If 2009 would be the last year of your life, how would you live it?

I posted this question in relation to the new year that's coming in.. At the risk of sounding morbid, my objective for posting this discussion topic is actually for the readers who come across this question to make an honest reflection. I am, of course, praying that people will also be generous and humble enough to share about their answers to this.. As for me.. If 2009 woul be the last year of my life, I would live it more prayerfully, more lovingly and more compassionately. I would go through my job just like I always do but I would spend more time with the people who are closest to me. I would still open my heart to any new friends whom I might meet until my last day. I would write about practically every moment that passes by, taking pictures whenever I can. I would make prior arrangements for my funeral and prepare a special message of gratitude for all the people who've been a part of my life. I would.. still choose to OBEY, whatever the Lord will want me to do, WHEREVER He will send me and with whom I'll be going. I would.. I would live.. and I would still love.

I don't think that I can answer your question any better that you did. That is how I would hope that I would live out my last year of life. Very well said.

if 2009 was the last year of my life i would visit the places i wish to visit in my whole life. go on a vacation with the love of my life spend some quality time with her. give my family all the happiness in the world and do something for them that after i am not there they remember me through it. hang out with friends more often than i do. try and do all the things i ever wished of doing so that the day i die i dont have any regrets in life.

if 2009 was the last year of my life i just wouldn't care about anything. I would eat fast food every day, smoke more, drink more, stop working and just use the time with the people i love...
