If you knew you had exactly 24 hours left to live, what is the one thing you would do no matter what?

Report as

I would spend the time making a special box for each member left of my family (not many left) with mementos and photos for them with a letter to each of them telling them how beautiful they are and to strive for all they each believe.

Thank you Koi ! Do you know I never saw any of these other comments until I saw yours? I don't know if notifications weren't working then or what bit they must think I'm a rude rude person not to reply to them. Yes my dad died I think a week before this question. There is just my sister and I left-my brother removed himself from the family. (figuratively) He refused to believe my dad was dying and didn't go see him and now he's in remorse and says he's never speaking to us again. He has ALWAYS been the type to blame his whole life on everyone else though.

I get what you're saying. I had an aunt that was warped, sadly, I disowned her after she came to visit my terminal mom and refused to leave when I asked her to. Mom was so sensitive to conflict that I couldn't fight with her, so she stayed. Later than same evening, Mom slipped into a coma and never regained consciousness. It was my aunt's fault, at least that's what I believe, she overtired her and she lost the will to fight. It would have happened eventually, but she forced it. She was always a spoiled, self-centered, rude person, and it just got worse as she got older. She was on oxygen for asthma, but continued to smoke even with the oxygen nearby. She burned down her house once, caught herself on fire once when the oxygen ignited, and finally died after again catching herself on fire when the cigarette ignited the oxygen. Terrible way to die. We reconciled somewhat near the end of her life, but I never did get over what she did to my mom. Kind of conflicts with the loving, forgiving person I strive to be...I can live with that. As for your brother, it's frustrating when an adult refuses to accept any responsibility for their own bad decisions, but he'll learn someday--karma you know. Hugs to you and yours.

Thank you Koi. Yup, that's exactly the type of person I am speaking of...selfish. I think be will be very very sorry.

Finish the laundry, make all the beds and tidy up the house. Head to the bakery, and get some decent pastries for the funeral. Take a nice shower, and get my hair done. Maybe a nice manicure. Arrange for the mortician to be sure that my face is fixed with a nice smile.

I think I appreciate the truth more since it is not easily revealed. The most amazing times are when I can see no useful reason for something to have happened and then--when things seem so down and hopeless, my thinking becomes clear. I can see the truth so clearly and I wonder why I couldn't see it before. That was a long way of saying it!!

Okay, blades, I'm on the way home and I'm trying to decide what I'm supposed to learn! Today, the sessions were so much better than yesterday. Yet, the others wanted to skip out on the last two classes. I'm a little disappointed, but I was outnumbered and I'm not the driver. So, I asked them to wait while I went and asked for the handout. I'm sure there's a nugget of truth I need uncover.

Call everyone i love, tell them bye. Then i'd get my guitar, and amp. Jam one last time with my bros. After, ill go hug my ex for being the greatest person to grace me with her beauty. Then ill go to the docks in new orleans, stare at the setting sun and reflect on the time i've been here. And all of the people i helped and the love and care i gave to those who needed.

Spend time with the people I love, without a doubt. No goodbyes though, I hate goodbyes. I would just enjoy them.
I would also like to do one last act of kindness before I died, so that I could go with the knowledge that I did something good with my life.

It would be most important to me to comfort my loved ones by telling them I'm not afraid of death and I'll be just fine, they have been perfect in my eyes so they have nothing to regret, assure them I'll be watching over them and taking care of their other loved ones that have gone before me. And above all, reassure them by reminding them I'm going to be closer to God, so how can that be a bad thing? It would just be like I was going to a foreign country, I couldn't communicate with them, but I'm fine and learning all kinds of new things.
