If today was your last day..

You just found out that today was going to be your last day on Earth. What would you spend your day doing? Who would you want to see? Where would you go? What kind of legacy do you want to leave when you're gone? It's really hard to think of what we would do with our last day if we knew it was coming. This is why we should live every day as it's our last, for we do not know how much time we have left in this world. If today was my last day, I would spend it with the people I care most about. I'd want to try to settle any differences I had with anyone, I would not want to leave on bad terms with someone. I'd cook my favorite meal, and have all my family and friends over for my "last supper." (haha) I would take the time to tell each person how much they mean to me and how much they made a difference in my life. My legacy- When I'm gone, I want everyone to remember me as the fun, caring girl that I am. I want to be remembered as the girl with the heart bigger than the Grand Canyon. I want to be remembered for making peoples lives better, and making a difference. When people look back and think about me, I just want people to smile and remember what a great life I led.

Of course I would also like to spend it with my family. But wait.... what if I can be silly and naive for a minute? What if I sold everything I owned, and then gave the money to all I love? Then what if I applied for 10 credit cards, withdrew the maximum cash possible from each of them and donated to the Cancer Society? Then went to the sperm bank and donated my fast swimmers? And not chose 'anonymous' on the application form. And what if I try to hook up with a couple of women (or 3) and try to get them pregnant? What if...

Hahaha, This is the first Mylot comment to make me laugh out loud. Very nice way to be creative. :) Wouldn't it be nice to just do all those things and donate the money or give the money to someone that really needs it or deserves it. Or just to your friends and family!! :) And hahaha, try to get girls pregnant, oh goodness! Thanks so much for your comment! Happy mylotting!

well i don't care if that's last day or as my regular one. I just keep love to live all my days with joy, work and in relations. If you start getting to know about or think about your future than you can't or can say do nothing in each single day. So keep smile every day and live its every moment with joy.

Wonderful, Jessica! It is great to be so positive. But why shouldn't we push things a little further. Imagine that today is your last day. And tomorrow is your last day too. And the day after tomorrow... and so on. Every moment can be your last one but we are still wasting a lot of our life. We are perfectly aware of this but still... we are planing the future, ignoring the present. The funny thing is that for thousands of years humans planed the future and ignored the now moment. And we still have unanswered questions. After thousands of years... :) Isn't it obvious that those answers are in the 'now' and not in the over explored territories like yesterday and tomorrow.

If today was my last day I would definately try to make time to see as much of my family as possible. I would want everyone that is close to me to know that I love them and care about them all very much. I think life is too short as is and we should do these things everyday. Because in all reality you never know when you last day is you have to cherish everyone you have in your life.I would get everyone together and just make it the best day ever!!!

A very critical question you raised. Apparent reality is that i may not come to know about the day unless a very critical medical situation. Or even if i come to know, i will do.. cannot plan anything. there are some stage of life, when no plan works. You hammered on such a topic !!

If today was my last day, I will contact my family, my friends, my neighbors to give thanks for being part of my journey. Then I called my wife and my children to say that I must live in another dimension. I would ask what else can I give one last time and left several messages about my heritage and place of burial. I'll last a meditation to release the negative energy that may still exist in my subconscious so I can see the creator in a state of peace. I want to be remembered through good science and I give my life during

You're gonna have a very nice last day, jessica! And very similar to mine. I'd spend it outside, in nature, but also surrounded by the people I care about most in the world. I'd go to the beach or somewhere close to the sea, take a swim, laugh a lot, feel every touch, listen to every word, every sound, every wave that's breaking on the shore, enjoy the breeze in my hair, feel the warmth of the sun on my skin, kiss everybody and tell them I love them... But I definitely wouldn't go back home to sleep and never wake up. I'd stay there, on the beach, after everyone is gone, I think I would need some time alone. The last time.

Thanks for opening this very good topic. Well if I have only one day I will spend it with my family. I want to be with them on my last day on earth. I will give thanks to them and ask forgiveness if I have done anything wrong to them. I want them to know how much I love them and I am very thankful that I have a family like them.I want to be ready to face our creator so I think I will spend many hour for praying. I will give thanks to God for all the things that He has done for me from the simplest up to the greatest blessings. I want to thank Him for the trials and the problems that I have successfully conquered. I will also ask forgiveness for all the sins that I have done in my life. I will ask God to welcome me in His kingdom for I want to be with Him in heaven. Before I close my eyes I will ask my mother to sit beside me and hold my hand, I will tell her that she's been a very good mother to me, And I am so lucky to have her as my mom. I will tell her that I love her very much but the time has come that I have to leave her and be with my father as well as to face our Mighty God. I will tell my family that they should not be sad for I will always be in their heart. This is what I wanted to do on my last day.

Hi Jessica! Wow! Good topic! Well if today was my last day, I know I would want to spend the whole day with my daughter.. I would make her a video that she can watch when is is older...I would just like you I would want to eat my favorite meal... See my family... But that would be hard because I have family just about everywhere! Spend time with my boyfriend, and my mother... I would do everything that I can in one day! You know.. I had a friend that passed away not to long ago... He had a bad serious of headaches that didn't go away, when he went to the doctor, the ran tests and it turned out that he had cancer, but it was already full blown cancer, they gave him a week to live... He ended up dying two days after his diagnosis. At least he got to spend time with his children and his family. He turned over his house and everything that he owned to his mother. I just can't imagine how one would feel knowing that they are going to pass!
