead of how much you do have.
Me? hell yeah, I'd be out there doing all kind of new things, never been on a boat (just cause I cant swim!) the heck with that! Never tasted sushi, well what's the big deal?... I would try food and drink that I have never indulged in before, something to wake my senses and make me feel alive. Not only that, I would talk to everyone around me, because people ARE interesting. The things you can learn from kids, untainted by society or their parents cause they don't understand bias or bigotry. Older people have such a wealth of knowledge. (Always remember this too, old is ALWAYS 10 years older than you are!)
To understand where we are going, sometimes we need to understand from where we came.
Ever wonder how our parents raised us on what they did and how we raise our kids on what we have?
I guess what I'm just trying to say is, maybe we should start living for today instead of tomorrow or wondering if there is something different we could have done to change yesterday.

I would still be doing what I am today. But making plans so that everyone I leave behind is not left with alot of stuff to do!|
