If You Were Told You Only Had 3 Months to Live – How Would You Spend Your Days?

Apologies if this question comes across a little morbid but sometimes I think its this type of question that really gives you a shake up and shouts out to you “WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIFE!!”
You maybe asking yourself (I know Edward is) how does gwhite come up with these wacky questions. Well a couple of years ago my best friends dad was told he literally overnight that he had terminal cancer and it had spread so much and aggressively that they said he would probably have 6 months to life. The weird thing was that apart from appearing a little grey in colour he seemed fit and healthy. The cancer was in his chest, back and neck and although he was in slight pain it was tolerable.
So once he’d spent a couple of weeks in a pit of depression he went out for a drive, not fully with it he crashed his car. After being unconscious for 2 days he woke up in hospital, luckily with no injuries and hadn’t injured anyone else. He then remembered his fate, but it was like a switch had been turned on in his head, he organised an emergency get together which included all close family and friends of the family.
We all turned up on the Saturday afternoon and he started doing a presentation on a flip-chart!! He had created a bucket list of 24 things that he wanted to achieve before he died. Anyway to cut a longer story short (which he would have appreciated) he achieved all 24 things on the list within 3 months and actually died peacefully at home in his sleep.
However whilst around his house for an impromptu BBQ about 3 weeks before he passed someone asked the question – “Why hadn’t you done any of these things before your diagnoses?” John was retired and very well off financially and he simply replied “I lost focus on what was important, I forgot to take 5 minutes to breath. I spent too much time thinking and not enough time doing”
John was a great guy and the legacy carries on with his wife and son who have been making bucket lists every few months and making sure they get them done. They are two of the happiest people I know.
Live life to its fullest!!

Three months is a very long time if you know exactly when you will leave this beautiful world.

I always treat today as if it is the last day of my life. Because it might, having this conviction help me understand the best actions that I should take. First and foremost, I would not waste the precious time that I still have in my keeping. How I do this? By neither mourning yesterday disappointment nor thinking about how the future will unfold. In essence, I will forget yesterday and not thinking of tomorrow. I will focus and enjoy my “today.”

And specifically, what will I do?

I will not procrastinate on my job because procrastination is the number one killer of my time. The task of today, I will fulfill today. And I will also fondle my children today because I cannot do that again tomorrow. I will also kiss my woman with sweet kisses because tomorrow I can’t do that anymore. I will dedicate myself today to my work-life because there is nothing I can dedicate myself to tomorrow.

Just imagine if you know that you have three months left. How many tasks can you complete, how many happy moments you can impress upon your child, and how many kisses you can give to your woman? That is why three months is a long time.

If it is true that you have three months left in your life, then you have to treat each day left as if it is your last. But if it is not (which is possible), then you should give thanks to God.

After sorting out my will and estate issues, I’ll make a list of things I still can do. Start doing them one by one, ticking them off the list, making sure that I’m fully focused all the time. This, I hope, will bring some satisfaction and a sense of finality and closure.

Thanks for the question g. That is a very interesting question as I have had an illness that required a positive attitude and I live with the after effects every single day.
If a doctor told me I only had three months to live I would have to maintain my sense of humour spend a lot of time with my family and then I would travel around this great brown land and if my body allowed I would travel to some places that I have always wanted to travel to. I would also ensure that my wife is looked after as far as living arrangements and I would ensure my affairs have been organised ready for my demise.

I would definitley spend the last 3 months of my living days with my best friend as he is always there for me even in my dark days and i appreciate his loyalty. And most importantly my family, and some of them are quite good and some are bad, but anyway family is family nobody can change that even if it cost us to go to the beach and chill that would be the most fun thing to do.

This is not a good thing to hear at all. 95% of people will die before the days arrived. I don’t expect to hear but in case I hear that trust me a Will spent at the rest of days at the church praying God to forgive me for my sins, at all bad habits I did in my life.

Thanks gwhite for this question! To me I think 3months to live is too short time to accomplish any feasible project. But since that would the only time in my life, I think it’s better to spend it family and friends. Then, Id try to repair my relationship with my all the time, reflecting on all the things that have not gone may be in the past and try to putting them right, preparing for the last days.

If I was told that I have 3 months to live, I will begin to pray for longer life because is only God who can reserve and keep life. I will ask God to change the situation that resulted in man given death day to follow man, like in Bible sent a man through a prophet that he should put his house in other because he’s going die in few days, the Bible said that the man begin to pray and God sent back the same to tell him that he had given him more 15years to live.

Thank you so much for sharing this story it is absolutely moving. I would spend my last 3 months alive with the people that matters the most as would many others and I would definitely go bungee jumping for sure if the thought of dying in a couple of months does not have me bedridden and miserable.

Gareth White answered 2 months ago

Great answer Shane – yes bungee jumping and sky diving are definitely on my list. In fact that’s it – why wait until I have only 3 months to live. As soon as COVID lockdown has ended I’m going to book a skydiving experience.
